New trains for Wildcat at Lake Compounce

Wildcat Tain Lake CompounceBristol, Connecticut, USA

December 5, 2016 – Lake Compounce announced that Wildcat, the park’s landmark wooden coaster, will replace the old PTC (Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters) three-bench trains with GCI (Great Coasters International) Millennium Flyer trains for the 2017 season.

The new trains are part of an ongoing improvement process to the classic woodie that opened in 1927 at America’s oldest amusement park. Although Wildcat has undergone structural refurbishment and retracking for the past five years, this is the first major upgrade since the installation of individual seat belts, queue air gates and magnetic brakes in 2007.
