The wooden coaster named "The Jack Rabbit" first opened in 1920, at Seabreeze Amusement Park, located in Rochester N.Y. It was not operating for a short time after a fire that destroyed the station. It re-opened later that same year.
The Jack Rabbit is the 5th oldest, operating wooden rollercoaster in the world.
The carts you sat in have been different over the time. When the coaster first opened, the seats were more narrow, and held little restraints. In the 1970's, the Carts were changed to add a waist bar that would move down, and then lock in place until the ride was over. Also in the 1970's, 2 carts would be on the track at the same time. The carts were also made wider, so it could now fit 2 people in each row. In the 1990's, a note was held by the staff, and one cart was removed, so only one would be on the ride. The carts were also redesigned with more artwork. In 2011, The carts waist bars were replaced with new models, to ensure safety. All others changes are very minor and aren't worth mentioning.
The loading station has gone under a lot of changes. in 1923, a fire destroyed most of the station, cause the ride to close for most of the year. When it was re-built, the waiting line was redesigned to hold more people, and also ensured safety, raising the height of the fences. The sign was redesigned as well, changing the style of the name and also the design of the sign. Other than this, there were no major changes made after the fire. However, in 1990, the station featured new sets of wood, fences made of metal, and a larger waiting area.
The Ride ItselfEdit
The ride itself hasn't been changed much. A sign was added to the top of the first hill that stated "Jack Rabbit" that would feature color changing lights. Very minor changes have been added since the fire of 1923, including replacing old wood supports, refurbishing the station, and adding lights and signs.
The ride itself is very fun, and doesn't shake you as much as other wooden rollercoasters. The staff perform regular inspection on the ride, so you are guaranteed a safe ride. The ride lasts a short 1:53 seconds. There are two main parts: A hill section, and a tunnel. The hill section features, well, hills, getting smaller after each one. The tunnel is a long and completely black part of the track, which, by tradition, everyone screams in. Once it gets dark, the ride lights up with beautiful colors and designs.
During a poll that was made public to Seabreeze visitors, 92% of people said the Jack Rabbit was their favorite ride, and 4% said the metal coaster The Whirlwind.
