The Zoo Once Again Hosts End-of-Season Scavenger Hunt Event, Encourages all Attendees 
to Don their Favorite Ball Gowns/Tuxedos and Swashbuckling Garb

(Manorville, New York) — In honor of the end of its season – and the long Columbus Day Weekend, the Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo is hosting its second annual Pirates and Princesses Treasure Hunt Sunday, October 9, 2016 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. During the event, children will be treated to a scavenger hunt around the park, which will culminate in a bounty of snacks and prizes and a meet-and-greet with the Long Island Game Farm’s own pirate and princess. 

All children will receive a pirate map with clues to specially marked destinations around the park. Upon solving each clue, participants should visit that location and have their special treasure map stamped by one of our zookeepers or Long Island Game Farm staff. Once a participant earns five stamps, they should journey along to the place where X marks the spot in order to claim their prize as well as cookie and juice treats.

Though guests are encouraged to wear outfits inspired by the event (be it a princess-style ball gown, a prince-style suit or your favorite pirate attire), costumes are not required to participate. Additionally, while general admission is required to enter the park, there is no additional cost to join the event.

“The Pirates and Princesses Treasure Hunt was the perfect ending to our season last year,” says Melinda Novak, Vice President/Co-Owner, Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo. “Though we will continue to be open for a few more days post-event, we are looking forward to hosting all buccaneers and having them celebrate the end of 2016 with us!  It’s a great way for families to spend an afternoon.”

The Long Island Game Farm features interactive animal experiences, where guests can get up-close and personal with their favorite animals. New to the Game Farm this year was the Giraffe Encounter, where guests hand-fed the park’s resident giraffe, Clifford, and learned fun facts from the staff. In addition to Clifford, guests once again had the chance to hand-feed the LIGF’s camels, which this year feature a new addition and naming contest, and bottle-feed goats and other baby animals in the nursery.

The Long Island Game Farm – Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo is open through October 12, 2016, after which time it will close for the season. The park will reopen in May 2017. For more information on shows, prices or activities please visit or call

The Long Island Game Farm was founded in 1970 by Stanley and Diane Novak and is located on 25 acres of land in Manorville.  The Park has grown over the years and has served as a frequent destination of school children that have grown up on Long Island.  Each year, thousands of guests visit the park.
