A friend asked me to see if anyone here knew anything about this;
He was just at job training in Altoona and dropped by Lakemont for a few quick rides and noticed their Mad Mouse was gone. How long has it been gone and does anyone know why it went, where it is now, etc?
Actually, I was talking to Duane (he is RCDB) a month or so ago. (mostly because RCDB said the coaster was still there and I was rather surprised to find it gone ;) )
Straight from Duane's mouth (errr, keyboard):
"I'm told they sold it to a carnival operator that is new to rides so this Mad Mouse will be his first roller coaster. I'm a bit confused why the park sold it. The operator of the Little Leaper mentioned something about an accident on another wild mouse at a nearby fair or something."
Take that for what you will.

Lakemont's wasn't a good ride? The one that was at J's Amusement Park was a great little coaster and I'm sure it didn't get as much care as the one at Lakemont. *** Edited 7/7/2004 12:33:28 AM UTC by GoliathKills***
