Jungle Habitat- the Maze
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a Weird New Jersey cache. For related information, visit weirdnj.com.and click on the links.Jungle Habitat closed in the late 1970s, but the legend lives on. It only recently re-opened as a State Park, and while evidence of making it more hiker-friendly are clear, it is still a green, twisty, buggy, maze. Criss-cross roads and fences everywhere, many topped with barbed wire, add to the general weirdness of the place. Park at the entrance near the airport. The remains of the orginal sign are still there. There is an opening in the fence, so proceed on through. You would be wise to program the coordinates for your car, because this is not a place you want to be wandering around for a long time. Especially not after dark.Joek remembers this as a drive-through attraction, where wild animals came up to your car. You had to keep your windows shut, for obvious reasons, which, in the days before everyone had air conditioning, may have precipitated the closure of this former Warner Brothers park.That and the reports of errant wild animals scaring housewives in the nearby urban areas explain its demise as atourist atraction.Even now, a certain feral odor clings to the site, and it is not hard to imagine lurking shapes in the darkness of the overgrowth. You may not need safari gear, but bring that bug repellant.
