HELP

Turbo Mountain was a steel sit-down roller coaster built by German manufacturer Schwarzkopf previously located at Adventure World in Bibra Lake, Western Australia, Australia.

History

The ride started operation in 1975, travelling the German fairs with Rudolf Barth. It was a standard Jet Star 2 at this point, with the iconic Electric spiral lift. Barth eventually sold the coaster after 1981, after which it would end up in Luna Park, now dawning the name Geronimo. It continued operation at Luna Park up until 1988, closing on the 10th of april. It's whereabouts where unknown for the two following years, before the coaster reappeared at Adventure World with major changes. The lift was replaced with a standard Chain lift hill, making it a rather unusual looking Jet Star 2. The trains where also replaced with new ones, changing the 1x6 arrangement of normal Jet Star trains to a 2x3.
