Marble Madness is a steel wild mouse roller coaster at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England, UK. Built by Maurer AG, the ride opened on June 27, 2014. It previously operated at Flamingo Land from 1997 to 2012.
History[edit | edit source]
The Wild Mouse received recorded audio announcements (in a squeaky mouse voice) in 2007. The following year, the station building was changed and the ride received a new paint job (blue track with orange supports).
In early 2013, Wild Mouse appeared on Zamperla's used rides website. It was later sold to Pleasurewood Hills. The name was revealed to be Marble Madness on February 5, 2014. The ride was renovated, with the track being repainted orange and the supports purple. It reopened on June 27, 2014. It is located on the former spot of Fireball, which has been relocated within the park.

Trains[edit | edit source]
Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car. As part of its relocation to Pleasurewood Hills, the cars were repainted yellow and model eyes were added to the front.
