They're bringing back Jazzland, and the person behind the project said that the Jester is being redone with a Launch and will be rethemed as a mountain themed ride, while the Mega Zeph will be redone and will get new elements.

In other news, Jazzland V2.0 will NOT be having Zydeco Scream, as they said that it will be sold to another park so that the burden of the vekoma boomerang will live on and another park will have the curse, i'm hoping it's not going to be Six Flags Over Georgia, as i've ridden a Vekoma Boomerang at Carowinds(Which still counts as a perk, as that boomerang came from the Now-Defunct Geaugua Lake/Six Flags Ohio Park), if i recall exactly it wasn't a good experience.

I'll post more news as it comes in, really cannot wait for Jazzland 2.0 to open soon.

Honestly, what's the point?? With a layout like this:

All I can see them doing is removing the lift hill, putting in a launch, and a "high-g" turnaround to head it back towards the loop. . .

I can't imagine that the investment would even be worth it. Why not just scrap the ride and build something else??

Idk... maybe it's just me... But I don't see any of this ever actually happening. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I Have a reason to be excited for the new version of the Jester, that reason being that it's a Vekoma Hurricane.

Vekoma's Hurricane Model only exists in 2 Rides and the Jester is currently one of them, it could be a great perk to be earned just you wait ;)

Part of me considered responding to this Jester stuff but in the end...

Yeah, basically. I'd love for someone to be able to re-open this place and I know there are groups who are working on it but we've been hearing about the return of Jazzland for a decade now and nothing noteworthy has come out of any of it. I tend to agree with you on this one.

I got this news via Messaging the Official Jazzland Facebook Profile, but i think there's a interview with Tonya Pope(the lady leading the project.)

Here's the link to the article:

Yet the layout is most likely the reason why only two of these were sold.
