The Roto Jets are a flat ride. They are fast, fun,rerideable, they have a large capacity, and a long duration.

The Roto-Jets are a great flat-ride entertaining mostly children along with adults. Located towards the middle of the park near the Hand Stamp building, the Roto-Jets is surrounded by trees. A classic ride that has served the test of time, the Rojo-Jets have a red paint job for all the rockets. Each rocket can hold up to 2 riders and there are 12 rockets. Generally there are many single riders creating an even lower capacity. Also, the rides base has a great lights at night. Despite their low capacity, Roto-Jets are a walk-on. Taking a while to load, youre restrained by a seatbelt on the Roto-Jets. Once the ride begins, you are hurled around the tower gaining speed creating some powerful laterals. Then you can control the rockets height with a black lever. I enjoy the lower levels because you go faster down there and there are strong laterals. It went higher than I expected. During the ride you come close to some trees. Also, you get a very long ride cycle. Overall, an excellent classic ride entertaining riders of all ages. The Roto-Jets are better than Hersheyparks Starship America. Anyone who enjoys these roto-jet rides shouldnt miss the Roto-Jets.

Highly enjoyable, this ride lets you pilot your own red airplane 2 stories in the air. I love that sensation. one problem. this ride was slightly uncomfortable, probably because it makes you go to the side of your plane. Another awesome classic ride at Knoebels.

This is a real OK ride... its fun to ride when youre like 8, but when you get to the big guys, this doesnt seem that interesting, but still a mildly fun ride to ride with some little cousins or something.

Great classic ride, though a little unconfortable for the older one. The jets can get some good height on them, which the rider can control.

Dude, this is a pretty awesome ride. I love going on this and Im 15 years old! Just a plain treat for anyone who relishes in Knoebels, for in my opinon, this sums up what Knoebels is all about: good, old-fashioned family fun.

What? No ones rated the Roto-Jets? Well, let me be the first. Its a rare thing to ride one of these relics from the atomic age, and a delight. The jets lift higher than you might expect, and the steam release sound effect upon lowering is a treat. For historic appeal and charm, I give it an 8.
