Seabreeze Amusement Park

I personally believe Seabreeze is not as "meh" as many other theme park fans may think. If given more attention from the community, it could possibly become a "Knoebel's of New York".

Who on here ever called Seabreeze "meh?"

Seabreeze is a great little park that is very well-maintained, has friendly staff, and a nice modest collection of attractions. It might not get as much attention in the forums due to a lack of size and somewhat remote location, but the park is nowhere near meh. The owners take a lot of pride in their park, and I do not think the park is lacking attention from the community or whoever. The locals love the place too. Seabreeze is a quiet ongoing success story as a family-owned and operated amusement park.

Seabreeze is in my opinion the best amusement park in New York. It has a great atmosphere, the rides are fun and always working and the parking is free! What's not to love?

I was thrilled when they purchased some of Freestyles M.P.'s rides. I almost wished they purchased more of them, it would have enhanced an already great lineup.

My only fear is that they seem to be running out of room for expansion, unless they want to start building into the parking lots.

I drove by Seabreeze on a whim the other day, I just wanted to drool and wish that the park was already open. I noticed that Jackrabbit had some retracking done. The double-down and hill just after it were the only parts I could see with new wood. I'm not sure if there was track work done anywhere else. I also saw that they posted pictures of the freshly painted Tilt-a-Whirl on FB. It looks great! I can't wait for the park to open, it's gong to be a fun year!

According to Seabreeze it is more purple than blue in color.

^WOW! Now that is how you refresh a ride! Refreshing traditional rides with a modern touch like flashy new paint is always great to see. Looks like a nice layer of clear coat was applied to make it pop and help prolong the life of the paint.

Nice paint booth too! I envy the cleanliness as I think about my temporary painting work area at my park.

Seabreeze is one of those parks I've wanted to visit just for its history factor...and then the extra rides are a bonus! Jack Rabbit is an antique, Bobsleds are one-of-a-kind, the carousel looks beautiful...I could go on. Flyers, a log flume converted from a mill chute, dodgems in a former coaster station...plus the atmosphere looks like it's a very special place for Rochester. I know I'm not the first to say this, but I feel like Seabreeze would give off a vibe similar to Waldameer pre-Ravine Flyer II. Given how much I love Waldameer (though I never did visit before RFII opened) that can only mean good things!

Every time that I'm reminded that Seabreeze still exists I feel a bit uplifted. We lost so many classic parks in the decade following the new millennium, but Seabreeze is one of the best examples of a classic park that has kept chugging along without many "major" changes in the way it operates. We've really got to treasure the last few places we have like this, because once they're gone they can't be replaced.

It's on my fairly short-list to get there, but I've got a few places ahead of it and can only go so far every year.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Seabreeze opened last weekend and I stopped by to check things out for a few hours. The park looks great and the staff was efficient and professional as is the norm. I've been visiting Seabreeze since 1999 and every year they have been working on upgrading and refurbishing the park. According to the park newsletter they did some work on Jack Rabbit over the winter as well as built a pedestal for the Band Organ, completely refurbished the Tilt-a-Whirl and performed some upgrades to some bathrooms as well. If you're passing through the Rochester area, be sure to stop by and check out Seabreeze for a few hours; it's a fun little park and is well worth a visit.

Here are a few pictures from around the park.

Great photos! Seabreeze was the surprise of my northern New York/Canada trip a few years ago. The park kind of reminded me of Canobie in terms of its atmosphere and ability to balance classic attractions with new attractions.

I like how they added a Wave Swinger to replace their old Chance Yo-Yo and am sure that the ride gives a long cycle like their other flats.
