Fodor's Expert Review Adventureland
Old Bethpage and Farmingdale
This amusement park, operating since 1962, is good family fun, with more than 30 thrill rides, kiddie rides, a ghost house, a couple of water rides, and a large indoor arcade. There is no admission fee, parking is free, and the food—admittedly not gourmet fare—won't cost you an arm and a leg. In summer, go during the week if you want to avoid long lines.
