Wild Mouse


The Wild Mouse is a Wooden roller coaster located at Pleasure Beach, Blackpool in Blackpool.

Opened in 1958, it's one of only 5 remaining wooden Wild Mouse coasters left in the world and is held in very high regard as one of the finest and most extreme examples of Wild Mouse coasters.

Begun in 1955, both the design and construction of the Wild Mouse was done entirely in-house by the Pleasure Beach.

Designed by Frank Wright and opened in 1958 it was the first major ride to be built at the Pleasure Beach since WWII.

The ride was subsequently modified in 1960s by the Velare Brothers (the originators of Sky Wheels and Space Wheels).

The top circuit preceding the switchbacks, containing a big drop and a shallower dip, was added making the ride about 1/3 longer.

Apparently this change was inspired by a similar alteration of the Velare's Wild Mouse at Nu-Pike in Long Beach, CA, USA.
