Wildcat is a one and done for me. If I don't get the magic seat (2nd row) I have a massive headache. I even take ibuprofen before riding in preparation.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Thanks for the opinions on the wooden coasters. Most likely I'll skip Wildcat but try Lightning Racer and The Comet.

Just watched the POV of Reese’s Cupfusion! Only real complaint is that I did not see any animatronics, but instead just cutouts of the different characters. The two big positives are that the screens seem very clear, and it is a very long ride.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I think you're cupfused. This is the greatest ride in the history of peanut butter cup themed rides.

Last time I rode Wildcat, the first couple of drops were torturous washboard, and the rest was awesome.

I'm sure it's been brought up, but Google Maps finally updated their Street View imagery of the park. It now includes Skyrush for instance, which the old Street View did not.

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

Agreed, once a visit is pretty much my tolerance level for Wildcat. But Lightning Racer is a Top 5 Woodie for me and Comet actually rides really well despite its age. Looks like I'm going to have to plan another trip to Hershey once the hyper opens. I really hope it rides like Mako because I absolutely love that coaster and was surprised by how strong the airtime was. I haven't been on Fury yet, but Mako is definitely my favorite B&M hyper.

Your legs will thank you.

Seriously, try drinking a Coke after you get a riding headache. It works for me almost every time. But, I rarely drink anything but black coffee and water, so that probably plays into it.


I've been wondering if Hershey's new coaster will be testing before West Coast Racers.

To me Wildcat has the perfect amount of roughness. No where as bad as Predator.
