UPDATE August 23 - Cedar Point announced a couple of weeks ago that they will be opening a new Wild Mouse roller coaster in 2023. The Sandusky Register has recently published a number of photographs of track and supports arriving at Cedar Point. The track is bright orange and the supports are yellow.
The area where the Wild Mouse Roller Coaster will be located has been fenced off since mid-July and we are expecting work to commence on erecting this new coaster when the park closes for the season at the end of October. The Wild Mouse roller coaster along with the rest of the new BoardWalk area at Cedar Point is slated to open at the start of the season in Spring 2023. We will keep you posted on further updates on this exciting project when they are announced.
August 12 - We now know that the rumor that the iconic Psycho Mouse from California's Great America is being moved to Cedar Point was incorrect as Cedar Point has now announced its new roller coaster, Wild Mouse which is set to debut on opening day at the park in 2023.
The new Wild Mouse roller coaster will be located in the hugely rethemed midway area of the park which is newly name as the Boardwalk. Wild Mouse is being manufactured by Zamperla and is a new "Twister Freeform" model with cars that spin 360 degrees giving guests a different experience with each ride. There will be eight cars in total (each with four seats in), seven themed to mice and one themed to cheese which gives a comical twist and enhances the cat and mouse feel to this new coaster.
The roller coaster will be 52-foot-tall and 1,312 feet long. The minimum height restriction unaccompanied is 48 inches but with a supervising companion is only 42 inches making this a great transition coaster for younger guests. Kids can move from the Woodstock Express to the Wild Mouse, then to Iron Dragon and Corkscrew and finally ending up at the big coasters such as Millenium Force. Wild Mouse will be a great addition to Cedar Point's line up.
Cedar Point has sometimes been criticised for its lack of family friendly attractions but the new Wild Mouse roller coaster certainly shouldn't disappoint and should thrill younger guests and adults alike.
Wicked Twister closed on September 6, 2021 which was sad for many Cedar Point fans. But we think most people will agree that this newly developed Boardwalk area which aims to give a modern twist to the previous site of Wicked Twister and extend the park's family friendly attractions as well as food and beverage offerings, will be a extremely positive area for everyone to enjoy.
As already mentioned, the new Wild Mouse will sit as part of this hugely redeveloped midway area which is set to have the newly built Grand Pavilion which will house a restaurant on the first floor where guests can choose to eat inside or on the deck. It will also have further eateries, a lakeside bar, outdoor patio and three balconies, one on each side, including one with views of Lake Eerie.
Some further changes are also coming to the area including:
- Tiki Twirler will be rethemed to the classic Calypso
- Matterhorn will be relocated to the area
- Current Scrambler attraction will be rethemed as Atomic Scrambler and will be moved to the new Boardwalk area
