Whirlwind is a steel spinning roller coaster located at Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, New York, USA.

History[edit | edit source]

Whirlwind was manufactured in 2000 and first operated as a travelling roller coaster with showman Frauga. At the time it was called Cyber Space and it operated in Spain. The roller coaster was seized, and later sold to Seabreeze.[1]

In December 2003, park management announced that a Maurer Rides spinning roller coaster would be installed for 2004, the park's 125th season. To make way for the new attraction, the Quantum Loop was removed.[2] It has since reopened at Salitre Magico in Mexico.

Design[edit | edit source]

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car. Each row sits facing back-to-back.
