HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) -The world’s largest underflip is now closer to completion on Wildcat’s Revenge at Hersheypark.
On Friday, Dec. 16, Hersheypark posted photos of the first inversion on their newest coaster being constructed. This underflip will be built on some of the remaining lift hill structure left over from the 1996 Wildcat coaster.
The underflip is described as an upward climb, followed by a counterclockwise 270° roll and a dive down towards the side. The dive will take place on part of the structure that held the original, curved first drop of the 1996 Wildcat.
This bright red track is part of the 3,510 feet of track on black steel and wooden supports. The ride will open with three custom trains, which will be colored black, charcoal, and silver with fully dimensional wild cats on the front of each train. The coaster will include four inversions.
Located in the Midway America section of Hersheypark, Wildcat’s Revenge will feature a fully renovated coaster station that harkens back to the iconic 1923 Wild Cat station, which was one of the very first coasters to be built at the park. The coaster is slated to open in the summer of 2023.
