Roller coaster enthusiasts from around U.S. visit Seabreeze
Irondequoit, N.Y. - Roller coasters enthusiasts from across the country stepped foot in the Rochester Saturday.
About 60 people from 11 states checked out the coasters at Seabreeze Amusement Park in Irondequoit.
The rides included the Jack Rabbit and the Bobsleds, which are considered classics to people outside the area as well as Seabreeze regulars.
"Sometimes bigger is not always better," said Wade Abbott, a member of the NYS branch of American Coaster Enthusiasts. "The way I look at it is - a ride like the Jack Rabbit has been around almost 100 years and its still thrilling riders almost a century later! How many rides, how many things that you do on a daily basis can you say that about? Its amazing."
"They're literally works of art. They're history you can experience by riding it," Abbott said about the local coasters.
The coaster enthusiasts usually donate to a charity in the town they're in, and Abbott told us Seabreeze recommended the Pirate Toy Fund.
