Adventureland Amusement Park

The Frisbee will spin you around and is a great ride at Adventureland in Farmingdale

If you live on Long Island, you have probably visited Adventureland Amusement Park at least once in your life. You most likely have experienced one of Long Island's biggest attractions either in your youth or have taken your kids there.

Adventureland Amusement Park in Farmingdale, NY, is Long Island's very own fun and entertaining theme park. Although, it's not huge in size like Disneyworld, there is no shortage of fun, games, thrilling rides, and entertainment for the whole family.

The park is located right off of Broadhollow Rd. (Rt. 110). As you pull into the entrance, you will enter a narrow road that runs along the side of the park. There are parking spots along this path, but unless you get to the park when it first opens, you will most likely have to park by the rear entrance. There are plenty of spots.

There are two entrances: you can enter by the rear parking lot or on the side, along the narrow entrance path. The ticket booth is closest to the side entrance.

The front of the park is geared for toddlers and really small kids. There are plenty of rides and the area is extremely family oriented, with friendly ride operators and various vendors selling dipping dots, soda, and candy.

In the very front of the children's area, is a large ferris wheel, suitable for everyone!

Adventureland Amusement Park has many fun rides! My favorites are the Music Express (hold on tight!) and the Hurrican Coaster.

If you like rides that spin you around with many drops, then you should try the Frisbee. You must have a strong stomach to enjoy this ride.

Adventureland has a fun water ride called Adventure Falls to cool you off on a hot day.

As you walk towards the back of the park, you will see all the games where you can win some great prizes.

When you get hungry you can eat at the large cafeteria style food area, where you can buy hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chicken nuggets, french fries, and ice cream.

Candy from Adventureland

The Bavarian Village sells items like candy, fudge, Adventureland memorabilia, clothing, and gift items.

Arcade

Adventureland Amusement Park has a state of the art, air conditioned arcade where you can play games like Guitar Hero and Wheel of Fortune, and jump along to the beat of music.
