Käpt'n Jack's Wilde Maus (German for Captain Jack's Wild Mouse) is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Eifelpark in Gondorf, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

History[edit | edit source]

The ride first opened in 1998 as the Wild Mouse at Dreamland Margate in England, United Kingdom. It was painted pink with yellow supports. In 2004, it was relocated to Loudoun Castle, where it reopened in 2005 as the Rat, with the supports repainted a dark color. It closed with the park after the 2009 season and was relocated to Holiday Park in Germany. While at Holiday Park, the ride was themed around the park's mascot Holly the Parrot and named Holly's Wilde Autofahrt. The ride closed at Holiday Park on November 1, 2016 as part of Plopsa's redevelopment of the park and was relocated to nearby Eifelpark, where it opened under the name of Käpt'n Jack's Wilde Maus on April 8, 2017.
