While I am missing what makes many people rave about its neighbor, Shivering Timbers, I am also missing what makes so many people dislike Wolverine Wildcat.

The first time out, the tunnel surprised me. The speed is fast, especially on the sections after the first turnaround. As for the "painful" comments.... this is a "front seat" ride... the back of the train can be a bit bone jarring.

I rode twice, once in front and once in back. You really dont feel much from the front. You get a little bit of air from the back and better feel the changes of direction. The double up and double down are not done well at all.

This ride is great for the size that it is. The hills are good sizes with double ups and downs present on some, it has a tunnel, good air time and a good helix. It also has nice scenery also. This coaster is smooth in the front. The Wolverine Wildcat is a wood, double out & back roller coaster. It was built by Dinn & Summers. It was designed by Curtis Summers in 1988. It is 80' tall, It is 3,000' long. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Times ridden: 1 ~ Ride experience: 7 ~ Layout: 9 ~ Thrill factor: 8 ~ Airtime: 7 ~ Landscaping: 9 ~ Evaluation: Wolverine Wildcat gives a ride experience thats not found on many coasters. The ride features a twisted layout comprised of plenty of drops, turns, a tunnel, and a rare double up and double down on one of the many hills. Some might consider Wolverine Wildcat to be rough, but riders who sit near the front of the train dont experience much of the roughness that the rest of the train does. Overall, its a good ride that can be turned to great with some retracking.

It is hard to believe this started out as a copy of the Phoenix. About the only thing they got right was the tunnel to the lift hill. I think they somehoe took all of the air out of the Phoenix. What a disapointment. Having only one train also makes the wait seem like forever.

Seems like it slows down to much. Its a ok ride. I liked it when the let you ride it twice in a row and the dont stop you in the station.

I didnt find it that rough at all, but I do think they slow it down too much. The ride has a nice layout, but this should not be a parks second best coaster. If MA ever gets their park built up where this is the fourth best coaster they will definately have something. Great landscaping in the line. Capacity is just one train, but this is a smaller park.

One word: Pain. Thats all I could think of after the bottom of the first drop. My back wouldnt stop hurting, and I couldnt focus on the ride. The line is way too long, and people capacity is horrible. I would only think about giving it a 2 for structure and looks, considering that there wouldnt be much there to see anyways.

In the back car, it isnt to rough, but in the fropnt it sucks. During the double down you get some great air and it has a strong layout, but it needs to be retracked and they need to find a way to make it faster to live up to its potential.

I admit upfront that I am NO FAN of Dinn & Summers and find their coasters to be the roughest, most punishing rides ever built. This one is no different. It seems to have been reprofiled to alleviate what must have been an all out assault on wheels, but Im afraid, like most of their other works, this one is destined to be "pretty to look at and deadly to ride". It is a series of punches to the gut and smashes to the sides that is anything but enjoyable. I liken it to Predator at Six Flags Darien Lake - a gorgeous - vile coaster.
