The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 4 seats per car for a total capacity of 16 riders.
* Notes: Based on Schwarzkopf's Medium Wildcat design. Ride footprint is 54 x 20 meters.
* Structure: Bright orange track & royal purple column supports. Train cars are stylized as blue muscle cars from the 1960s (SS Camaro, Yenko Camaro, Police Cruiser from that era, Mustang, 340 Cuda, final one is unknown) trimmed in chrome, complete with headlights.
* Elements: Riders familiar with the wildcat design are sure to enjoy this relocated coaster by the master himself.
* History: This portable german coaster was previously located at Busch Gardens Europe known as Die Wildkatze from 1976-1983, and at Playland Park, owned by Morgan Hughes Inc, from 1984-1991. From there it moved to Steel Pier across from the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey from 1994-1998 and was supposed to have opened at Williams Grove in 2000 but was delayed until the following year. Since relocated to Adventure Park USA in 2006 with the same name.

The Verdict
Riders familiar with the wildcat design are sure to enjoy this relocated coaster by the master himself. But make sure you're packing enough "heft" in your car or you might not have enough momentum to make it up one of the hills. Also you might not can find this coaster if you blink, it's nestled in the woods past the water rides.
I rate it 4 Star's
