After nearly four decades and ten million visitors, you won't be able to drive your car through the Wild Safari at Six Flags Great Adventure after this season.

The Wild Safari at Six Flags Great Adventure is an awesome experience. It allows the average person to get really close to nearly 1,200 wild animals right here in New Jersey.

Sure the animals are really cool, but -- admit it -- watching a monkey rip the mirror off of a car from New York is the best part. And that might have something to do with Six Flags' decision to not allow you to drive your car through the Wild Safari after September 30th.

"Six Flags Wild Safari has been an institution for many families whose first glimpse of exotic animals was with their faces pressed up against a car window. That chapter of our history is now drawing to a close,” said Safari Director and Chief Veterinarian Bill Rives.

Will the safari remain open? Will it remain open with visitors in Six Flags' own safari-touring vehicles? No specific details have been released yet for what the 2013 season holds.
