Beyond the well-manicured lawns, relaxing beaches, shopping malls and movie theaters is an adventurous side of Long Island waiting to be discovered by you and your kids.

Sail through churning rivers, dodge thrashing waves and feel the force of gravity as you fall 8 stories in just 3 seconds. Spin around in a bumper car, take in the view from atop a ferris wheel and fight your way to the top of a rock wall. Before long, you may even experience that rare magical moment when all of your kids are having fun at the exact same time.
