Specific Type: Wooden out and back
The colonial states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York are well known for their small and guest-friendly theme parks and Clementon Amusement park is just one of those fine gems. Located in Clementon, New Jersey, the park boasts thrills for every member of the family no matter the age. One of the feature attractions is the wooden classic coaster known as Hellcat. The coaster was built and designed by S&S Worldwide and opened in 2004. The coaster was originally named Tsunami until the big tsunami in 2005 that devastated the Indian Ocean. The park decided to change the name to J2 in honor of the Jack Rabbit coaster that was standing but not operating in the park. The coaster was eventually named Hellcat when Adrenaline Family Entertainment took over the park in 2008.
Hellcat is the classic wooden small track coaster. The track is 2,602 feet of wood with a height of 110 feet. The coaster reaches a maximum speed of 56 mph and drops 105 feet at 62 degrees. The coaster is a very short ride with a ride duration of just over 1 minute and 30 seconds. The coaster trains were manufactured by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. One train is back with the company being repaired. GCI has added pieces to the coaster to make it smoother and help with longevity of the coaster. Locals call the coaster a tearjerker of a ride. Come with us now as we take a virtual journey on the classic woodie Hellcat.
As riders navigate the picnic area within the coaster, the queue leads you to the station where you enter the classic PTC train and pull down the buzz bar. The coaster turns a small corner and hits the lift hill. The standard lift hill crests and sends the train barreling down 105 feet at speeds of up to 56mph. The train rises over another hill after passing the lake and veers to the left. The train moves through a wooded area and into a high banked left turn. The coaster speeds down and into the feature element; an intense upward helix. The coaster keeps up the speed, through some bunny hops and a left turn past the station and into some major air time hills. The coaster hits the final brake run and slows back into the station.
