I found this coaster on CoasterGallery.

It's apparently an indoor Schwarzkopf that has been sitting dormant at Great Escape since 2007.

I'm not familiar with Schwarzkopf making a "Jet Star" model.

Any pics of an unenclosed version of this ride? :?r

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.
