And if you care to do Laff Trakk, you can get that miserable queue out on the first night (unless you rope drop it the next day).

It has become a rough ride. They should just do a Cedar Fair style RMC, which is one where they keep as much track as possible. Especially b/c they already have a classic out and back woodie and a racing twister coaster.

I beg to differ. In my opinion, Wildcat is not unbearably rough. I think all it needs is a re-tracking.

Wildcat is the PERFECT candidate for the RMC treatment in my opinion. The park has several other (actually good) woodies, and Wildcat's layout is pretty bland and has some nice potential for a cool hybrid. It would also fit in the lineup perfectly, and there aren't any other RMCs immediately nearby. I think it's only a matter of time.

Update from today - the B&M hyper is looking good!

Station, transfer and brake run track, along with the three maintenance bays have been installed.

Really will be the Fury for Hershey Park - can sense the scale of the ride when walking to the entrance already!

Nice update! Having these two hypers next to each other will be great.

The ultimate coaster show down. Intamin vs B&M. Crazy thing is both hypers will be next to each other in the same park. Seems like something I would do in RCT2.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
