WATCH: Hersheypark unveils first-person look at Wildcat’s Revenge

Hersheypark has revealed the official video for the highly anticipated Wildcat’s Revenge, showing for the first time the full track layout of the upcoming hybrid coaster in first person






Hersheypark has revealed the official video for the highly anticipated Wildcat’s Revenge, showing for the first time the full track layout of the upcoming hybrid coaster in first person.

After an announcement last year that the GCI-manufactured Wildcat’s final ride at Pennsylvania’s Hersheypark, would be closing in its current format at the end of July after 25 years in operation. Sadness turned to joy, however, when it was revealed that Rocky Mountain Construction was behind a reimagining of the ride to open in 2023.

Set to be the park’s 15th coaster, Wildcat’s Revenge is a converted hybrid wood and steel coaster that will reach speeds of up to 62mph (100kmph), with four inversions and an 82 degree drop from 140ft (42.7m) in the air. The ride will feature the world's largest underflip inversion, which Hersheypark says will ascend upwards before the train twists counterclockwise into a 270-degree roll before descending. The ride will run over 3,510ft (1,070m) of track, with one ride taking two minutes and 36 seconds.

The ride’s trains were unveiled at the 2022 IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida. The trains featured a wildcat bursting out of the front of the ride, with black, charcoal and silver colouring.
