Crazy Mouse is a travelling steel spinning wild mouse built by French manufacturer Reverchon currently owned & travelled by UK showman Darren Matthews.

History[edit | edit source]

The roller coaster was manufactured in 2002 and opened the same year at Brean Theme Park in Brean, Somerset, England, UK. It operated until 2004, when it was sold and became a travelling roller coaster. It was brought back to Brean in 2006 before being replaced by a new unit.

In 2013, the Crazy Mouse was used by Mellors Group as the track system for their Ice Mountain enclosed roller coaster at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. The drop above the station was painted blue as it was visible from outside. From 2014 onwards, Mellors have used their own Magic Mouse instead.

For the reopening of Dreamland Margate on June 19, 2015, the ride operated at the park for the season.

In December 2016 the Crazy Mouse operated at Stoke-on-Trent's Winter Wonderland.[1] It returned again for 2017.

Design[edit | edit source]

The ride originally had yellow track and pink supports. The structure at the front of the ride was purple. It has since been repainted blue with white supports.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 4 riders per car.
