Seabreeze gets approval for new waterslide
Connoisseurs of the inner tube will have a new water slide to try at Seabreeze Park this summer.
The Irondequoit amusement park's owners are upgrading the Raging Rivers Waterpark with a new twisting and turning slide dubbed "Helix" and renovating the Banzai Pipeline water slide in an attempt to beef up appeal to out-of-town tourists.
They will also install a new water purification system to comply with new state water cleanliness regulations, which came in response to an outbreak of waterborne parasites at spray parks last summer.
