Empire Adventure Park is set top in Samanea Mall
Empire Adventure Park is set to open later this year and bring 36,000-square-feet of fun to the action-packed mall.

Empire Adventure Park will span nearly 36,000 square feet and feature trampolines, laser tag, dodgeball, ninja obstacle courses, a ropes course, climbing walls, a variety of augmented-reality games, and more. But wait, there's more, including a Hyperdeck virtual reality, Hologate virtual reality, toddler area, multi-ball pit, soft play with air cannons, an e-sports lounge, a parents lounge (cue respite noise!), and private party rooms. This list alone should have kiddos jumping at the thought! The entrance will be on the second floor of the mall, as well as from the rear of the property. Construction has just begun, with an expected opening date in late 2022.

The Gravity Vault is set to open in Long Island Samanea Mall
The Gravity Vault location at Samanea is the second Long Island venue for the climbing chain.

The Gravity Vault location at Samanea will boast double the amount of bouldering terrain of Gravity’s existing site in Melville. Samanea's 18,000 square feet includes short walls that can be climbed without harnesses or ropes. The rock-climbing gym will feature more than 300 climbing routes at any one time and include wall heights that extend to 45 feet, with views out across Long Island. What will you spy from way up high? Don't worry, an instructor is connected to you via hoisting ropes to prevent falls. There's also a pro shop store for rock climbing gear and birthday party options if you want to rock your special day.  

Other tenants include Bloomingdale’s Furniture Outlet, Dave & Buster’s, The Cheesecake Factory, Fortunoff Backyard Store, 99 Ranch Supermarket, Empire Adventure Park, Gravity Vault, MyPlanet Living Center, Arteco Cabinetry, X-Golf, Let’s Craft, K-Pot Korean BBQ, Szechuan Restaurant, MoCa Asian Bistro, Frank & Camille’s West Pianos, Leon Banilivi Rugs, and Leonardo Furniture.
