GCI Confirms Millennium Flyer Trains for Hershey's Wildcat

Will the new trains on Wildcat be at Hershey in time for Springtime in Hershey?

^I'm not sure.
This may be a stupid question, but...
Will the trains alone make Wildcat as smooth as other GCI's, or does the track and layout have something to do with it being a little rough?

I would assume that the coaster will open with the new trains since the track and braking systems likely have to be modified for the Millennium Flyers. Of course, it's possible the coaster might not open when the rest of the park opens for the season.
^If they were testing WC with trains borrowed from LR late in the 06 season & it worked then there should be no problems having it ready by opening day.
Did the test with LR trains? I was at HP almost every week in 06, including all 3 weeks of Hershey Park in the Dark and I didn't notice the Racer's trains at Wildcat?

Maybe, maybe not. If it doesn't, at least the coaster will be throwing you around and trying to beat you up in the most comfortable trains on earth.

"Yes... well... VICTORY IS MINE!"
^^^ I think it will depend on GCII getting the trains built in time. Don't forget that they're building six trains this year- more than they ever have. If you've ever been to GCII while they're building trains, you'll know that a LOT of work goes into them.
I remember riding two coasters with different style trains. CLPs Blue Streak was one. The other was the KW Racer. Years ago it had Vettel type trains with fixed bars like those on the Jack Rabbit. Now it has PTC trains with seat dividers and nonratcheting buzz bars.
