Going Out in Style

It was announced in 2007 that Wildcatter would be removed from the park for a brand new attraction: Tony Hawk’s Big Spin (now known as Pandemonium). Instead of a standard ride removal, Six Flags Over Texas decided to send Wildcatter out in style. On October 2nd, 2007 the ride was imploded and eventually scrapped. The video above shows multiple angles of the implosion.
