Adventureland in Farmingdale is Long Island’s longest-running amusement park.

After closing its rides in March 2020, Adventureland amusement park in Farmingdale plans to entertain family and friends once again for its 59th season. 

Although the park is slated to open to the public on April 10, season pass holders can enjoy the rides a day earlier, from 3 to 9 p.m. Adventureland will be open weekends and holidays throughout the spring and daily in the summer, and admission must be purchased in advance through their website

“WE ARE BACK and we are SO excited to see everyone again this season!!! Opening day cannot come soon enough,” the Adventureland team shared in a Facebook post earlier this month.

All admission prices include unlimited use of the rides. General admission is $39.99 and $24.99 for adults ages 25 and up. Admission is free for children one and under.

With more than 30 rides and attractions, Adventureland has revealed some new ones just in time for the season, including the 60-foot Sports Tower. New arcade games like Pearl Fishery and Connect Four Basketball test players’ skills to win big points. Midway game, Alfie’s Glo-Up, is also making its debut. In addition to rides, park-goers can have their pictures taken with a special superhero and his two royal friends on reopening day.

Co-owner and managing partner of Adventureland, Steve Gentile stated back in November that the company had to pivot and adjust to many changes caused by the coronavirus. Recently, Gentile reaffirmed that he is prepared to implement these changes and restrictions starting this year. 

In accordance with New York State guidelines, the park has put measures in places to ensure the safety of all park-goers. The outdoor venue will operate at 33 percent capacity with 50 sanitizing stations located throughout the park. Social distancing will be required on lines, as well rides, and face masks are mandatory for all guests ages two and older.
