Steven Gentile, president and co-owner of L.I. Adventureland, an amusement park on Long Island, talked about making it through the pandemic, reopening, and its newest ride.
After closing its rides in March 2020, Adventureland amusement park in Farmingdale plans to entertain family and friends once again for its 59th season.
Adventureland, the longest-running amusement park on Long Island, will reopen this spring after a year-long, pandemic-induced shutdown, said co-owner Steven Gentile.
Long Island entertainment industry leaders renewed Friday their push for Congress to pass legislation that would bail out businesses struggling to bounce back after being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
An online petition is calling on New York State to allow Adventureland Amusement Park to reopen from the coronavirus shutdown after the Farmingdale business was bumped from phase four of the state's reopening plan.
The park’s owners founded the nonprofit Helping Hands Foundation in 2013 as a way for the Adventureland team to give back to their patrons, have communities come together, and have LI reach its full potential.
