Adventureland Theme Park

Adventureland is an amusement park in Farmingdale, New York. As Long Island become more populated and more housing developments were starting, a source of entertainment was needed.

Many kiddielands were popping up throughout Long Island. Two people who were big in the industry were Alvin Cohen and Herb Budin. After visiting a trade show in Chicago, they acquired a 6-acre (24,000 m2) site on Route 110 in Farmingdale, New York. First the team of two constructed a building which housed a restaurant and arcade so the park could be open year round. Along with the building, four rides opened outside: a Carousel, train, Little Dipper coaster, Card, and boats. There was also a mini golf course. In 1962, the 1 million dollar park opened under the name of Adventureland 110 Playland. As the park success went up, the name of the park was changed to 110 Adventureland.

Adventureland features 30 rides and attractions especially for kids and their parents. The park has two pay-one-price (P.O.P.) sessions, If you are Under 48” – P.O.P. is $17.95.
If you are Over 48” – P.O.P. is $22.95.

You may also purchase single tickets for rides. Tickets are 80 cents each, and the rides require 3-5 single tickets per ride, per rider. Adventureland operates April through October.
