In celebration of its 46th season, the Long Island Game Farm proudly hosted its 1970’s Admission Price Day. On Saturday, July 25, admission prices were rolled back to $2.00 for adults and $1.25 for children, the same prices that were set when the Game Farm first opened.

Thousands of visitors shared memories to the Memory Board of their early visits to the Long Island Game Farm and enjoyed listening to the music from that decade. Children had the opportunity to make their own pet rock and have their faces decorated by Game Farm staffers.

Since its founding in 1970 by Stanley and Diane Novak, the 25-acre Long Island Game Farm has served as a place of education and family entertainment. The Game Farm features interactive animal experiences, in which guests are able to get up close and personal with their favorite animals. This year also features its newest attractions: the Camel Encounter, where guests are able to hand-feed camels and learn fun facts from staff, and the Priceless Parrot Encounter at the Discovery Center. In addition, guests are able to hand-feed the Game Farm’s resident giraffe and bottle-feed baby goats and other nursery animals.
