If you have ever been to one of the many Six Flags theme parks in the United States, Mexico, or Canada, you’ll know that a trip to Six Flags is a day full of fun, laughter, and entertainment — something that many of us have been lacking recently. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many tourist activities and attractions have been closed across the globe, and Six Flags is no different. They have temporarily closed all of their parks, but you’ll soon be able to go on a drive-thru safari at their New Jersey location.
Closing Up Shop
Like many companies, organizations, and attractions across the world, Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey decided to close up shop as the ongoing pandemic raged across the globe. This was for the safety of their staff and the general public, but they want to soon start reopening the park using a phased method to promote social distancing. The first step in this phase will be opening soon, and it involves an epic safari that you can take in your own car.
Going Back to Basics
If you have ever been to Six Flags Great Adventure, you may be familiar with the popular attraction, Safari Off-Road Adventure. When this experience first opened in 1974, it was opened as a self-drive experience to allow visitors to make their own way around the 350-acre reserve and check out the 1,200 wild animals as a family unit. However, that changed in 2013 when Six Flags decided to make it a guided tour and take families around in large groups. Now, they are going back to basics and changing it back to a self-drive tour. This is to provide families with entertainment without them needing to get out of the car, and we think it’s an awesome idea.
If you want to check this drive-thru safari out for yourself, you’ll need to book online in advance.
