One Last Hurrah at Long Island Game Farm’s Back-to-School Blast

Thursday, August 20, 2015

Summer is winding down and so are the August 29 admission prices at the Long Island Game Farm - Wildlife Park & Children's Zoo's Back to School Blast. General admission for the park, located at 489 Chapman Blvd. in Manorville, New York, is being reduced to $5 (plus tax) for adults and children.

During the event, the Game Farm is offering free face painting and back-to-school giveaways, including notebooks from Staples for the first 100 guests. The park's friends at Tanger Outlets in Riverhead are also providing a chance at a $100 shopping spree and coupon books for all attendees. With the mall just over 10 minutes away, it’s a great excuse to stop by both locations during your trip.

“Back-to-school shopping can be a stressful and expensive time for families,” says Melinda Novak, Co-Owner/Vice President, Long Island Game Farm. “The Long Island Game Farm is proud to offer an inexpensive day of fun that will provide a break from that stress. We’re excited to partner with Tanger Outlets and Staples to alleviate some of that financial burden associated with back-to-school shopping.”

The Long Island Game Farm features interactive animal experiences, where guests can get up-close and personal with their favorite animals. New to the Game Farm this year is the Camel Encounter, where guests can hand-feed the camels and learn fun facts from the staff. In addition to camels, guests can hand-feed the LIGF's resident giraffe, and bottle-feed goats and other baby animals in the nursery.
