After riding Lightning Racer, it seemed only fitting to ride Wildcat, another wooden coaster built by Great Coasters International.   This coaster is a twister with a pretty good amount of airtime.  I think that I liked the first drop of 85 feet on a right-banked curve a little more than I liked the first drop on Lightning Racer but otherwise found this ride to be less enjoyable.   Compared with Lightning Racer, Wildcat is a very rough ride.    At one point I felt as if I were suffering from whiplash.  Like Lightning Racer, this ride has a single seatbelt for each row.  One thing I particularly liked about this coaster is the fact that a horn sounds as the train is returning to the station.  An OK ride but nothing to write home about.   2 ½ out of 5 stars.   For more information about rides at Hershey Park, visit www.hersheypark.com/
