NJ Six Flags Combining Wild Safari Into World's Largest Theme Park

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey said it is combining the wild safari with its amusement and water parks to create an attraction they say will be the world's largest theme park.

The company announced Thursday it will combine its amusement park with a new feature at its Hurricane Harbor water park and the new "Safari Off Road Adventure" — all for the price of one admission.

Next year, guests will be driven through a revamped safari area on park vehicles and be able to pet or hand-feed some of the animals.

The amusement complex is the largest run by Six Flags, which has $1billion in revenue each year from 19 parks across the county.

It's the third largest theme park company in the country, behind Disney and Universal, and is a significant contributor to the New Jersey economy.
