Part of the original services offered in the Safari Hospitality Center was the Park-A-Pet kennel facilities. The kennels offered a place for guests to board up to 80 animals while they enjoyed the park. This service was used primarily by vacationers in motor homes who often travel with their dogs.  Originally the facility was simply named "Kennels" but it was changed to Park-A-Pet when the theme park introduced the Pet-A-Pet petting zoo.

The Park-A-Pet building was demolished  during the 2004 season in order to build Kingda Ka. The pet boarding facilities were transferred to the Safari Hut restaurant facility which had been unused for some time.
