Wild Mouse at Flamingo Land

Flamingo Land has removed its Wild Mouse roller coaster, as the park prepares to install three new attractions for the 2013 season.

It is strongly rumoured that Wild Mouse's replacement will be a Zamperla Volare flying coaster, similar in style to rides such as Time Warp at Canada's Wonderland. Two flat rides manufactured by the Italian firm are also believed to be on their way to the park.

As its name suggests, Wild Mouse is a classic “wild mouse”-style roller coaster. Up to 4 riders board its small vehicles, which are pulled to the top of its structure via a lift hill. They then navigate a series of sharp turns, before entering a section that features several small, sharp drops.

Manufactured by German firm Maurer Söhne (who are behind major rides such as Crush’s Coaster at Walt Disney Studios, Paris), Wild Mouse was originally installed at Flamingo Land in 1997. It received a makeover in 2008, in order to enable it to fit in better with the surrounding Metropolis area. It is now expected to be sold on to another park.
