The animals at a popular New Jersey theme park safari aren't going anywhere.
Six Flags Great Adventure tells The Associated Press it is combining the safari with its amusement and water parks into one attraction that it claims will be the world's largest theme park next year.
The popular drive-thru safari in Jackson Township is ending next month. But guests will be driven through a revamped safari area next year on park-provided vehicles. They'll even be able to pet or hand-feed some of the animals, and can ride a zip line above them for an extra fee.
The park also is adding Big Wave Racer, a massive new water slide ride.
Six Flags says prices will stay the same when the revamped park opens in the spring.
