Six Flags Great Adventure to reopen drive-thru safari in NJ

Six Flags Great Adventure park has announced it will reopen imminently — for the Safari Off Road Adventure only, CBS New York reports.

The 350-acre attraction in Jackson, NJ, features some 1,200 exotic animals.

The decision to start up again came after Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order on Wednesday allowing drive-thru venues to resume operations.

Six Flags did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment about an opening date.

Featuring wild creatures from six continents — including elephants, rhinos, tigers, giraffes and lions —the Safari Off Road attraction is hyped as “an exhilarating, interactive animal adventure” on the Six Flags’ website.

Meanwhile, the theme park still has the following statement posted on the site: “Following local and regional COVID-19 health directives, we will open as soon as it is safe to do so. While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at the properties, the safety of our guests, team members, and animals is always our highest priority. We will continue to closely monitor this evolving situation, and follow the most current guidance from federal, state, and local officials.”

“For current 2020 Season Pass Holders, passes will be extended for the number of operating days the park is temporarily closed,” spokeswoman Kristin Fitzgerald previously announced. “Six Flags Great Adventure Members will receive a month for each month that the park is closed, plus a free Membership level upgrade for the rest of the 2020 Season and other bonus benefits, as applicable.”
