In 1996, Hersheypark built the Wildcat, a cyclone-like twister featuring a towering lift hill and track that weaves in and out of itself twenty times during the course of the ride. It was the first coaster to be built by newcomers: Great Coasters International who are known for building world-class wooden twister coasters including Hersheypark's magnificent Lightning Racer. The ride is themed to resemble the old time twisters that were well known back in the 1920's and 1930's. The ride gives you plenty of airtime (up-off-your-seat thrills) throughout the course of the ride and no part of the track is straight!
