The Long Island Game Farm will be going into hibernation on Tuesday, October 13, but the animals aren’t going anywhere just yet. Instead, the zoo has increased its Facebook coupon to $4 off admission and has updated its fall hours and show schedule for the remainder of the season.
At the largest combined Children’s Zoo and Wildlife Park on Long Island, guests can see hundreds of animals and get up close and personal with some of their favorite exotic critters.
Visitors to the free Leapin’ Lemur Tour at Lemur Circle will have the opportunity to learn about these creatures, which hail from the African sub-continent. Each day, an animal expert from the Game Farm will discuss the lemurs’ habitat, what they eat and how they communicate. Park attendees are also invited to visit the Zebra, Cougar and Giraffe exhibits to learn some fun facts about these furry friends.
Guests can additionally receive a one-on-one Camel Encounter with a zookeeper and the park’s very own camels, Sandy and Sahara. During this event, guests can feed the camels a healthy snack and take photos with them. The Animal Education staff will be there to answer any questions and to share interesting facts about these “ships of the desert.” Tickets can be purchased at the Encounter or from the souvenir stand for $5.
The Game Farm will be open on the following days:
- September 10 to 15 (Thursday to Tuesday)
- September 17 to 20 (Thursday to Sunday)
