First, a great video of the park. It's interesting to see how similar their elephant area was to Great Adventure's:
And sadly, here's a presentation of the abandoned park in November 2007:

You know, it's really a shame Warner Brothers could never commit to their theme parks. First it was Jungle Habitat, which they had even announced they were going to expand into a full fledged theme park and never did (and then ended up closing), then when they bought Six Flags and really turned the parks back into themed experiences, but then lost interest and sold them off.

Safest bet in the world: that a geek snob will find something wrong with something big in the subject of his/her (mostly his) fixation and grouse about it for the rest of his/her life.

I always knew the place was just left abandoned but I thought some type of development might have occurred by now. Just like the castle in Hamburg, this place isn't that far from where I work either. I may never make it back from lunch!

That reminds me, I need to send Phil a message about a fly-over.

I believe that the access roads to and from West Milford/Greenwood Lake were the demise of this park. My Dad tells me of a colleague of his said he waited on line for literally hours, just to get IN, and were even diverted onto the airport's taxi-way/runway because there were too many cars and just not enough parking areas. IMO, the only way that this park could have survived, especially if they were to expand, was if one of the two-lane roads was opened-up to a 4-lane thoroughfare.
I was there once as a child with my Mom and Grandmother, and we did drive thru the Safari. I distinctly remember the bumper to bumper traffic going thru in a HOT, un-airconditioned car. I also got to ride an Elephant and a Camel. Then my buddy and I drove there to explore back in the early 90's, when the huts, buildings and really neat bamboo/stick/whatever bridge was still intact. I only wish I took pictures back then like I do now wherever I go.....
GAcoaster - So, where's that message about the fly-over ???

I wonder if those costumes still exist or if they were ever re-used at GADV when they introduced the Looney Tunes Characters

Did you know anyone with the Lion Country Safari parks at Kings Island in Cincinnati or Kings Dominion in Richmond? I'd guess they were run a little differently since they weren't drive-through.
