Hersheypark have announced that their beloved ride of Wildcat will close for good on 31 July, 2022.

The ride originally opened on 26 May, 1996 and has given over 16 years of service to the roller coaster community in America and worldwide.

Although the attraction will cease in its current guise, rumours are abound that the fabled cat maybe given a restoration.

Rocky Mountain Construction, a potential constructor of a future facelift of Wildcat, did nothing to dampen rumours when the company stated ‘we have some ideas’ on a recent Instagram Q&A session.
