Long Island’s FLIGHT is taking off again, this weekend.
The indoor adventure park has reimagined its 26,000-square-foot space in Ronkonkoma, revamping, expanding and shifting to an aviation and space exploration theme. Fittingly, former NASA Astronaut Capt. Robert “Hoot” Gibson will be on hand for a grand reopening event on Dec. 1.
The Ronkonkoma location’s transformation includes revamped attractions specifically dedicated to the theme of human flight, spanning air and space adventures. The retrofitted attractions include bailing out of an “aircraft” into a giant airbag, hopping from planet to planet, climbing through a shuttle, and descending an evacuation slide inside the site’s Lunar Park — an expansive 1,900-square-foot inflatapark.
The Lunar Sports Court, where guests can engage in activities like slam dunking and dodgeball, is also an added feature.
FLIGHT’s birthday party rooms have also undergone extensive renovations, and now include aircraft, spacecraft and helicopters.
“At FLIGHT, we aim to always inspire imagination and adventure that transcends beyond just our parks,” said Steven L. Yeffa, CEO of Flight. “This exact mindset has been the inspiration behind these retrofit operations, and we are thrilled to officially welcome our customers to our Ronkonkoma location to experience this re-imagination firsthand.”
FLIGHT officials said the Ronkonkoma location’s redesign aligns with the adventure park chain’s broader strategy to redefine the customer experience across its network of parks nationwide and in Canada.
