In The Spotlight:
While there was only one new ride added in 1977 (which was actually a very old ride), changes were happening all over the park. A really big change happened behind the scenes which would change everything for the park's future. 

In The Spotlight:
Great Adventure's Safari Park has been the "World's Largest Drive-Through Safari Outside of Africa" since opening in 1974 featuring dozens of species and hundreds of animals freely roaming the 450 acre site.  
The Safari was as big a draw as the theme park initially and many of the animals that today are considered too dangerous were free to walk up to and sometimes onto the passing vehicles.
