If you like your animal encounters from the comfort of your own car, we have some bad new for you. New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure has said today that it will be ending the practice of allowing guests to drive their own cars through its animal sanctuary.
Before this announcement, Six Flags guests were permitted to drive personal vehicles through the sanctuary grounds, experiencing the wildlife at their own pace. The new rules will go into effect when the animal sanctuary closes for the season on September 30th.
Six Flags said that the animal sanctuary will remain, as will the animals within it, but future plans for the area will not be available until August 30th. It is expected that the amusement park chain will announce changes at its other locations as well.
