BounceU was voted Best Family Amusement Place on Long Island for 2011. The indoor inflatable play center is hit with the kids, with open sessions that allow them to bounce the day away. BounceU is also a birthday party favorite, as the friendly staff provides the food and cleanup while kids enjoy a private bounce room. In addition, programs and camps are offered to help promote mental and physical stimulation, giving parents one more reason to pack the kids up and head to BounceU!

Known as “Long Island’s Amusement Park,” Adventureland offers great thrill rides (the Hurricane roller coaster is a personal favorite), a plethora of arcade games and kiddie rides that will have children yelling with delight. There is no better sign of summer’s arrival then watching the ferris wheel go as you drive on Rt. 110.
3. Splish Splash
2549 Splish Splash Dr., Calverton. 631-727-3600. www.splishsplashlongisland.com
Summers on Long Island are hot. Sometimes very hot. But even in the heat, Long Islanders want to have fun. For thrill seekers, Splish Splash is the perfect answer. Want to drop 40 feet? Lounge in the lazy river? Weave through winding, fast water slides? Then put on your bathing suit and head on over!
