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.
