It is currently located at Fantasy Island where it is operating under the name Fantasy Mouse.

History[edit]

The previous colour scheme

When it first opened, the roller coaster had pink track and yellow supports and was called Magic Mouse. In 2010, the colour scheme was changed to blue track and white supports.

From October 2013 to April 2014, the roller coaster operated as "Cyclone" at Fantasy Island, within the Dubai Global Village.[1] From Christmas 2014, it has operated as "Ice Mountain" at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. For this event, a building is erected around the roller coaster and special effects added to the interior.

The ride operated as "Magic Mouse" at the Hoppings in Newcastle in June 2015 and 2016. It then operated as "Shark Bite" at BeachEast in 2015 and from July 23 to September 4 2016.

In 2017 the Magic Mouse was setup at Fantasy Island, also owned by Mellors, with the old Fantasy Mouse sign from the mouse coaster which previously operated at the park. It opened on March 18, 2017.

Design[edit]

This roller coaster can be identified by having blue track and white supports as well as brown supports at the front of the ride.
