Black Hole Refurbished by Gerstlauer
The Jet Star II is all ready to go. Doesn't it look awesome?
It looks beautiful and I really hope it will find a buyer. With another Jet Star recently sold to Movieland in Italy and another Schwarzkopf Looping Coaster sold to Zoomarine in Rome, it seems, that there is a market right now for well kept Schwarzkopf coasters...
The Jet Star II is simultaneously my favourite and least favourite Schwarzkopf that I've ridden - favourite because of the layout and least favourite because it was in the dark. I'd love to ride both a Jet Star II and a Jumbo Jet (which I haven't ridden at all) outdoors.
Wow that looks amazing! Great to see the ride has been given a new breathe of life, lets hope somebody picks it up
Does anybody know if Movieland's Jet Star is the one from Loudoun castle, as they got the freefall ride from Loudoun/bembom a few seasons back now?
It's too bad Alton couldn't have had this done when it was still Black Hole. regardless, it looks great, and I do think someone will pick it up. I tip my hat to Gerstlauer, if this is a success, maybe we might find them restoring other Schwarzkopfs (and still making rides, mind you).
