Mighty Mouse is a travelling steel spinning wild mouse roller coaster owned by US carnival operator Wade Shows, Inc..

History

The coaster was previously located at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park where it operated under the name Opa until March 6, 2014, when a man fell from the ride.

Incident

On March 6, 2014 a 64-year-old man fell nearly 20 feet from the ride and was airlifted to hospital with brain injuries and multiple bone fractures. The amusement park reopened the following day but Opa remained closed.[1]

In early April, it was announced that Opa would be removed from the park after an investigation found the ride to have four code violations.[2] The ride was purchased by Wade Shows, Inc.[3] and debuted in June 2014 after a new lighting package was installed.
