You’re not going to believe this, but the massive wooden roller coaster you’re about to ride was built in 1917. You’re about to see why sometimes the classics stick around for a reason. Of course it has been redesigned and lovingly restored many times since then. But now’s your chance to dart around like countless coaster fans before you through history, on this classic, tall wooden structure.
You can’t miss this beautiful, iconic, sprawling piece of wooden architecture on any map of Six Flags. Its ridiculously long form cuts right through the center of the park. At 96 feet tall and zooming over the tracks at 45 miles per hour, this whooshy race over the rails is as classic as it gets.
The time-tested wooden design guarantees maximum airtime on a series of hills. You won’t believe how ultra-smooth the action is through a 450-degree helix. But quality is the number one reason The Wild One has stood the test of time.
The very long layout will give you the sense of a never-ending joyride through space. And when you think about it, given the history of this colossal classic, you’re really traveling through time itself.
Temperatures must reach at least 40° for this ride to open.
