What WE know!

What we know is not much as to the location of Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet. My favorite picture of Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet. Thanks CoasterBob62!

For the most part here is the timeline that I can come up with:
****************************
The Lost Coaster:
Jumbo Jet (Jet Star 3)
1972 – 1978 at Cedar Point
0000 – 0000 at Palace PlayLand, Orchard Beach Maine
0000 – 0000 at ???? Touring Europe
0000 – 0000 at Malmö Folkets Park, Sweden
0000 – 0000 at ????, Prague
0000 – 0000 at Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
0000 – 0000 at Minsk, Belarus
****************************
From what I can tell this is mostly correct even though I am missing a lot of dates. I have tried to contact Palace Playland to see if I they had any information on the Jumbo Jet and my emails have gone unanswered. I do know that a Jumbo Jet was at Palace Playland in 1983 because there is a picture in the Lewiston Daily Sun May 14 1983 edition. Thanks to Ryanjm13 who sent me the link! It’s like putting together a BIG jigsaw puzzle and you have to put 2 and 2 together to get 4. You get a little info here and get an “I think” there and a “not really sure” in an email, one thing is for sure, the hunt continues and if you know anything about Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet or have some great pictures let me know. Together we will find the location of out favorite ride, CP’s Jumbo Jet!

UPDATE 7:00am 05/01/2010
I just checked Google Maps and the view from above shows the Jumbo Jet being dismantled at Beoland. Not sure when this image was taken:

I have taken a screen shot of the image to preserve this moment. See Google Map’s Jumbo Jet being dismantled at Beoland!

UPDATE #2 According to Bing Maps the Jumbo Jet that was at Beoland is gone:

Check out Bing Maps and see Beoland is no more. Thanks to @drewborg on Twitter for the heads up. Looks as if this Jumbo Jet is truly thelostcoaster!
