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.

History

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]
