Ride historyEdit

Ride synopsisEdit

After lifting, like all the Jumbo Jet coasters, it went down a series of gently-spiraling helixes. After spiral lifts, riders dropped 56ft into a series of tight turns and figure-eight patterns, before ending with a double helix.



  • When it first debuted, Jumbo Jet was the fastest of its kind.


  • Instead of lift chains or launches, Jumbo Jet coasters had wheel motors of the helix inclines.
  • Jumbo Jet was the first Anton Schwarzkopf Jumbo Jet coaster out of the three Schwarzkopf planned to make.
  • After closing at Cedar Point, Jumbo Jet went to four other amusement parks.
