I would rate it 7/10, but I guess a 4/5 will do. The sharp turns have trees next to them. The brakes at the end are jolting though.

Somewhat of a disappointment, this large wild mouse coaster was not that much fun. The large four person mice increase ride capacity, but take a bit of the thrill away from the two seat versions like at Quassy.

I&#39.ve ridden this coaster a dozen times since it was installed in 2003. I even rode it on Opening Day in 2008. But somewhere along the line a height restriction line was added so that riders six-feet tall and over are denied access. Even if you&#39.re close to six-foot (I&#39.m just under 5-11) you can&#39.t ride. Plus, the ride ops are now doing some type of leg measurement with a bent steel rod once you are seated. If you don&#39.t pass that inspection, you&#39.re gone too. So if you&#39.re 5-11 tall and weigh 185-pounds like me, don&#39.t plan on riding it. Clearly, the park needs to purchase new rolling stock to allow adults of average height and weight to ride. So the reason this coaster gets a three from me because most adult males can&#39.t ride it with the existing height restrictions in place. So much for the park&#39.s policy of encouraging parents to ride with their kids! And be warned, don&#39.t scan your Fun Card until you&#39.re sure they&#39.ll let you ride it!

The turns are wild and make you feel like you&#39.re just going to fly away, but they&#39.re really cool. The drops are literally nothing, but also, Crazy Mouse rides aren&#39.t exactly known for them. Overall, it wasn&#39.t half bad.

I am beginning to beleaive that Zamperla should give up on building coaster. this wild Mouse was Good at the very start. The zig gas was fun and offered strong but tolerable lats. but towards the ed of the top the car got a bit too fast and the lats a bit too strong. Wat should be wild ended up being painful. The second half was worse. I enjoyed the out of control realign but the lats were painful and not enjoyable. Maybe worth single ride is you want to count but other then that not worth the time or discomfort.

This is actually a pretty good mouse coaster, and Im no where near a fan of mouse coasters. The turns are tight of course, and are pretty wild. One turn actually caused my knee to jump up and hit the restraint. It hurt, but that just shows how wild a ride it can be. The curcuit is run brake free, which makes for a fast and furious ride for a mouse. The ride is merely average overall, but is a lot higher than what I would give most.

One year ago I hated this ride. It flat out just hurt like crazy. This year I gave the ride another chance and had a much more pleasurable experience. Located to the far left side of Rye Playland, this purple Zamperla wild mouse sits. With many small, attractive-looking, 4-seat mouse cars, the Crazy Mouse looked very fun. Adding to its appearance were many trees circling the ride. Generally the Crazy Mouse is a walk-on. Boarding the car, you lower a lapbar and you are loaded and dispatched very quickly. Soon, you roll out of the station and begin a slow climb up the 35ft lift hill. After last years painful ride, this year I decided to brace myself for each turn by leaning to the sides of the cars and boy did that help. That actually allowed me to enjoy the ride. You then go around many hairpin turns and go back and forth. Unlike other wild mice, they dont brake these turns which allow for a wilder ride. You then travel around a U-turn and approach the first drop which was very smooth. Then the car flies up a small hill and whips around a hairpin turn, which was very painful last year, but not nearly as bad this year. Afterwards, there were a few bunny hills before reaching the brake run. Before the brake run there is a sign that warns you of the sudden stop caused by the brakes. Its not that bad as long as you brace yourself for it, but if you didnt I cant imagine how painful it would be. Overall, the Crazy Mouse was much better this year than last year. Though not as good as the Mack wild mice, this one still is good for a ride or two while at Playland. Overall, a good wild mouse coaster that can be rough and aggressive if you dont brace yourself for the turns.

I like these kind of rides, but this one was the weakest IMO. Dont get me wrong--its still sort of fun, but I like the one at Myrtle Beach Pavilion better.

It was okay. I especially liked the quick drops at the end. The turns were cool because they make it feel like you are going to fall off. The problem is that I know that there are guide wheels preventing that from happening. Take someone that doesnt know that and get a real laugh. LOL

The turns were vicious. But I would have liked steeper drops, like on the older monster mouse rides.
