Wild Kitty was a steel kiddie roller coaster built by US manufacturer Allan Herschell Company previously located at Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA.

History

The ride opened at Elitch Gardens on May 27, 1995 as Wild Kitten, after being used elsewhere.

In 1999, the Wild Kitten was moved to the new Looney Tunes Movie Town under the name Great Chase. When PARC Management bought the park from Six Flags in 2007, all Warner Bros. theming had to be removed from the park. With the removal of the Looney Tunes theming, the ride was renamed Tombstone Tumbler.

In 2008, the ride was renamed Cactus Coaster. It closed after the 2012 season.

The ride was transported to Frontier City. It opened in 2013 as the Wild Kitty. It replaced a similar roller coaster with the same name.

On August 30, 2018, it was announced during Six Flags' announcement video that Frontier City would receive a new kids area named Timber Town. As part of this, Wild Kitty is to be removed at the end of the 2018 season to make way for Frankie's Mine Train, a Zamperla Family Gravity Coaster 80STD that is opening in 2019.
