Drive-through animal parks are a popular family destination, but after watching this video you may want a tune-up before you take your next vehicular safari.

A young mother and her two children were touring the lion’s section of a safari park when their car began to smoke and then catch on fire. As flames rose above the hood, the family fled the car, but park officials yelled to them to return to the burning car. Daniel Xu’s post on The Outdoor Hub tells the rest of the story.

Would you have sought refuge in the car, or taken your chances with those big cats? Sound off in the comments section below.
