This was my very first hyper coaster and when it first came out it was sweet. But now the once smooth track is now bumpy and over braked. It also slows down right before it drops. But dont get me wrong this ride is still very fun. The airtime on the second hill is the longest in the world and very fun. the turn around is differnt then most hypers but is cool because you go over the go carts around Skyscrapper and zooming past Steel Venom. The head chopper before the tunnel is great. Not the best Hyper but still fun.

Sorry folks, but it just doesnt compare with other hypercoasters. Looks similar to Steel Force (Dorney) but is not nearly the ride. Its big and its fast but its rough and doesnt provide nearly the airtime that it should. The front absolutely stinks. Also the train stalls at the top of the hill decreasing the thrills.

My second hyper coaster and number 3 on my list. Incredibly smooth and fantastic airtime. Unfourtanatly there is none on the third hill. My favorite part is probably tht unique turnaround.

A fantastic roller coaster! Its extremely smooth. The only negative thing about it is that the initial drop is not high enough. Besides Goliath it is the best hypercoaster ive ever been on.

A pretty good ride. alot of airtime i should say. the front seat i didnt enjoy as much jus cause of the hangtime over the first hill, and their isnt as much airtime as in the othr seats. the back seat is the best with plenty of airtime. overall, its a good coaster

Great drop at the beginning followed by another startling drop. The great part about this ride is how smooth it is. Overall, tons of fun.

I really like wild thing but they trim the brakes so you dont get much air. Just went on it again and the brakes were on very light and it was a lot more fun.10

WT is an all around great coaster. The 200ft drop is wicked, and the weightless 2nd hill rocks (front seat seems to get the best effect here because you get pushed over by the back of the train coming down the 1st drop). The block brakes before the camel-backs really kill the ride. I was lucky enought to experience WT with them off and the camel-backs were oh so much more intense. Since they rarely turn these off (usually only during employee ride nights), it gets a 9 instead of a 10.

The key for this ride is to catch it on one of those brakeless nights and it will run just as great if not greater(with the exception of a handful) then any other coaster in the country.
Granted, for legit reasons this isnt always the case but if you ever have the opp to catch a brakeless ride on this beast youll understand the rating.
