One of the coolest things on the net is Google Maps and Street View and man the things that you can see from above and at the street level. On this post we travel to France and check out the Jumbo Jet at Amigoland. Our original blog post was titled Amigoland’s Jumbo Jet!Google Maps Satellite of Amigoland
I hope that Google won’t mind that I “borrowed” these screen shots. Now lets hope that Street View gets to Minsk Belarus so we can see our beloved Jumbo Jet. Let’s Ride!
Ok, I was checking my wordpress “stats” and found a link from another blog Called Rejected Amusements. Now they blog about all types of rides that are now, dare we say it, LOST! To my joy they have just blogged about thelostcoaster aka Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet and to boot they mention us! Rejected Amusements describes us as; Pictures, maps, and videos can be found at The Lost Coaster, a whole blog dedicated to the memory of the Jumbo Jet.Thanks so much Rejected Amusements for the shout out! Let’s Ride!
Not everything on this blog is something that I have found on my own. Sometimes I get great tips from readers of this blog, DrewBorg sent me an email and asked me if I ever saw this:This great picture of one of the Jumbo Jet’s trains came from the book, Cedar Point: The Queen of American Watering Places by David W. Francis and Diane DeMali Francis. This book is a complete history of Cedar Point. David and Diane also wrote several other books including: A couple of great gift ideas for the Cedar Point fan in your life. Just a hint, I have neither of these books… Let’s Ride!
It really doesn’t matter if it a Jet Star 2 or a Jet Star 3/Jumbo Jet it has the special sound that no other coaster has. I really enjoyed the sound portion of this YouTube Video:
Only one thing left to say, Let’s Ride!
I am always on the look out for neat stuff on either the Jumbo Jet or Jet Star 2 and I just found this really cool front seat POV of the lagoon’s Jet Star 2 at night.
Just a little something for you on the off season as you think forward to opening day at Cedar Point and what they have new in store for us in 2012. Let’s Ride!
