Amazing Drive-Thru Experiences in NJ

With the nice weather finally upon us, we are itching to get out. We have loved hiking and exploring nature since the State Parks reopened, but now it’s time to try something new. NJ has been closed for quite awhile which has inspired new and exciting virtual experiences. Now that things are slowly opening up, even more creative experiences are popping up all over the state. In this post, we are excited to share some unique drive thru experiences the entire family can enjoy. Make sure to bookmark it because we will keep adding to the list as more adventures open up!

Drive-Through Safari at Six Flags Great Adventure

Six Flags Great Adventure

It has been almost 20 years since the last time I drove through the Safari at Six Flags Great Adventure, and I cannot wait to share this experience with my kids. Six Flags had changed the experience from a drive-thru to a tour on a bus in 2012; however, due to the need for social distancing, they are going back in time. The safari spreads across 350 acres and is the home to 1200 animals. What a fun educational experience for the entire family! Learn more here

Located in Wantage, Space Farms is a 100 acre zoo with over 500 wild animals including lions, tigers and bears (oh my!). Price and times can be time found on their website.
