The Jack Rabbit, a wooden roller coaster at Seabreeze Amusement park, turns 100 years old this year.
Built in 1920, the Jack Rabbit is the nation’s oldest continuously operating roller coaster, according to Seabreeze officials. Additionally, it’s tied for fourth place in the world for the same category, according to the National Amusement Park Historical Association.
When it opened a century ago, the Jack Rabbit was the fastest coaster in the world.
In 2010, the thrill ride was included in a CBS News list of the five best roller coasters in the country.
