A very fun ride with good variety, smoother than most Mice. Perhaps it does feel a bit structurally sketchy, but I really didn't feel that I was in any danger (that is, it didn't seem more rickety than any other coaster I've safely ridden). Their policy against single riders is strictly enforced, so beware if the other half of your car is a person of larger size...the car can be very, very cramped.

I&#39.m not a fan of the modern Wild Mouse coasters but this old style Mouse was pretty good. the layout was fun with a good variety of elements. It was a good length. Capacity is pretty low so a short lines makes for a long wait the cars are a bit small, hard for 2 adults to ride together. Overall a worth while ride and one of the parks few stand out attractions.

A fun little ride of which few examples remain anymore. The track and structure looks a bit worn... but the cars are in good shape.

This "mad mouse" ride is fun and has a truly classic feel to it. You actually get some ejector air when you reach the flat after the first drop. This ride seems very scetchy. There are no saftey restraints and the supports jiggle a lot. But that just makes the ride all the more fun.

Do you remember as a kid building those giant marble mazes with the drops, twists, and helixes and just praying that it wouldn’t collapse while the marbles navigated it? Well that’s pretty much the feeling I get during every single one of my ride’s on Quassy’s infamous Monster Mouse. Seriously if you have never seen the thing just take a look. It looks like one day Herschell decided to build a steel coaster on toothpicks. Very nerve-racking to say the least, especially since the whole support structures violently wobbles back and forth when the cute little mouse cars navigate it. Not only that, but I have witnessed numerous safety malfunctions involving this ride such as a wheel flying off mid-ride or the cars valleying. However, this isn’t all that surprising after looking at Quassy’s other rides and how poorly maintained those are as well (especially the incident on the Music Fest where a piece of metal flew off, hitting a girl in the face). Also, there’s a rumor that while at its previous location (Rye Playland) one of the cars went flying off the track, killing both riders. Hmmm… Anyway onto this frightening little mouse. It’s always a walk-on, but single riders beware, since the park actively enforces a double rider policy making this credit challenging for single riders. Ignoring the whole safety issue, the Monster Mouse actually is a pretty good mouse coaster. The whole ride is incredibly smooth through all of the hairpin turns (a rarity on some mouse coasters) and the added thrill of falling to my death just makes those hairpin turns memorable. Also, the first two drops on this mouse are gigantic for a mouse coaster and actually provide some air! Two complaints though about the ride, after the helix, the ride just seems to lose all speed while navigating those final few bunny hills and the final brakes are very rough if you don’t anticipate them, so be warned. Despite the near-death ride experience this provides, in all actuality the Monster Mouse is one of my favorite mouse coasters. Those two big drops and the terrifying hairpin turns just make this mouse very memorable, making it compare favorably to other mice. However, this certainly isn’t a coaster for the faint of heart because of the aforementioned “issues”. Overall Quassy is a small, family park worth visiting for this unique, almost extinct mouse. Favorite Seat: N/A Best Part: First Drop

This ride is poorly maintained and not very big, but its still a lot of fun, especially considering it was my first non-kiddie coaster. Hopefully maintenance will improve in following years; as its an antique and a keeper, but I do wish Quassy would keep up with time add a few modern rides, and take better care of the ones they already have.

Its a fun ride. Nothing really special, just basic carnival ride fun. The ride could use some TLC as could the park itself. While Quassy is pretty much a childrens park, it could benefit from the addition of a wooden coaster. While a new ride would probably be out of the price range for the management, they could probably get a good deal on a relocation project coaster. The Lincoln Park Comet would be a nice addition to Quassy.

Average "mouse" roller coaster. Maintence on it seems to be poor. Very shakey and uneasy feeling when riding this ride.

I remember riding this ride in elementary school, almost 8 years ago, and being terrified. Now looking back upon it, Monster was a shaky, uncomfortable, and ugly old coaster that I dont remember anyone enjoying.

A fun "ugly" wild mouse, but not a spectacular ride.
