Wild Thing is a standard Arrow-Huss loop corkscrew roller coaster with a double out and back layout. After climbing seven stories riders will descend 64-feet into a vertical loop, followed by a turn and then two corkscrew inversions. This Arrow roller coaster dates back to 1984 when it opened at Rocky Point amusement park. It was sold at an auction in 1996 and moved to Wild Waves & Enchanted Village a year later.
