Wild Mouse is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Idlewild & SoakZone in Ligonier, Pennsylvania, USA. It was the only Wild Mouse to ever be manufactured by Vekoma.

History[edit | edit source]

The ride was originally located at Wurstelprater where it operated under the name Speedy Gonzales. It was then relocated to Alton Towers where it was renamed Alton Mouse. It was removed from the park due to an accident in 1991 when two trains collided and because it could be seen outside the park.
