JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ
So many of us grew up taking family drives through Six Flags Great Adventure's Wild Safari.
We all surely have stories of piling into the family car and watching buffalo graze, giraffes mosey past, and ostriches try to gobble up cameras and other things that were safely protected behind the car windows.
And of course plenty of us came out the other side with monkey footprints covering the car (if you were lucky. If you weren't, you might have ended up short of a radio antenna!).
The largest drive through safari outside of Africa opened in 1974, with thousands of families taking the DIY tour until 2012, when the park moved away from the model of individual personal vehicles driving through on their own and opened the Safari Off Road Adventure, where guests get onto park-run vehicles to go through the safari in 2013.
