Later this year the owner of the Go-Karts and Batting Range, and Defunct Jumbo Jet have decided to replace the ride with a Huss Top Spin. Hopefully he hopes it will be in by the end of May or earlier. The Jumbo Jet is now completely packed for its trip to its next location.
Over Seas to the far East.
China to be exact I am not sure where in China but somewhere around Hong Kong.
So the Jumbo Jet will have another chance to thrill people.

Too bad it won't be thrilling anyone over here in the U.S., or more specifically, the NY/NJ area. I remember, just five years ago, there were FOUR Schwarzkopf compact steel coasters around here- the Jet Stars in Seaside Heights and Wildwood, Ocean City's City Jet, and Coney's Jumbo Jet. Now they're all gone except for the City Jet (which seems as if it will be at Ocean City for the forseeable future.) What a shame for the area to lose so many wonderful Schwarzkopf coasters! And I understand the Seaside Jet Star was destroyed so that it will never thrill riders again...

A Top Spin would be a good addition to the Coney area, especially considering how most of their flats are run "at 11." I'm still holding out hope that another coaster will be brought in.
