Next in line City Jet 400

1972 was the 1st year for the Jumbo Jet and Cedar Point had one in there park that same year. In 1973 Schwarzkopf introduced the City Jet or Jet 400 which is an odd looking coaster. Last year Movieland Studios in Lago di Garda, Veneto, Italy introduced the BrontoJet. Which is a refurbished City Jet coaster and was relocated to the park by Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH.

This coaster was at Lightwater Valley and was named the Viper in operation from 1996 – 2001. The coaster was moved to Loudoun Castle and was in operation from July of 2002 through 2004. The name was changed to Slitherin’ from Viper in 2004, then was in storage from 2005 – 2009 according to RCDB. Exactly where this coaster was prior to 1996 is anyone’s guess. I think that I will stick with the Jumbo Jet, if you don’t mind!
