The brakes were pretty jarring, but the turns had good snap and that drop really is something! Not a bad test for children's tolerance of coasters.

Nice mouse. Good drops, curves, and best of all no sudden stops.

Good wild mouse coaster. The first drop on this one was big for a mouse coaster and very zippy. While the hairpin turns werent the fastest, there werent any trims and the drops at the end were decent as well.

This was my first of the larger Mack wild mouse coasters and while Ricochet was fun, it left me a tad disappointed. The tall first drop is very fast and enjoyable, but the rest of the course is pretty dull. While smooth, the hairpin turns and final few hills are far too slow to provide any thrill. Ricochet is better than its sister in Canada and a solid family coaster, but it seemed like it could have been better.

Wild mice are not animals that I find give a pleasant ride, in general and this one didnt do anything to change that. I found that the ride was rough in a bad way, the cars are not terribly comfortable, and the overall thrill factor is lacklustre at best.

Very dissapointing. First off, the first drop was good, and I couldnt believe that a Wild Mouse type coaster would go that fast. I could only imagine the side-pounding lateral Gs that I was going to experience. But then you get taken up another lift and into some WAY TOO STRONG block brakes. You get slowed down to near nothing ruining the laterals and all the fun that you should have had on the switch backs. What basically sums this ride up is I saw one car in which the two riders in the front of the car had their hands up for the WHOLE ride. I tried to do that on Road Runners Express down at SFKK and my arms were abruptly shot down on the fist turn! Plus, the switch-backs didnt even provide the "going over the edge" feeling that usually scares the crap out of me on Wild Mice. Overall, if it werent for the first drop, this ride is simply a waste of your time.

The second best mouse Ive been on, but not even close to the best. Actually, if it werent for the first drop, the coaster would have been quite boring. The drop is very steep and a lot of fun, but the turns on the mouse coaster arent taken fast enough. Still, its a fun little ride if you have time, but its nothing great.

Very clean looking coaster with not much scenery around it. Very unique layout that seems to be longer in duration than most mouse coasters. I really enjoyed the tight turns at the top and I also liked the hills. It gives good airtime also. It needs less braking and less jerkieness IMO.

Fun little ride Id only get on if a partner wants to. You get a nice view from up here and I was looking around quite a bit since obviously, theres nothing thrilling at all besides the one drop. Cool little hairpin turns. Fun kiddy ride.
