HERSHEY, Pennsylvania (WHTM) — Hershey Park released a wild video about their new roller coaster on Saturday.
On Saturday, the park released a computer-animated video of what Wildcat’s Revenge will look like for riders when it opens in the summer of 2023.
The ride is built using some of the old existing structures from the former Wildcat wooden roller coaster that operated at the park from 1996 to 2022. The combination of the wooden structure and the red steel track makes this roller coaster a hybrid roller coaster.
The ride will feature four inversions, according to Park: an underflip, an inverted stall, a zero-gravity roll, and an inverted downhill roll. The ride will also feature a 140-foot drop at an 82-degree angle and will reach speeds of up to 62 miles per hour. Guests will travel a 3,510-foot route in approximately two minutes and 36 seconds.
The ride recently reached a milestone when its signature element, the world’s greatest underflip, was completed. The Underflip is a unique inversion created by roller coaster designer and manufacturer Rocky Mountain Construction. This inversion begins with an upward climb, followed by a 270° counterclockwise roll and a side dive.
The roller coaster will debut this summer, 100 years after the first Wild Cat ride debuted at the park.
