Interested in animals? Have you been to the Bronx Zoo lately? Grab your total experience ticket here and save about $10 per ticket before heading to the Bronx. How about the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead? With admission to the Butterflies, Bugs, and Birds exhibit included, there’s a whole lot more to see here than just what’s under the water. And let’s not forget about the Long Island Game Farm. Join in the fun and celebrate the parks’ 50th Season this year! Catch a viewing of “Squak! the amazing bird show” included with park admission.
How about visiting a National Historic Landmark and the largest botanical garden in any city in the United States? The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is all that and more! The All Garden Pass ticket sold here at the library gets you access to: Current Garden Exhibitions, the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, Native Plant Garden, Tram Tour, and more. Just to note- our tickets are $15 each for those 12 and over. For anyone ages 2-12 tickets are cheaper at the gate ($12).
Ready for a day of play? Grab some tickets for Boomers or Country Fair Amusement Parks. Both are located in Medford, on the South Service Road of the LIE and Route 112 respectively. The Champ Pass from Boomers offers all day unlimited go-karts, mini-golf, bumper boats, and kiddie rides. Be sure to check their park hours on their website to get the most out of your pass. Country Fair’s 3 Attraction ticket gives guests their choice of: bumper cars, go-karts, outdoor laser tag, mini-golf, batting cage (45 pitches), or golf driving range (40 Balls). You can even double or triple your favorite if you so choose. Be sure to arrive in the correct footwear as park rules state: “No flip-flops are permitted on the go-karts.”
When the heat of summer is on nothing beats cooling off at a water park! Splish Splash, Long Island’s Best Family Water Park, opens weekends starting May 25th! Our stock of tickets are here. Just stop by our main desk to purchase. One thing to remember is they charge by height, not age, so if your little one is over 48″ Great! They can ride it all, but they will need the higher priced ticket. ($37 Over 48″, $30 Under 48″) You’ll still save about $10 per ticket so be sure to stop in before heading out to the park.
Our discount tickets are valid only for season of purchase with the exception of The Long Island Aquarium. Their tickets never expire! How great is that? For the most part children under two get in free however we suggest double checking with the venue if you have questions. All tickets are available while supplies last and can be purchased by anyone via cash or charge at the main desk of the library. Sorry, no refunds.
We love to hear about all the fun you have so be sure to share it with us in person, or on our social media pages.
