About this T-Shirt

Jungle Habitat, located in West Milford, New Jersey, was a Warner Brothers-owned theme park that opened in the summer of 1972, and closed in October 1976. By November 1972, the park had 500,000 paid visitors. The park contained well over 1,500 animals, a drive-through section and a walk-through section.

The park opened as usual during the summer of 1976, with rumors of a big expansion planned for the summer of 1977. The park’s last weekend in operation was Halloween weekend, 1976. On November 2, 1976, township residents narrowly voted against the expansion. Once this proposal was voted down, Warner Brothers decided to shut the park down and sell the land. After the park closed, newspapers reported that several animal carcasses, including an elephant, had been left there to decay.3 Competition from Great Adventure, combined with poor management and the park’s inability to easily expand, may have contributed to the demise of Jungle Habitat.

For years after it closed, the site’s deteriorated buildings remained, and rumors of animals still roaming the property attracted curiosity seekers.
