Marble Madness is a steel wild mouse roller coaster at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England, UK. Built by Maurer Rides, the ride opened on 27 June 2014. It previously operated at Flamingo Land from 1997 to 2012.
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. Faces were added to the trains. It reopened on June 27, 2014. It is located on the former spot of Fireball, which has been relocated within the park.
In November 2023, the park announced that it would dismantle and refurbish the ride. Marble Madness is expected to reopen in 2024 with a new name and theme.
Single cars. 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.
