Glow in the Park returns to fall lineup at Adventure Park

The Adventure Park at Long Island will once again offer Glow in the Park, on Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 5.

Glow in the Park is a unique way to experience the park with ziplining and climbing through an illuminated forest to high energy music. Each Glow in the Park event has its own theme, including the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, country, top 40 and movie themes.

Next month, Adventure Park is also offering autumn-themed events. Its Fall Festival is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct. 8. The park celebrates Halloween on Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15; Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct. 22; and Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29.

“Fall is a wonderful time to visit The Adventure Park,” Phil Inslaco, the park manager, said in a written statement. “The leaves are changing, and the air is crisp… there’s no better way to experience the feeling of autumn on Long Island.”

The 14 trails at The Adventure Park consist of various challenges in the trees, including bridges, tightropes, ladders, and 49 ziplines. Participants wear harnesses with clips that connect to the trail’s safety system, ensuring that they are always locked on to the course until they reach the end. The main trails are designed for ages 7 to adult, and an Adventure Playground provides a low-to-the-ground adventure experience for little climbers ages 3-6.

Non-climbing participants are admitted free of charge to share the experience on the ground and enjoy the property’s nature trails, picnic tables and community fire pit.

The Adventure Park is located in the Henry Kaufmann Campground at 75 Colonial Springs Road in Wheatley Heights.
