Death is approaching WildCat - Cedar Point

WildCat was coming to the end of its useful life. With the desired expansion to Celebration Plaza, coupled with the low ridership and increased maintenance costs, Cedar Point has decided to accelerate the removal of the ride. WildCat will be removed from the park prior to Opening Day and the materials will be sent to a recycling facility.

This expansion is one of several initiatives that will beautify the park midways and enhance guests’ experiences. Additional improvements include state-of-the-art lighting packages on Giant Wheel, Millennium Force and Power Tower, a new sound and lighting system along the park’s Main Midway and the re-painting of the Millennium Force and Blue Streak roller coasters.

Cedar Point remains committed to being the roller coaster capital of the world. New roller coasters, rides and attractions will always be a part of Cedar Point’s future.

It was a decent coaster, though nothing really horrible. It's too bad a classic is going.

I agree it is always a shame to see a classic coaster being removed.

Like the others have said it seems like it is starting to fall behind other coasters in excitement and entertainment but nevertheless it's sad to see a classic disappear.

Honestly, I would've liked if they replaced it with a custom Mack Wild Mouse coaster, but they are just using Wildcat's space for the new Luminosity show.
