Facts:Howard Booz purchased the jumper from an amusement park in Kansas in 1963 or 1964.  He realized that the roller coaster sat on relatively level ground in Kansas and if a common level base line could be marked on each column, the coaster could then be taken down, columns cut to the common base line and then rebuilt on level piers at a new site. Howard oversaw disassembly of the ride and it was shipped via several box cars to West Point, PA and then trucked the remaining half mile.

Based on dates and manufacturer the Jumper/Comet may have been the small wooden roller coaster at Kiddieland Amusement Park in Wichita Kansas.
