|Former names:||Joy Ride (1923)|
|Designer:||Herbert Paul Schmeck|
|Construction Supervisor:||Herbert Paul Schmeck|
|Trains:||3 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 4 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.|
|Facts:||The Wildcat was not owned by Hersheypark, but PTC. Hersheypark leased the land to PTC for a period of 15 years.|
This was the first roller coaster designed by Herbert Schmeck. He worked on roller coasters prior to the Wildcat, but as a construction manager, not a designer.
|Location:||The Wildcat's station and turn around circled the area where the Convoy is today below the Storm Runner's Heartline Roll. It then had a dog-leg shape extending west nearly to the swinging ship before heading northeast and turning around in the Trailblazer infield just south of the Storm Runner's station.|
