Since 1962, Adventureland has been entertaining and thrilling the Long Island community. The park was constructed in a rural area of Suffolk County around the time of a suburban boom eastward on Long Island, which brought enormous population growth in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Since its opening, the park has seen significant change, with numerous rides and attractions being moved or retired to make way for newer attractions. Published here are images of the park throughout its entire history, many of which have never been seen by the public before. Adventureland shares early lost attractions and retired fan favorites in full living color, allowing both the young and the young at heart to remember the park in all of its stages, from opening to today.
