Where are we going today?

Kids, do you love animals? Yes? Well, do you love interacting with animals, and getting face to face with some of your favorite species? How about those tall giraffes, or those cheeky lemurs?

At Long Island Game Farm Wildlife and Children's Zoo, it's ALL about giving families those amazing animal encounters, and we're excited!

This animal-tastic experience is the largest combined children's zoo and wildlife park on Long Island, and it's where you can see animals in natural environments, learn all about them, and enjoy hands-on fun too!

There are hundreds of animals within Long Island Game Farm Wildlife and Children's Zoo! How about checking out that 18ft giraffe, or their various breeds of monkeys? Have you ever seen a Barbados sheep, or been close to those bouncing red kangaroos?

There are beautiful birds too, and some truly exotic creatures like the zebra and ostrich! Don't miss those closer to home either, including the buffalo and the alligators!

We told you this animal experience had hands-on encounters, and you just have to head to "Old MacDonadld's Farmyard" to see for yourself! Here, you can pet, bottle feed and cuddle those cute baby animals. It's also here that ponies, ducks, pigs, chickens, and other cute domestic animals are within reach!

Did we mention the rides too? How exciting! There are carnival-style attractions including the Spinning Teacups, that classic Antique Carousel and the popular Grande Mini Train - and there are even pony rides too!

Is that almost TOO much family fun at Long Island Game Farm Wildlife and Children's Zoo?  Nah, of course not - so let's go!

    I went today, with the whole family ! I fed the giraffe aka Clifford is awesome. And went on a few rides and I saw Erik's show. And the dog show with the monkey ! So fun we saw all the animals you could think of... From the safari,jungle and farms and the dessert islands. I think you should visit this place. It is good for all people and families. They let you feed the animals ! Too.

    I just spent the day here today and found the place not the same as the last time I was here. (15 or 20 yrs ago) This game farm needs severe updating, there are few less animals and the cages need to be either upgraded or changed. I liked the Llamas and sheep. This is a great place to bring children to 4 to 10 yrs old. I see how children's eyes light up being able to feed the animals and interact (isn't that what these places are for?.. teaching children about the wonders of the wild animal world.

    However, the park seems to be in disarray, to me...Read More

    My children and ourselves had a great time here. you can pet the deer/goats/lamas etc, also go on pony rides for $5. The rides are cute. This is a place for small children, everything is worthwhile when you see their eyes light up and those big smiles on their faces.

(15 or 20 yrs ago) This game farm needs severe updating, there are few less animals and the cages need to be either upgraded or changed. I liked the Llamas and sheep. This is a great place to bring children to 4 to 10 yrs old. I see how children's eyes light up being able to feed the animals and interact (isn't that what these places are for?.. teaching children about the wonders of the wild animal world.

However, the park seems to be in disarray, to me and my guest, it seems as if the park itself is being neglected (there are so many unused cages that nature took back (with over growth of fauna and foliage)
The park is not at all pristine or upgraded, there are fewer animals then previous years, not sure why this is. My guest and I noticed cages (or what used to be enclosures that were competly emptied and totally over grown one was a concrete circle that used to have a iron cage on top (but the cage is no longer on it, just has the iron rods in a circle) It looks like the owners no longer want to run this game farm, surprisingly the Long Island game farm rescued the Mountain Lion from the now "closed" Catskill Game farm (that was the best game farm in the state of NY, bar none)

This game farm needs a severe face lift, upgrading the facility to bring it into the tech world and increasing the amount of wild animals ( like including black bears, like the Catskill Game farm, since they closed according to the fact that they were advised to upgrade their game farm but the cost was beyond what they could afford to do it.. and with low attendance and growing overhead costs they closed I fear this Long Island Game Farm is going to be the next one to go, if nothing is done rt

The visit at the Long Island Game Farm today (44th year anniversay 2013) and compared to my last visit to the Catskill Game Farm (summer of 2006) the Catskill game farm in its last few months of operation was much more fun then the Long Island Game farm today,

But it's still a great place to bring smaller children. There is also a new petting zoo just a few miles from the game farm that is a little cheaper, but expanding it's facility yearly and could surpass the game farm,
