Drew Expo just bought one last year, it has a few differences with the theming (themed "Matterhorn", no bear in middle), but still looks just as sharp as this one.

Someone in the Midwest I believe has a Chance Alpine Bobs rethemed as an IceJet, looks pretty good as well.

That's all of the ones I know of right now. Hopefully we will see more over the next few years.

This is a fuller size version. The one simular to P&T is Drew's Matterhorn.

Ok! I thought I had seen photos of a different Ice Jet ride. It had to be the rethemed bobs. That one at Houston looks like something you would see at a European fair.

The one in your pics was booked in by Bobby Myers. It is a chance Alpine Bob's themed as Ice Jet.

The one in the video above is a Bertazzon Bobs.

Power & Thomas's and Drew's is 16 tubs.
The one RCS had, if it was shipped beck was 20 tubes. Same size as the Rock and Roll Amusements of America has.
