Wild Mouse is a steel roller coaster in Hersheypark designed by MACK Rides, Germany, in 1999. Riders are placed in single carts on a thin track. The ride frequently makes sharp turns, giving riders the illusion they are about to fall off the track. When this occurs the riders are jerked as they turn

Wild Mouse's curves

Hersheypark usually runs their Wild Mouse with very little braking on the upper level, loading slow-moving cars in the station, and allows four adults per car. By comparison, Dorney Park's Wild Mouse is run with more brake pressure, cars stop to load in the station, and the park enforces a strict two-adult per car limit. Despite these differences, and the different manufacturers, the ride layout of these two Wild Mouse coasters are nearly identical (designed by Werner Stengel). The Wild Mouse features a Get The Picture on-ride photo spot.
