Glow in the Park returns to Adventure Park at Long Island

The Adventure Park at Long Island will once again offer its signature nighttime event Glow in the Park on Saturdays through Nov. 4.

Glow in the Park features zip lining and climbing through an illuminated forest and each Glow in the Park event comes with a music theme, from 80s Mixtape to Epic Movie Music. 

Other fall events at the area’s largest zipline and climbing adventure park include its Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Halloween celebrations on the following three Saturdays Oct. 14, Oct. 21 and Oct. 28.

The Iron Squirrel, where guests are challenged to complete all 14 of the park’s courses in a day, takes place on Sunday, Oct. 8. The Eyeball Scavenger Hunt, where guests have to find hidden “eyeballs” to win treats from the park store, will run during regular operating hours from Oct. 13 through Oct. 29.

“The autumn season at The Adventure Park is always a favorite of our guests,” Phil Insalaco, park manager, said in a written statement. “As the weather cools down and the leaves change, it’s a season where the excitement of adventure meets the beauty of nature, making each visit a truly unforgettable experience.”

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 to 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 at Long Island is located on the Henry Kaufmann Campground at 75 Colonial Springs Road in Wheatley Heights.
