“Park spokesman Bryan Edwards says the Wildcat won’t run again until the cause of the problem has been determined. The state Department of Agriculture inspects amusement park rides. A spokeswoman there says inspectors suspect a problem with the ride’s track.”
Wildcat is a 1979 Schwarzkopf Wildcat. I guess they weren’t too inventive with the name. It’s only 50 feet tall and maxes out at 40 mph. Due to a slow moving line, I skipped it when I was at Cedar Point in ’06. It’s small by today’s standards, but looks like fun. Hopefully they’ll find out what caused the problem, fix it, and get it back up and running.
