Wild Mice, more twisted than ever before...(maybe)

Friday, January 24, 2003 3:08 PM

So what do you get when your park don't have any space left for a new ride but still want a coaster to celebrate their 120th anniversary?

When you hire Werner Stengel to design the ride and Gerstlauer to build the ride you get a wild mouse that's never looked so twisted before, untill today.

ECC has a batch of new construction pictures on their site. Go and check them out to lighten up your offseason blues a little or much.


Don't lose your heads on this one!!

Looks pretty good for a wild mouse. I'll still ride them no matter how much people hate them. Even if no is not like The exterminator. Still worth a wait!

That looks so sweet, I don't think that I have ever seen a wild mouse like that before.

lose one coaster, lose all coasters, than you will lose yourself

Disturbing is the word I'd use for it. As long as I live, I don't think I'll get over those hairpin turns on those things.

Wow! I think we've got a new generation of Mouse on our hands. Third generation sounds good to me (first is the early wood/steel, second the Macks, Arrows etc. of the 90's). It looks like it combines the flowing sort of track of the Arrows, with the intensity of the Macks (are Arrows intense?) and the charm of the Wooden ones.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

Michigan's Adventure's Arrow mad mouse is the best Non Spinning mouse I have rode (Outside of Lakemont's Herschel)

Much better then the Macks and Maurer Sauhnes I have rode.

I can just see it now...a S&S Screaming Squirrel model with rotating cars. That would be so cool, yet nauseating.

People actually hate wild mice??? I haven't been on one I didnt' like. However, many are just so so. I still haven't been on a spinning mouse. I still don't think the Wild Mouse at Blackpool Pleasure Beach can be beat. Those wooden mice have some crazy leaning action on the turns... I thought it was going to tip over.

At IAAPA convention Mack showed their new wild mouse cars that are able to tip over on the turns just like on the wooden wild mice.

In my opinion Gerstlauer looks like a promising company. They're offering great family rides and this year they introduce their more thrilling rides, Euro-Fighter. First one to open is the one at BonBon Land. Then for 2004 Bobbejaanland opens a bigger version. Booth feature a 95 degree drop.

That mouse looks very impressive. On the one pic it looks like it's intertwined with another coaster (maybe a Schwartzkopf)! http://www.coasterclub.org/en/photos/gronalund-cons-2003/img_6.shtml

I always wanted to ride a mouse ith swooping turns and banked track. It should be a fun ride!

Yes the wild mouse is interwining with a Schwarzkopf coaster, Jetline (has another name today). This is how it looked before the wild mouse was built. http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1062.htm?Picture=6

c'punk...MiA's Mouse has banked turns, and immediately jumped into the Top Tier of mice I've ridden...it was clearly the surprise hit at the park....well, along with the junior woodie (the shame about *that* ZZ is its capacity, NOT the ride)...but that Arrow Mouse was awesome, *just a notch* below the Reverchons....
