The Wild One

Six Flags America

Project Type: overhaul

The blue train for The Wild One is at PTCI for winter overhaul during the 2017/2018 winter season.

In 2017 The Wild One celebrated its 100th birthday! Originally in 1917, The Wild One was built in Nantasket Beach, Massachusetts at Paragon Park as The Giant Coaster. Through the years the coaster encountered two fires and was redesigned by both Herbert P. Schmeck and John C. Allen. It operated at Paragon Park until 1984 when it was sold to Wild World, later to become Six Flags America. The Wild One features 2 PTCI trains comprised of 4 cars each in the three seat articulating style.
