Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I will always remember it as Dreamland Park. My parents first took me there when I was six in 1955. When I turned ten I was allowed to ride the Bumper Cars, my favorite. I would have to stay on for a second time. I always saved one ticket so on the way out I could ride the Merry-go-round. As a teenager I took my wife of 44 yrs there for our first date on the Tunnel of Love! When we left we rode the Merry-go-Round. Alan C

Love the "old time" kiddie rides that you don't see anyplace else!!! My grandkids love them because they have never been on them anyplace else. Hope you didn't replace them.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I live in New Jersey and came here with a good friend last year. I'm happy to say it is one my favorite parks, between the rides, the atmosphere, the emplyoees, and the wonderful history. I love these little family owned parks and I cannot wait for my next visit.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I miss the days when you could just go and hang out there. There were no gates or admissions you just hung out in the arcade all day. I remember 1 summer my friend and I got bracelets and road the Jack Rabbit over and over non stop. Those were great days. Miss them.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I love the park with trees and shade where families can rest a bit before their next adventure. Some Parks are just paved lots where there is no respite. Thanks Seabreeze.

How about the "Monkey House" and the ride through haunted themed house. At the bottom of park next to arcade.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

Thanks for the history tidbit, Elaine! Seabreeze was named Dreamland Park for close to 30 years following World War II. The park switched back to Seabreeze in the 1970's.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I notice that they don't mention that Seabreeze was once called Dreamland Park.

Re: “Summer movie preview

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is one of my most anticipated movies left this summer. After seeing the trailer, it looks to do 2011's "Rise" justice in carrying on the rebooted franchise.

Re: “BREWERIES: Have yourself a beer

Psst! Upstate craft brewers exist outside of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Utica. How about you get off the NYS Thruway and visit some places like Ithaca Brewing and Naked Dove in Canandaigua. If this is all you could find, then you need to double up on your research.
