Hurricane Jets was a set of Jets built by UK manufacturer Lang Wheels (under license from Kaspar Klaus) that was previously located at Pleasureland Southport in Southport, Merseyside, England, UK. The ride was offered for sale following its removal from the park, however no buyer was found and the ride was scrapped.


The ride was originally introduced to the park by Helters Ltd. in 1957, however in 1976 ownership passed to Herbert Silcock - a concessionaire with a number of other attractions at the park. Around this time new passenger vehicles were fitted by Modern Products. Concessionaires were faded out during the 1990s and so this ride passed into the ownership of the park in 1994.
