After your carried 207 feet, then dropped 196. Your ready for 5460 feet of hill after hill going a blistering 75 m.p.h. This ride has more airtime ,in my opinion, then "Shivering Timbers". And the ending line of bunny hills has enuf air time to hook you for life. The first three hills have the perfect air time; time. It truly is one of my favorite steel, out and back, green and yellow, One tunneled, thats in Minnesota, roller coasters. You can't get enuf of "Wild Thing", at Valleyfair! If you like magnum XL-200, you'll love "Wild Thing" to death!!!!!!!

I really enjoyed Wild Thing. A fun coaster. Not anywhere near the best Steelie in my humble opinion, but a great, albeit relatively harmless, ride. I did indeed LOVE the final camelbacks after the brake run. When Wild Thing was first built, it had a very small tunnel. When I rode it in '98, it had a very long tunnel which gave the false impression that the first drop after the brake run was underground. It felt VERY deep.
There are better rides...SD2K comes to mind, but I have a space in my heart for Wild Thing. I just wish it wasn't named something quite so trite...:(
;)Rollercoasters are like parrots...if you take care of them, they should outlive you;)
