Wild Mouse Roller Coaster

With a nod to the original Wild Mouse coaster, the modern Wild Mouse has it all: hills, twists, dives and hairpin turns as you play an unpredictable game of “cat and mouse” in your quest to capture the cheese!

Wild Mouse features six mouse-themed cars and one cheese-themed car. You become part of the adventure as you play the role of mouse or cheese. Each 4-passenger car will climb 52 feet, crest the lift hill and begin a twisting, spinning and WILD journey along 1,312 feet of orange track. Wild Mouse will be Cedar Point’s 18th roller coaster experience.

HEIGHT: 52 FT

SPEED: 35 MPH

DURATION: 1:10 MIN

Cedar Point’s Grand Pavilion

In its heyday, the original Grand Pavilion, opened in 1888, served as the center of entertainment for thousands of summer visitors. Cedar Point’s Grand Pavilion, a new and modern version, will feature many characteristics of the original.
