July 1, 2013, Valleyfair, Minnesota
Wild Thing, located in Shakopee, is a steel out-and-back roller coaster with more than one mile of track. Its first hill is 207 feet with a 60 degree drop, and reaches speeds of up to 74 mph. Wild Thing's height was set by the FAA, due to the nearby presence of Flying Cloud Airport.
