This does not have the average "wild mouse" layout that most rides of this type have. This seemed to have a longer layout and more complex layout which made it a lot more exciting. This got some major speed on the first drop and really got that "fall of the tracks" feeling on the tight turns. The brakes do seem to be turned up to "hernia" level though, which takes points off just because it makes you have to go to the bathroom so bad. However, the uniqueness of this particular mouse really makes it fun and different. Definately one of the best "wild mouse" coasters.

Not too bad a Wild Mouse. Got turns, drops, its basically just another Wild-Mouse.

This is an above-average wild mouse...I had a blast on this ride this past weekend. We dubbed it "ricoshit" even though it is far from being a crappy ride. Its small and somewhat tame, but the last few turns are pretty intense, especially with the brakes not kicking in, which they have been doing my past few visits.

wow a unique mouse and my new favorite for this genre. APPEARANCE-7 Very clean looking but not much scenary or anything around it. CAPACITY-9 It had 8 4 seater trains the day I was there so it should load pretty quick no matter the crowd. RIDE QUALITY-9 A smooth running mouse with an unique layout, even the drop was good especially by mouse standards. FUN-7 It gives good mouse fun but not great coaster fun. RERIDE-8 A huge line would deter me and Its good but not a must ride. OVERALL-40 AVG-8.0 Cut and dried a good mouse and one of the best rides I got on the day I was there. They closed the park at 2 oclock so I only got about half of the rides.

After riding a few mouse rides, I wasnt expecting much, but I think that Ricochet is the best that I have ever been on. The first drop was a doozy, which is why I would rate this higher than the Carowinds model, which had no noteworthy drops. Ricochet also has those fun mouse attributes of the elevated hairpins and sudden changes in direction, done in a small and fairly open car which actually can be thrilling and deceivingly frightening. I would like to point out that this was not a fully custom design, and the same ride can be found at the Legoland parks Overall though, Ill give this Ricochet an 8 because it is the best Wild Mouse coaster that I have been on.

A pretty good Wild Mouse. I like Wild Mouse coasters, and this one wasnt bad nor outstanding.

I didnt notice much of a difference between this one and the one at Carowinds, I know they are different but after riding each one only once I really couldnt tell you the difference. Like Carowinds this one has everything a wild mouse should: hairpin turns, sudden stops, air on the first drop but nothing all that special

Certainly the best wild mouse Ive ever been on. I guess it just goes to show you how good a wild mouse can be with an original layout. I just wish they would improved capacity as well.

The best wild mouse Ive ever ridden. Its layout is different than the traditional hairpin turns at the top, because it starts out with a 50 foot drop. Most wild mouse coasters dont have drops that big on any point of the ride. I really liked this one.
