Great Coasters International seem to design all their rides after the famous 1920's coaster designer Harry Traver
. Wildcat was GCI's first coaster design and is an amazing experience. It twists and turns, all in a very compact space. It feels as if it is moving much faster than its 50mph. The first drop is only 85' high, but you feel like you may fall off the ride as the track curves back in on itself, ... an illusion of dropping straight down!! Though, this ride was a little too bumpy for my tastes, I will ride it again and again for the shear thrill. Installed in 1996, Wildcat features 3100' of track length and attains a speed of 45mph throughout.
Great ride, love it's roughness
It's an okay coaster, but the ride is very rough. There are some moments of airtime and swooping turns throughout. I think Hershey should give this ride the GhostRider treatment to make it better than ever, and one of their best coasters.
