Wild Mouse was a wooden wild mouse roller coaster located at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK. It was built in-house by Frank Wright and opened in 1958.

History[edit | edit source]

The ride was modified by the Velare Brothers in the 1960s; the lift hill was extended and the first two drops were added.[1]

For the 2017 season, a magnetic brake system was added to Wild Mouse. Unfortunately, the new brake system caused the ride to face maintenance issues. Because of this, Wild Mouse was closed for the rest of the year.

In January 2018, a photograph leaked online showed that Wild Mouse had been demolished without warning. A statement was subsequently released by the park confirming that the coaster had been removed. Following its closure no wooden Wild Mouse roller coasters remain in the northern hemisphere.[2]
