LIGF Offers Low-Cost Admission for Second Annual 1970s Admission Price Day

Retired Firefighter Builds Hammock for Long Island Game Farm’s Gibbons

When The Long Island Game Farm – Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo first opened 46 years ago, life on Long Island was much easier and cost-effective. Houses sold for an average of $30,000; milk was $1.15 per gallon and gas was a mere 36 cents per gallon. In an ode to the simple life of yesteryear, the Long Island Game Farm (LIGF) is proud to once again present its 1970s Admission Price Day, on Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Celebrate the past with the Long Island Game Farm, located at 489 Chapman Boulevard in Manorville, New York, with tickets that cost $3.90 for adults and $1.95 for children, reflective of prices the park charged in the 70s. Please note: Prices do not include tax and are not compatible with coupons or discounts. 1970 prices apply only to general admission. Ride and encounter tickets, food and souvenirs will all be priced at 2016 standards.
The Long Island Game Farm, founded in 1970 by Stanley and Diane Novak, has been serving as a place of education and family fun for 47 seasons. Guests are encouraged to bring in past photos at the Game Farm and share their favorite memories. There will also be free face painting and make-your-own pet rock station available.
“The Long Island Game Farm has been the ideal destination for generations of families for nearly 50 years,” says Melinda Novak, Co-Owner/Vice President, Long Island Game Farm. “Those who first came to the Game Farm in the 1970s are now bringing their children and grandchildren to experience our beloved zoo. The Game Farm leaves a mark on family memories that is sure to be looked back on fondly, for years to come.”
The Long Island Game Farm features interactive animal experiences, where guests can get up-close and personal with their favorite animals. Guests can hand-feed LIGF’s resident giraffe Clifford at the Giraffe Encounter, see our pack of camels at the Camel Encounter and bottle-feed goats and other baby animals in the nursery.
Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s First Annual 1970s Day, we advise everyone who wishes to attend to arrive early. Parking is limited, so we strongly recommend that friends and family carpool to the event. For more information, please call (631) 878-6644 or visit
