Adventure Park Wheatley Heights at Long Island. There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park at Long Island! Within seven beautiful acres of woodland you will find our amazing “aerial forest park.” Come to the Adventure Park to experience “adventure in the trees” on your own or with friends, family and parties. Ages seven to adult.
Located in Wheatley Heights, NY on five spectacular wooded acres of the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds, The Adventure Park at Long Island is the area’s most exciting new attraction. The Adventure Park appeals to outdoor fun-seekers age 7 through adult and features multiple zip lines and aerial ropes challenge courses.
The Adventure Park at Long Island consists of eight different “ropes courses” or trails through the trees, of varying challenge levels, from introductory to advanced. The self-guided trails do not require previous climbing experience. After receiving a safety briefing and harness, each climber selects a trail at their comfort level and then proceeds to navigate its different “bridges” or “elements” moving from tree platform to tree platform. The trails include zip lines as well.
Climbers proceed at their own pace and each trail requires anywhere from approximately 15 – 30 minutes to complete. Upon completion of one trail the visitor may again ascend the starting platform and select another trail. A climbing ticket entitles the visitor to unlimited climbs during a three-hour period. Park staff members are continually on-site and available for assistance or questions.
All climbers wear safety harnesses that employ “double-clipped-on” technology to help keep the climber continuously connected to a safety cable throughout their time in the trees. The trails are designed for ages seven and older, with appropriate challenges suited for kids, teens and adults.

Fun Things To Do With Your Kids On Long Island
Growing up on Long Island, many children enjoy spending time at the beach, but since kids tend to get bored quickly, they often look for new and exciting things to do.
For parents, keeping their kids entertained—and not by just letting them waste their days playing video games or watching TV—can be a full-time job.
But since parents and kids often disagree about what constitutes fun, here are some ideas for family friendly things to do on Long Island.
PET, FEED AND SEE THE ANIMALS
It’s a rare kid who doesn’t like going to the zoo. Although Long Island doesn’t have a full-fledged zoo, it offers petting zoos, fish hatcheries and an aquarium. Here are seven:
1. Long Island Aquarium
This aquarium is home to many fascinating living things and awesome attractions. Among these are the Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit, which lets visitors dive into the tank and swim with the sharks with the protection of a steel shark cage. Visitors can also see penguins, seals, gators, sting rays, sea lions and other marine wildlife. 431 Main St., Riverhead.
2. White Post Farms
This warm and welcoming farm in Huntington has been around for more than 130 years. White Post Farms is as kid-friendly as it can be. Whether bouncing on the bouncy castle or petting zebras at the petting zoo (yes, they have zebras), riding a pony or experiencing the action-packed bird sanctuary, there’s no shortage of fun. They also have a mini-train, tiny houses for kids to play in and, of course, a farm stand. 250 Old Country Rd., Melville.
3. Long Island Animal Farm Petting Zoo
From petting zoo animals such as goats and pigs to watching more exotic creatures such as monkeys and cougars, this petting zoo has almost anything a child could dream of for a day of animal-filled fun. There’s even a puppet theater, a picnic area and a playground. 296 Wading River Rd., Manorville.
4. Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery
Children of all ages will love these outdoor exhibits such as fish ponds, turtle ponds and trout pools. The hatchery is also home to an aquarium that contains more than 30 different species of fish. They regularly host various educational programs for kids. 1660 Route 25A, Cold Spring Harbor.
5. Jungle Bob’s Reptile World
As the name suggests, Jungle Bob’s Reptile World is far and away one of the most fascinating places on Long Island. The shop is the largest reptile-only pet store in New York with more than 100 animals on display. Jungle Bob’s is also a worthwhile destination for kids to spend some time because it boasts an outdoor educational nature center. Jungle Bob invites Long Islanders of all ages to come and learn about reptiles of all shapes and sizes. 2536 Middle Country Rd., Centereach.
6. Holtsville Wildlife and Ecology Center
Home to bears, foxes, bald eagles and more, the Holtsville Wildlife and Ecology Center offers visitors the chance to see animals that cannot be found anywhere else on Long Island. At the center there are gardens, pools and picnic grounds. 249 Buckley Rd., Holtsville,.
7. Seal Tours
It’s one thing to see animals in a zoo, but it’s quite another to see them in their own habitat. Many people may not realize that the waters surrounding Long Island are full of marine life, including seals. Several groups offer tours of local seal hot spots around our shores where seals congregate. Here are a few outfits that offer seal tours on foot and by boat: Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island, Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation and Captain Lou Fleet.
A staple of Long Island entertainment for decades, Adventureland still stands as one of the top attractions in our area. They have rides and roller coasters big and small, dozens of games as well as an arcade. Open spring through fall. 2245 Broad Hollow Rd., Farmingdale.
