The Park

Seabreeze Park is very historic and was established in 1879. It offers both amusement park rides as well as a waterpark (map)The park has always been family owned and is currently owned by its 6th generation! There are signs and photos posted around the park to explain what used to be on a particular site. The original family got started in the business by hand carving carousel horses; there are artifacts from the past located in the carousel building.

The park is located on a bluff with views of both Lake Ontario and the Irondequoit Bay.  You can rent an electric scooter to tour the park if you prefer not to walk. The atmosphere is hard to beat when at night all the lights are turned on in the park.  There are also arcade games and games of chance. The park has two gift shops and is famous for funnel cakes! There is a free acrobatic show called Cirque En Vol. Finally, there’s the Jack Rabbit Roller Coaster which opened in 1920, making it one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the country.
