Seabreeze Park

Monday, July 9, 2001 3:54 PM
I searched for any trip reports on this small park in Rochester, NY, and nothing came up. So, has anyone been to this park? I may get a chance to go here this weekend and would be interested in any info on this park. I know that they have an ACE coaster classic with a suprise ending. I read about the Jack Rabbit in my "The American Roller Coaster" book, and have been interested in it. I know they have a neat little double looper made by a designer named Soquet. Thanks.

I went to Rochester for my cousin's wedding a few weeks ago. The do not have a huge selection of rides, but here are a few notables:

Jack Rabbit-A must! Easily the best Out and Back I've ever Ridden and the end is real great: A tight helix and water was squirted at us at the end!

Log Flume-There is never a line, but is much steeper than most. I truly got soaked.

Quantum Loop- An okay looper, but pretty smooth. The train derailed from the ride the next day! Don't worry, a minor accident and opened a few days later.

Bobsled-One of the best Wildcats out there, right behind Wildcat at CP.

Near the back of the park, there is a unique, free water park. The slides are some of the most intense I've ever ridden. Some of them pull heavy G's!

Overall, the park is worth a day trip. Cheap, and only ten minute waits on a busy day for Jack Rabbit and Quantum Loop!

Bobsled is a wild mouse? Schwarzkoph? Cool! My aunt just got married a few months in Rochester too, wild.

Actually, Bobsleds, from what I heard was sort-of built in-house. It is a wood structure, and has a steel track. The ride has a very small footprint, and runs tiny little cars.

The Jack Rabbit is an airy John Miller 1927 (i think) and runs a Morgan train. The park also features a Zamperla Hawk, Gyrosphere (a scrambler in the dark), Classic Carousel, A Bisch-Rocco portible flying scooter, Sellner Tilt-a-whirl, a Chance YO YO, A Herchell Crazy Daisy, A Chance Sea Dragon, a looping coaster called Quantum Loop (a french name) a small kids coaster called BEAR TRAX (thats fun) as well as a huge waterpark with a slide called "Vortex" (and that uses the same logo that PKI uses on their Vortex coaster). The log flume, a train and a decent kiddie ride assortment.

The park is built sort of on a bluff over looking lake Ontario.Very picturesque if you ask me!
However, even thought the park is so classic, it does not feature a Ferris Wheel :(

Its a good park, something you may want to spend a few hours at. *** This post was edited by john peck on 7/10/2001. ***

This year they just got a wave pool.
Jackrabbit is one of the best woodys I have been on and is VERY exciting.
Quantum lOOp is OK but sit in the big boy seats for some major airtime.

They have a screamin Eagle which is awesome a must ride 10 times!

I'll put my two cents in - this IS a lovely little park, with a beautiful setting. The area near the lake has kinda that old-fashioned resort feel I love. And the Jack Rabbit is very cool. Definitely worth a trip if'n you're in the area.

Just curious, is the lake open for recreation(a la jet-skis)? It looks like a big lake, not a little in house park lake.

Beautiful park- very Kennywoodish. You'll have a great time, I'm glad I went and I can't see making another visit to upstate New York without stopping at Seabreeze...

Just curious, this didn't make the news section! Wow. That's kind of funny.

seabreeze is a great little park which i visit every year due to the fact that i only live about a half an hour away from it. The jack rabbit is an excellent classic coaster built in the twenties and it has a neat little surprise finish. Also the bobsleds are a great ride. They also have the quantum loop, which is fun but not the best. I also suggest you explore their water park, because i think it's really nice. Also, for some reason on their sea dragon ride (your basic pirate ship) you seem to get much more air then on most typical pirate ship rides, which is cool. Also, the gyrosphere is a neat inclosed scrambler with laser lights and music.
