I didn't know that there was a wild mouse coaster at Waner Bros. Movie World w/ a backwards drop...did anyone else know about this? Can anyone find pictures?

man at kennywood, if you shift all of the weight in the car to a certain side at the right time on the exterminator, the car will start spinning out of control through the whole ride and you can go backwards or side ways or any way you can think of down the 2 bigger hills. It's soooo much fun when that happens too.

I had a car spin out of control in Exterminator with a 75 lb difference between the sides. Going down a hill while spinning like mad is definitely a fun experience.

I've never been on a spinning coaster...and they look sooo fun. But which kind of spinning coaster gives the best effect? The ones with the cars that have riders turned outside, or inside? Or how about the ones where people are sitting in a semi-circle? *** Edited 8/26/2005 3:59:28 PM UTC by PeteSpeed2009***

I went on it about a month ago. Its a really great ride, very well themed and probably IMO the best ride in the park.
The ride starts off with a dark ride section where you just travel along a track round corners coming up against special effects, one is a swinging axe that just before you reach you go down a small drop and then come up the other side, this goes on for a while then you reach a vertical lift where you exit backwards and go down a pretty steep drop. The carriage comes to a stop and a turntable turns it round the other way the you go off on a typical large mouse design before there being a custom ending. Of course its all indoors with strobes and lazers in the main room.
Its pretty bad but when I was there it was the best coaster I rode out of the two Luna Parks, DreamWorld, WBMWA and Sea World. This should change with the new launched coaster though.
Its a great little park, you can walk from the entrance to the back in about 3 minutes and I think there are only 10 rides there in total!

Wow, look at the scenery effects on that ride compared to the cheap plywood cutouts of the Paramount parks Scooby Doo rides.
