Photo TR: Seabreeze June 4

Postby niiicolaaah » Mon Jun 05, 2006 6:23 am

Part 1: The rest will come tonight when I get home from work!

Yesterday, Carnage was going to come down for some rides on the Silver Comet and Crazy Mouse, since he had never been to Martin's Fantasy Island. We were going to take advantage of the cheap 5 pm admission. However, when Paul got to the park, it was closed due to inclement weather. Apparently sunny and 65 degrees was not good enough for Marty! Hehe. Anyway, we were thinking about going to Marineland, but they don't have cheap evening admission. So like any respectable credit whore would do, we decided to take a little road trip to Seabreeze in Rochester, which ended up being about a 90 minute drive. :lolr:

The park was very small and "ghetto", but their coasters were very well maintained, and I had an enjoyable time. This is definitely not a park I could spend a whole day at; however, the credit whoring was easy and their coasters are pretty fun, so I will probably go back there at some point in the future.

We brought our cameras on the rides, after specifically asking the Jack Rabbit ride op "Can we bring our cameras on the ride?" After that, whenever we brought our cameras on, we made sure they were in plain view and obviously in our hands when the ops were checking our restraints. So don't go yelling at us for breaking any rules. =)

On the way, we passed the exit for Darien Lake.

The helpful signs made sure we wouldn't get lost. However, there was one sign that pointed straight and to the left at the same time that sort of confused us.

Woot! We're here! And I see flyers! I'm excited

Paul takes forever to do stuff. At PCW it was the soda machine; at Seabreeze, it was getting his camera ready.

Cute park entrance.

This was my first flyer experience. It was pretty tame and slow.

First credit of the season!! YES!

The very first ride was the only time the train would be full.

Jack Rabbit is a fun little ride with a cool tunnel. In the front seat there is a little bit of gentle air to be had.

There's Bear Trax, which had a ride op that wouldn't let us ride.

This was the only time we saw the ride operating when we were there!

This was my first spinning coaster, and I really liked it!

All I could think of while pulling into MFIs parking lot was "PArks closed, didn't the moose out front tell you?".

I watched car after car of confused people pull into the lot only to turn around once confirming that no one was in site.

One lady even pulled up and asked me when the park closed. After I responded with "I don't know, I just got here", she said "To work??". Uhh, no I do not work here.

Trip worked out well in the end though, even though I made it home close to 1AM. I'll try and post stuff tonight, though the pics are probably close tot he same Nicole has. ;)

When I asked the Jackrabbit op if we could take cameras on the rides he just looked at me like I was crazy for asking.

Awww, denied your kiddie credit...how sad!!!! (but not pathetic!)

Do they still have the bobsled coaster? I remember thinking that was fun! I'm sure the mouse is WAY better than Quantum Loop!!!

Sorry, the name bobsleds is misleading.

It's a steel coaster running small boblsed type cars. It's built using the supports of some old wooden roller coaster.

The name and the cars are the only things that are bobsled. It's not a boblsed type coaster.

AGain, it's a weird credit. ;)

You being serious? I haven't been on it but its no different to any other Reverchon Mouse, there would be more of them on the UK trip but Pleasurewood Hills removed theirs and the one Lightwater Valley maybe closed temporarly, I dunno.

Any nice pics, I must say Nicola, you have one hell of a smile.
