Speedy Bob is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Bobbejaanland in Lichtaart, Antwerp, Flemish Region, Belgium. Opened in July 2, 1998, it was originally paired with a mirror-image roller coaster that was removed in 2008.

The remaining roller coaster is a non-standard Mack Rides wild mouse model, as the lift hill is on the left hand side of the unit.

History[edit | edit source]

Speedy Bob was originally opened on July 2, 1998. It consisted of two Mack Rides Compact Mobile Wild Mouse units that were mirror images of each other. After the 2008 season, one half of the ride was closed and sold to Parque de Atracciones de Madrid in Spain, where it now operates under the name Vértigo.
