these issues though it still holds up well as a family coaster. It starts
out with a couple of the traditional mouse turns. These them self aren't
that thrilling, but they give you a good chance to take in the view of the
sea and the pier. After that it's on to two of the rides main drops, that
for a family coaster pack a surprising amount of punch.
It's at this point that the rides main novelty (although how much does a
novelty have to be used before it stops being a novelty) kicks in as the
spinning mechanism is set free. Here part of the fun is your not quite sure
what to expect. I've had times when I've been treated to some mad spinning,
other times the spinning has been more sedate, but I've taken the bumps
facing backwards. Whatever happens though this ride always delivers a nice
level of fun and thrills.
With so many spinning mice about it would be easy to start overlooking them,
but it does say something about there enduring appeal that this is still a
ride that tops my to do list when I visit the pier.
