WildCat in Jumbo Jet’s spot!

In 1979 Cedar Point replaced the Jumbo Jet with a new roller coaster called the WildCat. Mike G took some pictures from the “Needle” and sent me this:
The next few pictures were taken in 1979 and they are of the “new” Wildcat, which was installed where the Jumbo Jet was from 1972 – 1978. If you look real close, you can identify some of the tell tale signs that the Jumbo Jet was there. Things like where the old ride queue was, oil stains from various parts of the ride, oil stains from the old maintenance area. It is interesting to note that the WildCat in 1979 had the same colors as the Jumbo Jet. The only difference today is a change in the WildCat’s color and location and the Jumbo Jet is at DreamLand in Minsk Belarus. Let’s Ride!
