‘Rocketman’ brings jet packs to Lake Max

July 20, 2012

A longtime Lake Maxinkuckee resident is bringing something of a technological magic carpet ride to Culver this weekend.

Ben Smith (the IV, actually -- his grandfather first bought a house on the west shore over 50 years ago) is the owner of Florida-based Rocketman, which facilitates science fiction-worthy rides on a Jetlev jet pack as much as 30 feet above a given body of water. The device was invented by Raymond Lee, who was recently bought out by Echo Unlimited. Smith, who actually works out of Chicago, decided to become an operator and about four months ago, Rocketman was born.
