Thanks to Robert Brooks for writing
this review for me.
spinning Wild Mouse coaster adds am ‘edge’ to the more
common types of mouse rides but the novelty soon wears off.
The coaster consists of single cars that have the ability to spin and
get sent around a course of very tight hairpin bends (which can be
quite nerve racking for some of the faint hearted of us), steep drops
and a barrel of dizzy laughter. If you have the right weight
distribution in the cars you can usually get them to spin quite
furiously creating a very fun ride. On the other hand, if the
weight distribution isn’t good enough or a car enters a turn in
the wrong position you may not spin very much at all. Every ride
is different which is what makes it more interesting compared with non
spinning mice. However I would not say this is on par with the likes of
the wooden Wild Mouse at Blackpool Pleasure Beach because it just
doesn’t pick up enough speed and ferocity.
this coaster falls though is the fact that the novelty wears off after
a while, which makes re-rides not very inviting on a busy day, plus,
there a loads of these types of coaster out there now and some at the
end of piers next to the sea making them much more exciting. So,
all in all, it’s a good laugh with your mates but not one to make
a fuss about riding if it’s busy, especially seen as the
throughput on it is terrible, resulting in large queues of up to over
an hour; and let’s be honest that would be a waste of time in my
