JACKSON–The Jackson Township Planning Board has granted administrative approval for four new attractions to be located within the property owned by Six Flags, here. An application submitted to the Jackson Township Planning Board reveals a new multi-slide water slide in the company’s Hurricane Harbor water park, a safari ride that starts near the Northern Star Arena and extends into the area formerly referred to as Six Flags Wild Safari, a road through the existing lion enclosure and Camp Ventura, a safari station located within the wild life preserve.
Great Adventure, which closed the drive-through safari park in 2012 will be offering guided tours through the area in 2013. Visitors will board vehicles at a station adjacent to the Northern Star Arena, according to the plans and travel to Camp Ventura.
Amenities at Camp Ventura will include a central pavilion with group tents, food and beverage service, a fire pit, bathrooms, snack stands, giraffe feeding decks and an “iconic direction sign structure”, according to the plans on file at the Jackson Planning Board offices. Camp Ventura will also feature a zip line across the safari and will be located on the far western portion of the park.
At nearby Hurricane Harbor, six intertwining slides, identified as “speed slides” will be installed along the southern portion of the Lazy River.
To build the water slides, the company will have to cut down a total of 120 trees according to the plans.
