Little ones visiting Adventureland in Farmingdale will be able to check out a new ride this summer.

The new helicopter ride replaces the original in Kiddie Land. The upgraded version allows kids to control the height they "fly" their helicopter. It also features Adventureland's mascot, Alfie. Children 54 inches or less can ride the helicopters with or without an adult.
