Photo TR: Seabreezing to Fantasy Island

Postby beatle11 » Sun Jul 17, 2011 8:58 am

Yesterday, I drove out to Seabreeze and Martin's Fantasy Island. I crossed the border at Queenston/Lewiston after a 1 hour wait, urghh. The good news is that was by far the longest time I spent in a line all day. I decided to use the NY-18 and the Ontario State Parkway to make my way to Rochester. It's a beautiful drive along the lake, through some small towns. Little to no traffic at all. I took nearly 200 pictures between both parks. Here are some of the better ones.

Welcome to Seabreeze!

DSCN0036.JPG
First stop, the Bobsleds.

DSCN0042.JPG
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme....

DSCN0027.JPG
I've heard horror stories about this ride, but it wasn't bad at all.

DSCN0028.JPG
Next up was Whirlwind, the Maurer spinning coaster.

DSCN0017.JPG
Wheee! It spun quite a bit, but nothing really crazy. Pretty fun ride.

DSCN0080.JPG
Next up was the main attraction!

DSCN0081.JPG
Up the lift.

DSCN0083.JPG
Around the turn.

DSCN0085.JPG
They took the tunnel! This ride was running great! Great air in the front car, especially coming up the hill into the turn around.

DSCN0092.JPG
Log Flume. Didn't feel like getting wet today. It was pretty hot too, so the line was pretty long.

DSCN0094.JPG
Here they come!

DSCN0095.JPG
Skloooosh!

DSCN0076.JPG
Kiddie/Credit whore coaster.

DSCN0078.JPG
Wheee!

DSCN0079.JPG
Into the trench. Nice kiddie coaster.

DSCN0044.JPG
The park also had a Music Express. One of the better flats around.

DSCN0043.JPG
Sea Dragon. This one got up to a pretty good angle.

DSCN0075.JPG
Tilt-A-Whirl. Classic.

DSCN0073.JPG
Flyers. Another classic.

DSCN0070.JPG
Screamin' Eagle. I heard blood curdling screams coming from this thing. No thanks.

DSCN0096.JPG
YoYo was down for the count today.

DSCN0099.JPG
Seabreeze also has a pretty nice looking water park.

DSCN0108.JPG
Dan's worst nightmare.

DSCN0102.JPG
Very nice.

DSCN0048.JPG
What could this be?

DSCN0049.JPG
Gorgeous carousel! Organ sounded great. There were even rocking chairs in the pavilion if you wanted to watch, or just relax for a while.

DSCN0106.JPG
Absolutely beautiful.

DSCN0054.JPG
There were these historical pictures on display in the pavilion.

DSCN0055.JPG
Bobsleds.

DSCN0056.JPG
It was worth the effort.

DSCN0057.JPG
Whirlwind. Nice addition to the park.

DSCN0088.JPG
This one was posted over by Jack Rabbit.

DSCN0112.JPG
And that was Seabreeze. Finishing off with this. Interesting tidbit of info given a recent occurrence.


Seabreeze is definitely a great park with charm. I'd definitely visit again. MFI pics to come.

Nice pics, Chris! I am embarrassed to say that I have never been to SeaBreeze despite only being about three hours away. Looks like a nice little park...very similar to Waldameer.

Regarding the Queenston/Lewiston bridge, I try to avoid that one at all costs. Seems like the Peace Bridge and Rainbow Bridge should be way worse, but every time I see the Q/L bridge it's always packed and has a huge wait time to cross. I think the Rainbow Bridge at the Falls has the least amount of wait...at least every time I have crossed there.

SeaBreeze looks like it's worth the trip. I'll have to try to head out that way this summer. Looking forward to the MFI update!

What sort of horror stories have you heard about Bobsleds? It's one of the funnest coasters anywhere. I love it.

I've read some things about it on the forum about it, and seen some pictures. But it was definitely more fun than I imagined.

After visiting Seabreeze, I made the trek across I-90 and met up with ClubTPR member DougMJr at Martin's Fantasy Island. If you visit after 5, admission is only 13 bucks. Great way to spend the end of a day. Pictures below.

DSCN0157.JPG
Biggest reason we are here. Silver Comet!

DSCN0158.JPG
It looks pretty impressive.

DSCN0178.JPG
At the top.

DSCN0171.JPG
Overall, the ride was running pretty well. It does throw you around a fair bit on the turns, and it was kinda rough near the end, but overall a very good woodie.

DSCN0113.JPG
The parks other coaster is a Zamperla "Spinning" Mouse. This one is definitely Elissa friendly.

DSCN0116.JPG
Basic layout. It's meant to spin during the second half of the ride, but it really doesn't spin much, if at all.

DSCN0129.JPG
Ferris wheel shot!

DSCN0141.JPG
Speaking of the Ferris Wheel.

DSCN0120.JPG
Just in case you forgot where you were.

DSCN0115.JPG
The parks Log Flume. I hear you do get pretty wet on this one.

DSCN0135.JPG
Pretty nice looking.

DSCN0136.JPG
At the top.

DSCN0144.JPG
The park also has a small Star Flyer. It may be smaller than the others, but it still delivers. It ran a long cycle and it was pretty fast as well.

DSCN0131.JPG
Ferris Wheel shot! Looks really nice.

DSCN0168.JPG
The parks Disco.

DSCN0167.JPG
Definitely gets right up to the edge.

DSCN0165.JPG
New craziness for 2011!

DSCN0151.JPG
This thing seriously looks insane. The Disco was enough spinning for me.

DSCN0155.JPG
The parks other new ride for this year is a Gravitron.

DSCN0182.JPG
We end the day and we see an ACEr taking a nap. Must have eaten too many of Fat Phil's chicken fingers.


Overall, we enjoyed our time. Definitely a nice place to stop for the evening if you are visiting Darien Lake or Seabreeze. Thankfully the trip back across the border was only 5 minutes this time. Thanks for reading everyone. Please comment away!

Great pictures of these two parks! Can't wait to check out Seabreeze before LeviaTHON and then Martins Fantasy Island on the actual LeviaTHON trip. After riding Silver Comet I'll have ridden all of the "Comets" in the USA.

Great pictures! I loved Seabreeze and Martin's when I visited in 2010. Bobsleds was all sorts of messed up, but still awesome. I need to get back to Martin's to grab more rides on Silver Comet.

Seabreeze is definitely a nice little add-on to the Leviathon trip. Jack Rabbit is a solid classic woodie, and the ops were dispatching the train in less than 30 seconds Martins Fantasy Island is a nice place to spend a few hours at. They have done a pretty good job keeping Silver Comet running well.
