Jumbo Jet was a prefabricated steel roller coaster at Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. Jumbo Jet was a member of the well-known Jet Star 3 / Jumbo Jet model line which was designed and manufactured by noted roller coaster designer Anton Schwarzkopf. Jumbo Jet was erected in 1975 as part of the Fun Fair section of Great Adventure. Press accounts at the time quoted Great Adventure vice president for operations Robert Minick as saying that Jumbo Jet was "the largest ready-made roller coaster that [could] be bought". The coaster was leased from Willy Miller's Continental Park Attractions along with several of the other rides in the Fun Fair section. The ride was assembled in the spring, and by all accounts sat idle for weeks. The Jumbo Jet never operated or opened to the public while it was at the park. Currently no reason is known for why the coaster never opened. About a month after being built, the ride was dismantled. It is still unknown where the ride went or what happened to this ride. While there is no confirmation in regards to this Jumbo Jet's final location, and many rumors persist, Roller Coaster DataBase puts forward the rumor that this coaster was the Jumbo Jet at Morey's Piers. Other sources directly contradict this idea, however, providing evidence that the Morey's Piers Jumbo Jet was purchased in Germany.
