What time is it? Why, “It’s Tiger Time at the Long Island Game Farm,” this year’s new tiger show that will be held on the main stage at the Game Farm’s 500-seat amphitheater. The show runs from Memorial Day weekend (May 23) to Labor Day (September 7).
The show features rare tigers from around the world. Its world-famous tiger-tamers demonstrate how tigers behave naturally, and how he can shape their natural behaviors and impulses into formal tricks and stunts. He has trained the tigers to sit, stay, lick and, ultimately, perform. This educational and entertaining show also stresses conservation of the endangered big cats.
“The annual tiger show has always been one of the Game Farm’s most successful attractions,” said Melinda Novak, Co-Owner and Vice President, Long Island Game Farm. “We find the show to be very entertaining, but very educational as well, as we stress the importance of protecting some of these lions and tigers which are endangered species.”
There are showings twice daily at noon and 3 p.m., and three times each day during weekends and holidays (noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m.).
