Went to Hersheypark recently, 2nd to last day before Wildcat closed. The park was absolutely packed! I’ll provide notes on a few creds here:
Wildcat: I’ll be honest, I will miss this ride. Always had a soft spot for it. Obviously, an RMC renovation will likely be far superior to the old woodie...
The “stall loop” is such an awesome, yet sorta obvious idea I’m surprised it has taken this long to do. You’d think a loop/dive loop/immelman etc with an elongated upside down section would have been done before the stall itself
Not sure how long it was like this, but I remember last time I rode El Toro the brakes engaged and disengaged crazy loud. That and SV’s anti-rollback on the lift are the single loudest noises I’ve heard
The finale (everything after the stall) is unimpressive, but otherwise I think the layout will pack plenty of punch. The whippy transitions into the death roll and the outerbank over the station will probably be the best moments.
