After Hurricane Irma: Lion Country Safari to reopen Thursday


Lion Country Safari is set to reopen Thursday after being closed for Hurricane Irma. And for two days, the park is cutting entry fees.

The park will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with ticket booths closing at 4 p.m., Lion Country said in a news release. The four-mile preserve drive and park of the park — giraffe feeding, paddle boats, mini golf and sprayground — will be open. 

For Thursday and Friday, admission will be $10 plus tax per person. The park said it hopes to resume full operations Saturday.

Bonus: The Post went out early on Thursday to catch the park’s rhinos emerging from their night facilities for the first time since Irma. Get a close look on our Facebook Live:
