Cucaracha (Spanish for Cockroach) was a steel wild mouse roller coaster previously located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA.
The coaster originally opened next to the Happy Motoring Freeway in the USA section of the park. The freeway was such a success under park guests, that Six Flags decided to build a second track, relocating Sidewinder in the process. Sidewinder ended up in the Mexico section of the park, being renamed to "Cucaracha" to fit in. Its old queue in the USA section was reused for the second Freeway track.
The coaster eventually closed at the end of the 1964 season, being replaced by El Sombrero. The queue of this replacement would be the same as the one formerly used by Cucaracha.
Single cars. Riders are arranged inline in 2 rows, for a total of 2 riders per car.
Various sources mention that Cucaracha was relocated to Forest Park. The Wild Mouse at Forest park was a Monster Mouse however, wheras Cucaracha sported the Mad Mouse layout. It is unknown if Herschell offered an upgrade to the coaster, making Coasterpedia unable to confidently state these as the same coaster.
