If you're 20 years old then I doubt that you were on the 1927 version of the Wildcat.
It was rebuilt by Dinn/Summers in 1986.

I was lucky to get on the original version. It had fixed lap bars and I remember having to grab on as I was sliding up and out!
:b

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I was just calling out the special case that a significant portion of the ride was rebuilt after 1924, that's all.

I think my oldest was Wild One at SFA back in 2008. That park was such a dump and it was the only ride we were able to get on because of the poor operations. At least I have no need to go back.

Mine was rutschebanen at tivoli gardens.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I recently took my first visit to Kennywood, so my oldest coaster is now Jack Rabbit. I didn't even know how old it was until I saw the plaque in the station.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!
