CP’s Jumbo Jet @ Beoland Russia

I have sent lots of emails out regarding the Jumbo Jet at Cedar Point, about where it is today and for the most part I get “Gee we don’t really know”. However last night I received a reply from Schwarzkopf Coaster Net and the Jumbo Jet that was at Cedar Point is at Beoland in Russia. Michael Pantenburg writes:
After leaving Cedar Point, it has been at several stationary parks (for example Palace Playland in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA) and has traveled with a few showmen before going to Beoland in Russia. Beoland was originally scheduled to open in 2001, but was delayed until the 2002 or 2003 season. Prior to Russia, the coaster was refurbished by Wieland Schwarzkopf.
At this point we are not really sure if the Jumbo Jet is in operation or SBNO. We now know the beginning and the end. The research continues for the in between. He also sent me this photo:

    If this indeed is the jumbo jet that was at cedar point, it looks to be in great shape, minus the ride name on top of the structure. If it is SBNO I’d say dismantle it and rebuild it at cedar point. What a fun coaster it was. I have so many fond memories of the jumbo jet

      Then that makes 2 of us. I have great memories of the Jumbo Jet and Cedar Point that was back in the day. Today it is a completely different park.

    this jumbo jet went from cedar point and lasted at old orchard beach from 1979-1984. It was the first roller coaster I ever rode and would love to ride it again somewhere. I wish palace playland kept this but the maintenence was hard to keep up with.
