As you could probably guess, I was on RCDB (again) and I saw that they updated their Seabreeze pictures. Needless to say it looks like one really awesome park. The Bobsleds looks brand new it was so meticulously taken care of (well from what I can see in the pictures) And the Soquet double loop looks descent for a small park like that (I have heard complaints of excessive headbanging, but that wouldn't hold me back) all that combined with a Miler coaster for the kiddies and that really awesome looking Jack Rabbit with Morgan trains, geez I wonder how much less Morgan's can possibly be that you would buy them before you would buy PTC. But anyway, how is the park really from a riding perspective and how far is it from NYC or SFDL?

SfgamDie Hard, I live 10min from Seabreeze. I live in Rochester,Ny. I can tell you the bobsleds are sort of a legend in my city.

The bobsleds have been around since my mom and pops were young. I rode the bobsleds when I was young, I love it quick turns sharp drops and the rickety old wood the structure is made of it's a great ride. Tubular steel track.

The Jack Rabbit is the 3rd oldest rollercoaster in the world built in 1920 it is also a great Miller coaster the tunnel at the end is worth the trip alone.

The Quantum Loop is horrible. The ride seems like it lasts about 15 sec and it is rough short and boring not very liked around here that's why I do believe Seabreeze is selling it.

From Seabreeze SFDL is 67 miles away about 45 min (If you drive the speed limit)and NYC Is about 300 miles away from rochester. When I went to SFGADV and New York two weekends ago it took us about 5 1/2 hours to get there not very long.

Seabreeze from a rider perspective is a very good park for it's size and location it's worth a trip. Let me know when your coming maybe I can meet you there.

Go here for a nice guide to the parks as well as Rosaland and Six Flags Darien Lake. Don't worry, thats not barbeque you smell, it's more mature, not a big flame the park special.

I went in thinking "check here, check there" and ended up begging the security guards to let me stay overnight. And the Bobsleds....wow!

Lookng at their park map on Seabreeze's official site, the park looks actually, very very small!!

I mean, the waterpark looks almost the same size as the amusement park!! It also appears that they have the potential to expand, so it'd be nice if they added a few real rides, or "signature" rides to that park.

To me, it looks small... even smaller than Martin's Fantasy Island, despite having more coasters. I don't think I'm going to make the hour + trip to there unless they do get a couple better rides in the next couple seasons. Classics are nice, but you gotta have a real thrill here & there (besides Screaming Eagle).

Glad you like the Seabreeze pics. All the coasters but QL were pics taken by me during my Memorial weekend coaster trip. The first BearTrax pic is is follows: Row 1-my son,Row 2-my wife and my daughter, Row 3-my mother.

It is a nice little park and we had a good time there. We used it as a convenient stopping point from NJ to Martin's Fantasy Island. The most fun we had here was actually on the bumper cars. My daughter was able to ride with me and they actually let you stay out there for quite a while. The thing that made the bumper cars so memorable was a mother and her son who actually gave us dirty looks for running into their cars. Hello, the ride is called the bumper cars. Needless to say, after the dirty looks, we took every opportunity to slam into them again and again.

Wow Dawgbyte, you wouldn't drive an hour for a classic park like that? Well I guess everybody has their preferences but I can honestly say I'd take a trip to Seabreeze before I'd take a trip to IOA.

The coaster I want in my backyard!!!! Their kiddie coaster Bear Trax is really fun with some good airtime and a nice lateral slam at the end. They did a nice job with the scenery too.

I've been to seabreeze but there is one problem: They need to update. They need a new coaster, a drop tower, or somthing.

If you are going to go to a smalltown park like this take the drive to Grand Island and ride a great CCI. Silver Comet is my favorite woodie and the park actually tries to update, while keeping its classic carnival type look, by adding SC and that new Chance Slingshot called Daredevil.
