Let me just say this... I have been on a Reverchon mouse, a MACK mouse, and this Arrow mouse. And overall, I would have to say that this Wild Mouse is the best that I have ever been on, in my opinion. However, others might not enjoy it as much as I did. Looks This coaster is gorgeous. The colors are gaudy while not being out-of-place, and finally there is a wild mouse coaster without those ugly as crap latticework supports! A single, consolidated pole is much better-looking and a lot less tacky than a bunch of latticework, and the support structure is somewhat intriguing because a single pole will have arms coming out of it from all angles supporting 2 or 3 different parts of the track! The trains are colored to stick out among the forest of yellow support poles, which makes it quite an interesting sight from the road. Finally, as is with everything else at Michigan's Adventure, the landscaping is phenomenal, with flowers and trees lining the queue and the rest of the ride. Experience The cars on this ride are well-built with stadium seating (that really makes a HUGE difference) and extremely smooth tracking. The upper part of this wild mouse is OK, the very first turn after the lift hill being quite scary. As for the rest of the top, it is a bit harshly braked, but that's not what really shines (or sucks) about this ride anyway. Right after the last hairpin curve is a banked spiral into a jerkingly steep drop, which seems to me to be the ride's signature element, producing a LOAD of airtime at quite a surprise! This point is when the awkward track work begins though. The drops are very jerky, and the curves start out flat like above, but then they actually bank in the middle and then become flat again, all in the middle of a circular curve. This produces some strange G forces, and can be quite neck-snapping, moreso than the curves on top. Not all will enjoy it. Another odd aspect is that the final curve is perfectly banked, with a smooth lead-in and lead-out at a high speed! It's almost as if Arrow finally learned how to build curves right but didn't want to change what they had already designed! Overall It may be jerky but the stadium seating and the beautiful colors and landscaping make up for it, so I am going to recommend this ride as long as you don't mind getting thrown about every which way, in some cases quite violently. This coaster

This ride is really nothing to special. The ride itself has a few good points like the twist and turns at the top but other than that i would say its a fairly boring ride. The line for this coaster is extremly slow because they have like 4-7 trains running with 4 people in each train. The line often takes longer then say Shivering Timbers. I rode this a couple times but i find that it just waist valuable park time that could be spent riding better rides or hey even visiting the water park. If you have a little kid they will surely like this ride, but for the me the lame ride experience and long wait line is the nail in the coffin!

Although I only have one other wild mouse coaster to compare Mad Mouse to, this is one of the better ones out there. Mad Mouse has a similar layout to any other coaster of its type, so you know what to expect. After the hill, there are some nice hairpin turns. In one direction, you think you're going to fly into the parking lot, and in the other direction, you think you're going to fall into the midway. I used to be angry at all the brakes on this ride, but from experience, I now know that if you hit a hairpin turn to fast, it will be painful. After the upper level of hairpin turns, you curve down into the rides lower level of turns and bunny hops. The air time on this ride is really nice, but the turns are a little weak. Overall, this is a good ride, but it's right at the front of the park, so the general public flocks to this ride and the lines can get over a half hour long. Mad Mouse is worth at least one ride, but it's better to wait until afternoon when the line has died down.

I love mad mouse for the sheer pleasure of being a kid. The color scheme is so fun and its all so playful. It isn&#39.t scary but when you throw in the little bunny hills and jerky turns that look like you might run right off the edge it can be somewhat thrilling for the younger crowd. It&#39.s short, but packed with fun.

Let me just say this ride is the best looking wild mouse out there hands down. The color scheme is sweet and the unusual looking supports look very cool from the midway.The scenery around this ride is amazing and is covered in flowers and plants. One of the cooler things about this ride is the queue which is right next to the 3-point challenge so the people have something watch while theyre waiting. Now to the ride the capacity is very low which is why it didnt get a ten. The cars are two rows of two across and feature stadium seating which is nice. You start out going up a fairly steep lift hill and make a quick falling turn to the right and start the 5 hairpin turns. You then do a curving drop into a diving drop and then break, you then turn and do another diving drop into a turn. After the turn you do two camel hump hills and finish the ride with a trick track and a small drop. Overall a very good mouse style ride, that is much better than the Moser or Mack style wild mouses found at other parks.

Its pretty good,a little gerky but theres
some good air time. Theres usualy realy long waits and
once you get to the front line you have to wait for the other cars to get unloaded and reloaded.Though the ride is short
its pretty Good thats why I gave it a 10.

Made by Arrow, the same company that brought us MiAds first coaster, the Corkscrew, Mad Mouse is a pretty decent coaster. While it doesnt have a lot of airtime, it has a lot of little hills that slightly pop you out of your seat.

More like the Generally Unamused Mouse. Not fast at all, quite jerky at times, and uncomfortable restraints. The best part is the large fan curve into the drop after the set of hairpins, and the trick-track near the end. If you miss it, you shouldnt cry [unless youre a credit ho].

nothing extra special about this mouse and its slow loading, just a average ride. I didnt get the air others are talking about and the hairpin turns were just typical for a mouse
