The Roto-Jets were manufactured by the firm of Kaspar Klaus in Memmingen, Germany.  Klaus began producing these rides in 1951 or 1952, with the initial units being sold to the German showman Koch. The fifth unit produced was brought into the U.S. and exhibited under the name Roto-Jet at Coney Island (NY) and several fairs in 1953 . The first permanent installation in the U.S. was at Palisades in 1954.  Whalom purchased the Roto-Jets from Palisades Park.
