Every Wednesday is “Senior Day” at the Long Island Game Farm

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Every Wednesday, senior citizens over the age of 62 will receive free admission to the Long Island Game Farm Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo when accompanied by another person. That person will pay full price while the senior will be admitted free of charge (regularly $16.95 plus tax).

Many senior citizens have made attending the Long Island Game Farm a family tradition. They brought their children to the park when it first opened in 1970. Now, more and more seniors are the ones who bring their grandchildren for a fun and educational experience that the wildlife park offers.

For each visitor who pays full price, one senior citizen will be admitted into the Game Farm for free. For example, if both grandparents come in with two grandchildren, they will get in free and only have to pay the children’s admission price.

As always, the Game Farm will have its petting zoo and exotic animals on display, including giraffes, lemurs, zebras, buffalos and cougars. In addition, visitors can see the new Erik’s Reptile Edventure Discovery Center and this year’s exciting summer show, The One and Only Pekingese Dog Act featuring Vanna the Baboon – presented by David Rosaire. Showtimes are at noon and 3 p.m.

“Kids love our park and with more and more seniors serving as caregivers to their grandchildren, we wanted to give these hardworking seniors a break and an opportunity to do something fun during the middle of the week,” said Melinda Novak, Vice President/Co-Owner, Long Island Game Farm.

Discounts cannot be combined with any other offers or coupons. For more information about the Long Island Game Farm, call (631) 878-6670, or visit www.longislandgamefarm.com.


The Long Island Game Farm was founded in 1970 by Stanley and Diane Novak and is located on 25 acres of land in Manorville.  The Park has grown over the years and has served as a frequent destination of school children that have grown up on Long Island.  Each year, thousands of guests visit the park.
