Jungle Habitat is one of the first big zoos to be established in NJ. It almost could be considered a precursor to Great Adventure's Safari, since it was owned by Warner Brothers, the same folks that own Six Flags.
The park opened in summer 1972, and within a few months was the subject of controversy as a tourist was mauled by lions after opening his car window, and local residents reported animals that had escaped. There were also reports of animal mistreatment and after 4 years, the park closed.
