I found this coaster on CoasterGallery.
It's apparently an indoor Schwarzkopf that has been sitting dormant at Great Escape since 2007.
Anyone have more info on this coaster?

I'm not familiar with Schwarzkopf making a "Jet Star" model.
Any pics of an unenclosed version of this ride?

Look up the model on RCDB (Here's a link
)and you can see where there were other models installed. Here's a couple pics of Tig'rr coaster at Indiana Beach from the Park Index

I remember riding this when it was nightmare at phantom cave at Darien Lake. It was a fun ride. Six Flags removed it and put a Batman show in the building. When Six flags sold the park and Parc started managing Darien Lake the building was turned into the Galaxy Theatre. Home to a circus show and later, sea lion splash...

In its last year it was one of the lowest capacity coasters I ever experienced. I think there were 30 people ahead of me and I waited 45 minutes

I rode this, though I have next to no memory of the ride itself.
I do however have a perfect memory of the obnoxious screaming kids that were in line ahead of us.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk also once had a Schwarzkopf Jet Star, that operated from 1972 to 1991. It was replaced by the current SDC ride, Hurricane.http://rcdb.com/715.htm
