Hersheypark announced a new hybrid coaster, Wildcat's Revenge, that is coming to the theme park to replace the all-wood Wildcat ride. 

The Wildcat roller coaster has been closed since July 2022, and according to a press release, the new ride will be opening up at Hersheypark in the summer of 2023. 

It is being manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) and will have a 140-foot hill, max speeds of 62 miles per hour and four inversions, which includes the world's largest underflip. 

Wildcat's Revenge will join a large list of thrill rides already at the park like Skyrush, Fahrenheit and Great Bear.

"Based on our guest feedback, we knew coaster fans would love a hybrid at Hersheypark, and we're thrilled to work with RMC on a custom wood and steel coaster with a nod to our history," Vikki Hultquist, General Manager of Attractions at Hersheypark said in a press release. 

"Wildcat's Revenge features the very best of RMC's signature thrills, including four inversions with the World's Largest Underflip, Inverted Stall, Zero-G Roll and Reversing Downhilll Roll" Hultquist continued.
