Seabreeze Amusement Park is a family owned amusement park located in Irondequoit, a suburb of the City of Rochester, in the Finger Lakes region of Western New York. It opened as a trolley park in 1879, making it the fourth-oldest operating amusement park in the United States. The park features four roller coasters including North America's oldest continually operating roller coaster (and the world's fourth oldest roller coaster),[1] The Jack Rabbit.


On July 30, 2020, the park announced that it would not reopen until 2021, citing a lack of guidance from the state during the coronavirus pandemic.[2]


On August 6, 2021 Seabreeze was awarded the prestigious New York State Senate Empire Award in recognition of their continued upkeep and preservation of the historic Jack Rabbit roller coaster in addition to the park's continued presence over the previous 143 years.

The award was presented by New York State Senator Samra Brouk and State Assemblymember Sarah Clark and received by park president Rob Norris.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the award was unable to be presented for the Jack Rabbit's 100th anniversary in 2020, and was instead presented in 2021 during the Jack Rabbit's 101st year in operation.[3][4]
