Hersheypark Shares New On-Ride Video for Wildcat's Revenge

February 4, 2023, 4:58 PM · Hersheypark has released its first full on-ride POV render for its new Rocky Mountain Construction coaster.

Wildcat's Revenge will open this summer - 100 years after the debut of the park's original Wild Cat coaster. The new ride will be an RMC rebuild of the Hersheypark's 1996 Wildcat, a Great Coasters International wooden roller coaster.

Wildcat's Revenge will feature three custom-decorated trains [Hersheypark Goes Wild With Its New Coaster Trains] on its 3,510 feet of IBox track, reaching a top speed of 62 miles per hour after an 82-degree drop from its 140-foot lift hill. Along the way, riders will experience four inversions, including what the park is calling the "World’s Largest Underflip," an inversion that begins with an upward climb, followed by a counterclockwise 270° roll and a dive down towards the side.

Someone should teach Hershey how to use NoLimits. Looks like the forgot to enable physics and just held down the W the entire time

Looks fun! I wonder how it compares to IG ?

While it doesn't look like the best RMC IBox, it does look like an above average ride from them and on the more intense side. I've got a strong feeling this will be the new favorite of Hersheypark. However, I wish the video made it look more like a roller coaster.

I really like the layout. Has a nice symmetry after the big opening act with the sideways airtime turnarounds alternating with the stall and camelback, and I love the extended finale with the two rolls in and out of the helix next to the midway. Count me in the minority of folks more excited for this than ArieForce One.

This POV has me genuinely intrigued in this coaster. The transitions appear far smoother and less jolting than many similarly sized RMC conversions. I know a lot of people love all those quick pops of air, particularly at the ends of rides, but I get tired of all that repetitive ejector pretty air quickly, so the smoothing out of these elements throughout the course appeals to my preferences.
