Jetpack is a power-up in Subway Surfers. When collected, the character goes flying high into the air, and is invincible to everything. The player can also stack up on coins that are up in the sky. Like other power-ups, they can upgrade the Jetpack in the shop for a longer duration time, which means they can collect more coins if they time it correctly.


  • The player cannot duck or jump while using a Jetpack, or even lose the game, nor can they activate any hoverboards.
    • However, they can still pause and exit the game as usual.
  • The Jetpack used to be blue, but now it's green.
  • If you use a Coin Magnet while the Jetpack is active, the coin magnet will do its job, which is to collect coins, but the process will take place in the sky.
    • It will still collect the first few coins on the ground before reaching the sky.
    • You can complete the mission which requires you to stay on the same lane for a few seconds with this strategy.
    • Using a 2X Multiplier or a 10+Multiplier when a Jetpack is active is also a good strategy as a Jetpack can let you collect lots of points without any disturbances.
  • If you use the super sneakers or a hoverboard while the Jetpack is active, their time limits will be paused or not until you land.
  • There is a possibility that the jetpack can be made out of flames.
    • They are similar to the 'flames' that appear when you crash while on a Hoverboard.
  • A few glitches can be achieved with the Jetpack, check the Cheat Guide for more info, here are some of them:
    • When using a Jetpack, right when you collect the last coin, swipe up (jump) and you can jump while in the air and land further than just falling from the jetpack and also have a chance to land on places you can't normally access or maybe even on trains.
      • Doing this when using the Super Sneakers will let you jump even higher.
    • Another glitch also involves collecting the last coin. Right after you collect the last coin, pause the game and resume it again, then swipe to the other lanes and you will discover that your camera is stuck at the lane where you collected the last coin.
  • The Jetpack is focused on collecting coins, like the Coin Magnet, with the exception that you do not have to worry about any obstacles - but the bad thing is that you'll miss any 'good' stuff that might appear while you're in the air, such as a key
  • The coin rows are very much longer and closer to each other than on land. 
  • Using a Mega Headstart or a Headstart is similar to using the Jetpack, but with no coins in the air.
  • When the Jetpack is about to wear out, its time limit will flash until you collect the last coin.
    • The hoverboard's time limit also flashes, but only after the board wears out as cooldown time.
    • The cooldown time was removed in the Transylvania Update, making the Jetpack end almost instantly as you collect the last coin.
  • There is a similar reference to the Jetpack in the Subway Surfers TV series.
  • In a later update, the pitch for coin collecting while in a Jetpack was slightly lowered.
  • If you activate a headstart while on the jetpack the powerup are over the trains
