Wild One, Six Flags America - Review

Wild One - Review

Six Flags America

Ride Facts and Info

An old classic out-and-back woodie, originally built in 1917, but redesigned in 1932. The ride was relocated to Six Flags America in 1986.


Ride Layout

The ride's first drop is just under 90 feet and features a small turn to the right at the top. The second hill is a medium sized bunny that dives underneath part of the Typhoon Sea Coaster producing a nice headchopper effect on the left-hand side. There then follows a double-up, which leads into a slightly banked right-hand turnaround, which I found to be pleasantly fast.

Next there's a double-down which didn't produce much airtime in the front. However, the following bunny featured some nice air, laterals and a headchopper, as it takes a slight turn to the left as it travels under the Typhoon Sea Coaster. There then follows two larger hills both produce some nice air in both the front and back seats.

The last part of the ride consists of two almost non-existent dips, one that features a little turn. There then follows a trim brake before a turn that leads into a helix finale. The ride picks up quite a lot of speed here and features some good laterals.


Ride Evaluation

Wild One is a old style woodie with several moments of good air. I rode in both the front and back seats, and the back was a more thrilling. The ride was quite smooth throughout, possibly except for the helix, which I would have imagined could have been quite rough without the trim brake. The total ride experience is enjoyable and certainly worth waiting for.
