Located towards the far side of CBeebies Land, guests approach the ride passing the entrance to the Big Fun Showtime Arena and The Furchester Hotel Live. Upbeat, disco style music taken from the popular Go Jetters television programme plays around the ride area, ‘contolled’ by Ubercorn who can be seen on top of the attraction’s operator booth.
Guests enter the attraction queue line making their way underneath the themed entrance which, as well as the attraction name, also features the key characters from the programme. As guests make their way along the queue, at several points there are models of significant world landmarks, each with a sign giving information about what it is and fun facts from its history.
Once at the front of the queue, guests are batched into one of the ride vehicles, each of which can hold up to four passengers, however staff may allocate fewer guests to a vehicle in some circumstances, for example if it is an all adult group. Each ride vehicle is in the shape of a Go Jetters Vroomster, and features lapbar restraints and a control lever in the centre of the front dashboard. Each vehicle also features the flag of a different country from around the world. After the required safety checks have been carried out, the ride gets underway with the vehicles rotating around the central column. Using the control lever in their vehicle, guests can control the upward and downward motion of the Vroomster during the ride cycle. Once the cycle comes to an end and the restraints released, guests exit the ride via a gate next to the operator booth.
In July 2016, a planning application for an expansion to CBeebies Land, including a ‘rotating ride’ and ‘family entertainment building’, was submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and, following the application’s approval, construction of the new attractions commenced in late 2016.
On 13th January 2017 it was announced that Go Jetters (along with The Furchester Hotel) would be joining the CBeebies Land line-up, with the addition of the Go Jetters Vroomster Zoom Ride between the existing Big Fun Showtime Arena and Mr Bloom’s Allotment.
The attraction opened at the start of the 2017 season on March 25th.
