Decades of Family Fun

The Seabreeze Amusement Park originally opened its doors on August 5, 1879, as the last stop on the steam railroad. When it first opened up, it was popular for its picnic groves and the lakefront water views. While the picnic spot was a hit, the park soon began adding mechanical rides to help draw in a bigger crowd.

During the 1920’s, the amusement park saw an increase in visitors as thousands come to enjoy the Virginia Reel, which was the world’s largest saltwater swimming pool. At this point, it is important to note that four roller coasters, including the park classic Jack rabbit, made their way into the park, giving visitors even more thrills to seek.

The 1940’s through the 1970’s saw a lot of park revamping going on. In the 1940’s, George Long, a member of the third generation of the Long family, bought the park and renamed it “Dreamland.” He also began adding in Circus-style acts and band concerts.

The 1950’s saw another spike in visitors as more and more families came to enjoy rides such as the Lightning Bug ride. They also enjoyed other attractions such as the Fairyland Zoo, a variety of live shows, and the goin’-upside-down Rock-O-Planes.

The next few years were pretty good for the park, that is until the late 1960’s and early 1970’s when the park experiences what they call “a few slow years.” It was at this time that the grandchildren of the Long family begun rebuilding the park by adding new attractions such as the Gyrosphere, ManHandlers, Kaleidoscope, Loop-O-Planes, and the Paratrooper. They even went so far as to rename the park Seabreeze Amusement Park once more.

From then on, the park continues to expand and grow to include more attractions that cater to the needs and wants of everyone in the family. The park now includes multiple roller-coasters, water rides and a wide variety of other rides for everyone to enjoy.
