Wildcat at Adventure Park USA, MD now open

Wednesday, April 25, 2007 12:29 AM
I apologize if this has already been posted, but this Schwarzkopf coaster formerly at Williams Grove is accepting riders:) The only bad part I could see is that the ride has a 48" height limit.

For those who might not remember, there was a lot of nailbiting last year over whether or not the F.E.C. would have to tear it down after putting it up. The local government was claiming that permits were not applied for, while the park claimed they didn't need them since it was portable. It left the coaster in limbo for sometime.

For those of you traveling the I-70 corridor to Baltimore, (It's near Frederick) or to points east/midwest from Baltimore like Kennywood, GL, CP etc., this is an easy credit to pickup as it's right off the roadway.

She was running really smooth and pacing was great when I rode her on Sunday. Kids adore this coaster. All of them get off and get back in line to ride it again. The park owners did a great job refurbishing the coaster. Adventure Park USA is located on I70 between Baltimore and Frederick, MD.

Yes, once you reach 5' your 60" tall.

That coaster really has seen it all! The shore, the middle of the woods, etc... now Maryland ;) Nice to see it so well cared for and running again.

Eh, I might have to check it out. No new "credit" for me (rode it in two of its former locations... Williams Grove and Busch Gardens the Olde Crountry as Die Wildkatz)... but Frederick is not that far and my wife and I are always looking for new mini golf courses to try.

Mini Golf AND a coaster... not bad.

haha, I'm 5'3" as well. This coaster looks great there, so much better then when it was at WG (the paint job looked kind of sloppy and I heard it ran a bit slow sometimes) Looks like a fun little FEC, maybe I'll check it out one day.
