Lost or found?
The last season for the Jumbo Jet was 1978, it was replaced by the NEW Wildcat in 1979. From there Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet could be just about anywhere. Research tells me that Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet is well traveled and could have take a couple of routes. The first route has our Jumbo Jet moving to the Palace Playland, then being refurbished by Wieland Schwarzkopf and heading to Beoland, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Satellite images have verified that a coaster resembling the Jumbo Jet was set up in this area (Jumbo Jet at Beoland). Another possible route is that Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet was moved to Bush Gardens in 1979, called Glissade, then In 1993 it became Tornado at La Feria Chapultepec Magico in Mexico City and is currently in operation at Selva Mágica in Mexico City. However this ride does not have the super structure with the radar antenna and sign. Cedar Point’s Jumbo jet is also known as the Jet Star 3, a total of 12 Jet Star 3 were made. At this point is it anyone’s guess where Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet is. The search continues!
