George W. Long Jr. was an American amusement park operator, ride creator, and roller coaster designer and builder. George purchased Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, New York, USA, in 1946, renaming it Dreamland. During his time as owner and operator, George created multiple roller coasters and rides unique to the park. His father, George Long Sr. owned the park previous to him. George operated the park through 1973, after which, his children took over operations.[1]

Philadelphia Toboggan Company[edit | edit source]

The Philadelphia Toboggan Company built carousel number 36 for George Long in 1915.[1] In 1926 the Carousel was relocated to Seabreeze from nearby Seneca Park to replace the original Long Carousel built by his father, George Long Sr. . It remained until 1994 when a large fire destroyed it along with much of the North End of the park. The carousel was famed for its grandeur and aftermarket electrical lighting system installed by George Long Jr.[1]
