inverted wild mouse video

Tuesday, December 18, 2001 8:48 AM
I remember a discussion of inverted wild mouse coasters, but no one knew of an example. Here is a link to a video of a portable inverted wild mouse called 'ala delta'.

Looks like it banks some on the turns unlike a conventional mouse.  Really neat.  Who is running this thing?

it travels around fairs in Spain, I think. If you can deal with spanish, check out www.latincoasters.com to see plenty of nice pictures of this coaster. It actually has a hinge and shocks with a joint, much like an Arrow suspended.

Here is a link to a first person video to those who can't read any spanish and don't want to blindly search a website...

there are other nice portable coasters such as a Cyberspace (Maurer Sohne spinning coaster), and weird ones (look for the twin shuttle coaster which looks like a dueling Schwarzkopf pirate ships, using tracks instead of swings.)

Interesting point... I am not sure on the arrowBATic, I think it is supposed to be a fixed joint, since it has two sets of wheels, right? I can't get to the Arrow website anymore so I can't check, but I think I remember in the animation it had 4 wheels, and 2x2 seating rather than 4 in a row. Of course there were 2 arrowbatic models depicted, but neither had 'wild mouse' type layouts like this one does. If the arrowbatic had a hinge joint.... I think any inversion would be hard on the joint. Since the track is banked it probably doesnt swing much, like current Arrow suspendeds.

I just found out it is made by Reverchon, and there is a permanent model...

That video is great! I just played it for everyone at work. What a neat ride! All they need to do is enclose the thing.

I always thought an arrowBATic was like a regualr coaster, only with shorter trains and inversions and stuff... goes to show what i know... :( :'(

Actually arrowBATic cars have two seats in the front row & three in the back row.

Here are some pics for the curious. BTW, it sure looks like NoLimits was used to create these shots. :)

The coaster in the video is a Reverchon gliding coaster, which I believe is the only type of inverted mouse currently in operation.  FYI, this is the coaster that is the basis for the inverted mouse in Rollercoaster Tycoon.

** Edit ** - I guess djansi beat me to it!  Sorry, I didn't see the end of your last post until after I submitted mine.
