Researching the Sea Breeze Wild Cat (1926-1935)


Recommended Posts

I have been working on a small research project to learn more about the Wild Cat roller coaster that was a centerpiece at Sea Breeze Park in Rochester, NY from 1926 - 1935. I have collected a number of photographs, a few articles, and have been in close contact with the park's archivist. My hope is to be able to tell the story of the Wild Cat so that it can be remembered. I am reaching out to see if anyone has any information related to the ride that they would be willing to share.

 

Wild Cat was designed by Herbert P. Schmeck of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and it looks to have been an interesting ride. It filled the giant ravine where the park's log ride now sits and I love the tunneled run through the ravine at the start of the ride. The pictures below gives an idea of what the ride looked like. Anyone want to go for a ride?

 

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge!

Wild Cat's curved drop was right behind Jack Rabbit's station. Jack Rabbit is still a great ride to this day.

I pasted a couple of pictures together to help get a general idea of what the ride looked like.
