This coaster has been redone from the RCT3 ground up and is a new and very accurate version of the real thing.

I spent a lot of time making this as accurate to the original as possible including the height and velocity, thanks to the block brakes. The coaster works very well and should be extremely popular in many amusement parks. See picture and link below.

Looks good, but can we have a few closeups?

throw it in a park and test ride it. Its about as close as the real deal gets. The Wildcat uses the automobile cars while a updated version the Jetstar used rocketship bobsleds.

But I can say the peeps love this ride. It seems to attract them throughout the game.

I have never seen that ride before, but as to your version of it, I say that it looks well constructed and fun.

I had a chance to ride the Wildcat Model I they renamed the Cyclone at the NuPike in 1977. That was the first time I got to ride an Anton Schwarzkopf product and it was quite a lot of fun. By that time the Cyclone Racer had been gone 11 years.

The next time I got to ride one was at Magic Mountain California in 1980. They had an Anton Schwarzkopf Wildcat II and it was a blast. They called it "The Mountain Express".

This is accurately based on the Wildcat I and I believe they even have a link at the Schwarzkopf site, I'll have to reverify it.

Unfortunately without the block breaks the velocity/gravity are way off on the cars and track and the ride using the original track pattern on this one would not work properly. So thanks to the block breaks it approximates the look and feel.

Anyhow I enjoy riding this more than most coasters as I had the opportunity to do so and can relate that experience on this ride...hope you enjoy it.

Wow, I'd have to say that the wildcat sucks because it's a kiddie coaster and ive ridden it and why would you recreate it?

its not a waste to remake a "kiddie" coaster, it would be maybe just as hard as a big one. Just beacuse it doesnt have 7 inversions or a 200 ft drop doesnt mean we shouldnt build it. I like it.
