SPLI’s 3rd Anniversary is fast approaching! In past years we’ve celebrated with big Pokemon parties and tournaments, but this year we wanted to try something different. It’s quite clear that Long Island gamers are fabulous cosplayers, and since our cosplay events are always so much fun we decided to turn our group’s anniversary into a cosplay party! We’re calling our event “Nintendoland at Adventureland” because we plan on invading Long Island’s favorite amusement park in full Nintendo-themed cosplay!
Like Mario? Luigi? Metroid? Legend of Zelda? Pikmin? Wear your favorite costume to Adventureland and go on fun rides with your fellow cosplayers and Nintendo enthusiasts! We’ll be taking tons of photos, so bring your friends too! Just keep in mind that some costumes and props are NOT well suited for amusement park rides, so keep the safety of yourself and others in mind when choosing your cosplay. Also remember that weapon props will not be allowed in the park, so don’t bring that sort of thing please! If you have a specific question, please contact SPLI directly.
DATE: Saturday, August 15th / Rain Date – August 16th
TIME: 1PM – 6PM (or later depending on how it goes!)
WHERE: Adventureland – 2245 Broadhollow Rd., Farmingdale, New York 11735
PRICE: Free to Enter. Tickets must be purchased to go on amusement park rides. There is a Pay One Price option for unlimited rides for those who are interested.
Adventureland is open to the public, and most people in the park will not be expecting to see cosplayers running around. Please dress in family-friendly costumes! Please don’t be rude to random people in the park. People might try to take photos of you, if you are not OK with this, please reconsider your cosplay.
If your costume includes a hat or props, please be sure to secure them before going on rides! Neither SPLI nor Adventureland is responsible for your cosplay props.
You are not required to stay with the group. If you want to branch out and go on rides on your own with your friends, that’s totally fine!
While the park is free to enter, please bring money if you plan on doing anything more than sit around. SPLI cannot pay for your tickets or food/drinks.
Cosplay is NOT REQUIRED. You can wear whatever you want! But Nintendo costumes, t-shirts, etc. are recommended for optimal fun!
Bring your 3DS for StreetPasses! That’s what we’re all about!
We are planning to meet up at 1PM at the front of the parking lot where you buy tickets. We will go into the park together as a group and take some photos. If you need to arrive late, you can come anytime. It shouldn’t be too hard to find the rest of the group members!

Pokemon X&Y Tournament: Prepare yourself for the upcoming official PVGC tournaments by battling your fellow SPLI members! We will be using the official tournament rules set forth by The Pokemon Company: Doubles Standard Format. Please remember that all Pokemon entered in this tournament must be Kalos Native (meaning it must be a Pokemon that was hatched or caught in the Kalos region. You can tell if your Pokemon is Kalos Native if there is a blue pentagon on their Pokemon details screen.) but they can be from the National Pokedex. The winner of the tournament will win a shiny competitive-ready (perfect IV’s, ability, nature, etc.) in-game Pokemon and a perler bead Pokemon prize! As usual, the final round will be broadcast on our big display monitor for everyone to see!
Pokemon X&Y PR Video Contest: Have you created the coolest Pokemon X&Y PR Video for your trainer character? We will be hosting a PR Video Contest and whoever has the best video will win a great prize! Show off your style, video editing, favorite Pokemon, or whatever you want! All videos will be broadcast on our big screen display monitor for all attendees to see, and we will vote by applause to determine the winner.
Pokemon Rumble U Freeplay: Throughout the event, we will be hosting Pokemon Rumble U on the Wii U for SPLI members to play. Bring down your Pokemon NFC figures to trade with other members too! StreetPass Long Island even has some NFC’s to give away during the event, so you won’t want to miss it!
Pokedex 3D Pro Quizzes: For those who want to show off their Pokemon knowledge, we will switch back and forth from Rumble U to Pokedex 3D Pro, and offer prizes for the winners! We have some great prizes thanks to donations from SPLI members.
Pokemon TCG fans are welcome to bring their decks and battle each other! Note: Since SPLI is exclusively a Nintendo video-game based group, we aren’t hosting an official TCG tournament, but Empire Gaming manager Joe has all of the info for upcoming TCG League games! You can also pick up new X&Y TCG packs at Empire Gaming!
StreetPass Long Island is celebrating our First Anniversary! Join us as we host a party to honor this accomplishment, as well as to give Pokemon Generation V a proper send-off before the latest games, Pokemon X & Y are released!

To celebrate the birthdays of several StreetPass Long Island group members, a meet up was planned at Dave & Busters in Farmingdale, NY on 4/28/2013. The group had a lot of fun playing arcade games like Pac Man Battle Royale and Skee-Ball, and of course made time to play Mario Kart 7 and Find Mii II! A cake was served to celebrate the birthdays of 4 different members in attendance. Happy Birthday April Babies!
For Long Island gamers, Farmingdale was the place to brawl on 3.16.13! With over 75 competitors, the new CROSSFIRE Series by theDuL0R and ANTi was a huge success! Competing in the top Smash games (Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Project M), gamers came to compete for cash prizes in both Singles and Doubles Tournaments.
The CROSSFIRE Event Series is held at Empire Gaming & Comics, located at 337 Main Street in Farmingdale, NY. Empire Gaming has a great space for all of our Wii and GC Set Ups, and we plan to return for many future events there!
In addition to the huge Brawl Tournament, Empire Gaming was really awesome and set up a “StreetPass Lounge” complete with couches and an N64 for some old school Brawling! Taking advantage of this extra space, StreetPass Long Island set up shop in the StreetPass Lounge. Free pizza and sodas were given out, and friendly matches of Sonic All-Star Racing Transformed 3DS and Mario Kart 7 were ongoing! We were even able to get our first group photo of some of our SPLI members! (Sorry to those who arrived later and were not around when this picture was taken! Next time!!)
Due to the HUGE success of the CROSSFIRE event series, there will be more installments in the near future! Check back in May for more details! Hope to see you at Empire Gaming!
