JACKSON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WABC) -- Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey is returning to an old practice to adjust to limitations created by the coronavirus pandemic.

Six Flags' Safari park is going back to a 'self-drive-through' experience.

That's how people used to view the animals from 1974 to 2012. But beginning in 2013, guests were loaded into shuttles and toured the park with a guide.

The return to the old way will allow visitors to view 1,200 exotic animals from the safety of their own vehicle.

Guests will have to book a reservation online for the experience which begins on May 30.

As part of safety measures at the park, no buses or campers can come in.

Visitors cannot feed or touch the animals.

Park workers will wear masks and gloves and undergo health screenings.
