Wildthing is a hyper coaster at Valleyfair! It has impecible air time and the ending bunny hills, or camelbacks, have such a long strtch of air time that you can't begin to thing that your ever going to come down! Wildthing made my heart sing!!!!!!!

Wild Thing is the saving grace of Valleyfair! (and the Power Tower).
I love the airtime hill on Wild Thing (2nd hill) It is amazing. But I was a little disappointed with the bunny hops. They gave good air, but not great air. The bunny hops on Mamba @ WoF are better. Take the first 2 drops from Wild Thing, and the helix and 2nd half of Mamba, then combine them, and you would have one hell of a coaster. It could easily be my favorite.
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) The Legend
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

Wild Thing was if I remember correctly in 1996 was the tallest hyper in the upper-midwest. It would be even better if it was higher than 207 could have been 230 or how about 275. But it had to be shorten due to Flying Cloud Airport. I love the 2nd hill and going down in the s-turns no trim brakes would be nice going into the bunny hops and there could have been more bunny hills. Wild Thing I think is one of the best steel coasters out there I'm surpprissed it hasnt gotton a raiting yet. I love Wild Thing it is a very smooth ride, as of today I have been on Wild Thing 65 times because I work at VF 8 yrs. I would like to see a NO FLY ZONE over Valleyfair because it seems like everytime they want to get a high ride or coaster its always shorten which makes me mad at times. Example Power Tower was originaly planned for 300 feet but it had to be down to 275 that stinks! Do you think they should have a no fly zone over Valleyfair would they ever win one?
Inverted coaster coming soon to Valleyfair!
