Nighttime Ride on Serengeti Flyer

We had the opportunity to ride Serengeti Flyer during the day and night during annual pass exclusive ride times. It is a really good ride at any time of the day and we suggest riding it on both sides and in the day and night times to see which you prefer. It is very smooth and will lift out of your seats at points throughout the ride.
