History and General Information[edit | edit source]
Fifty-one years after the demolition of the original Wild Cat, Hersheypark's first roller coaster, Wildcat debuted, bearing a similar name as reference to the first coaster. The ride is located at the back left corner of the park while another wooden coaster, Lightning Racer is located at the back right corner of the park. Wildcat was built with a curved drop to reduce nausea and features an on ride camera. Due to the extreme roughness of the ride while operating with its original Philadelphia Toboggan Company trains, its trains were replaced with GCI's Millennium Flyer rolling stock in 2007.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Wildcat is built on a hill, making it look much larger than it really is.
- During the event, "Hersheypark in the Dark", Wildcat is dubbed "Scaredycat"
