This is a nice safari with lots of different animals that you can see. I liked the gates that separated the "worlds". There was also camp Aventura which they have fun activities there like Giraffe feeding and gliding. Gliding cost extra money. Otherwise, interesting informational...More

We enjoy riding on the trucks and listening to information about the animals as we see them. They have elephants, bears, tigers, white rhinos, water buffalo, just a large variety of animals.

The last time I went on this safari was close to 15 years ago. Back then you drove your own car though the exhibit and it was not special. Now that six flags took a page from Disney and made it a off road adventure...More

Many species of animals to see and learn about. A large vehicle takes you through the area to see the animals, some very up close and personal. Area where you can feed the animals too. Roads can some times be bumpy.

The revamped safari is really great. You must get there first thing. First of all the animals are more lively and the lines get long. Definitely time your safari so you can feed the giraffes. I think they only do that twice a day. The...More

This used to be a drive through Safari, but now is a ride attraction in the main theme park. It is still a great way to see the many animals. The only down side is the line is usually long and slow to get on.

Probably is not what you really expect (or for me it wasn’t what I had expected), but you can see a lot of animals free during your ride in a shuttle. Is not like safari in Africa, but is nice. I think for children is...More

This was by far the best part of Six Flags, the staff was GREAT, very welcoming and personable. The giraffe feeding was so much fun although it was an additional cost $6-8. It was well worth it.

The time that the safari closes changes through out the year. It operates from late March to Early November. If you want to ride, make sure that you are in line by 4 pm.

There is a .pdf file on the Park's website about guests with disabilities and accessibility. There is a description about every ride -- scroll down to the section about the off-road safari
