R.I.P. Wildcat as Cedar Point Drops a Notch


We hate to be the ones to tell you this but Cedar Point is no longer “The Roller Coaster Capitol of the World.” The park officially dropped to the number two spot for having the most coasters in the world yesterday when it announced that the Wildcat would be torn down before opening day on May 12.

The Wildcat, with its beloved hairpin turns and overall jerkiness, had Cedar Point tied for number one with California’s Six Flag's Magic Mountain at 17 coasters each. But with only 16 coasters, CP ties with Canada’s Wonderland in Ontario in the number two slot.

It’s a sad day, truly it is. But hey—our nearby attraction still holds one numero uno accolade: The Millennium Force won the 2011 Golden Ticket award for the top steel coaster worldwide.
