The 50s diner style theming makes this mouse unlike any other. Unfortunately, the ride is pretty typical of most other wild mice. Not my favorite type of ride. Just okay.

I would rate this as better than your average mouse, but still not up to the level of the Mack models. At least its not another Zamperla spinner, a model which I have run into far too often in the past year (jeez.. like 5 of them? good job Mark) The funky theme didnt really fit anything but I loved the randomness of it. Cant say Ive ever seen a diner-themed ride before. The turns were pretty good, even for a mouse, and I really enjoyed my ride on one of the few non-pathetic rides on the shore.

i like feeble, ridiculous attempts at theming much more than thorough, elaborate ones, so doo-wopper hit me pretty nice in that department. the "theme" kind of hints perhaps at wildwoods fabled doo-woppn, fab fifties mystique. what happens simply is this: after the short lift hill the 57 chevy youre seated in goes barrelling towards several giant two dimensional cheeseburgers, french fry bundles and milkshakes only to swerve in a vertigo inducing way 180 degrees into the other direction towards more large flat take-out food. a goofy idea indeed - i guess it is simulating what it would feel like to be shrunk down while sitting in your 57 chevy and then trying to navigate around a drive-in tray full of food. unfortunately, like most wild "mice", this one lacks delivering the sensation i think it should - the sensation of being a pinball. i suppose i should look to the compact portable schwarzkopfs for something like that. i cant help but feel though, that the ol run-of-the-mill loco ratones could provide a more white-knuckled mini-adventure they typically do.

I rode this ride at night, so maybe it gave me a little bit more of a thrill than if I were to ride it during the day time hours. When I first got into the car, I didnt quite know what to expect from this little ride. I had seen people on it all day, but it just didnt seem like it had that much, and the people on it were less than excited. The ride is a little slow, but being at night, I think that it added a little more to the speed. The turns must have had a little extra to them too, because I wasnt sure when they were coming and they were unexpected, thus giving them a fly off the track feel. Overall, it was a bit of a scary ride with the not knowing what to expect factor thrown into the mix. The lights from the piers were whizzing by with everything turns. However, it was just lacking and possibly even a little scary without knowing if we was going to be thrown off the tracks at any second because at this time I didnt really have full trust in the rides at Moreys. All and all, a decent ride that I would have to experience again to fully understand what it brings to the table.

I love wild mouse coasters but this one is way too slow and the turns dont slam you into the side of the car like they should.

A nice welcome edition in recent years. You have to applaud Moreys for helping to reinforce the "Doo Wop" look of Wildwood. I havent been on too many "classic" wild mouses (mice?), but this one sure makes me feel like Im going to fly off!

I rate the ride a 6, but give it an extra point for the theming. The turns are sharp but didnt give you that fly off the track feel.

A good mouse but not as good as others I have been on. I really liked the 50s cars for trains on this one... adds a nice touch to the theme

I dont know why this ride is so under-rated, but its actually a pretty good wild mouse. I like how it is 50s themed. Thats a nice touch.

I like the whole 50s theme to it which you dont see too much of but other then that this ride isnt too good. Its sort of slow compared to other Wild Mouse coasters and the cars are pretty uncomfortable. Ill take a mighty Mack Wild Mouse over this Zamperla fart blast any day.
