Retired Rides : Alton Mouse

The Alton Mouse was another coaster installed at the same time as the Alton Beast, and were situated next to each other in Talbot Street. The ride constisted of a high climb on the lift hill, then lots of the tight corners, and steep, but short dips and climbs that define a mouse coaster. Built by Vekoma, the wheels are situated almost in the centre of the cars, giving the rider the feeling that the car is leaving the tracks. It also had a strange tilted hill-climb, giving us the impression that there was once a rotating tunnel around the hill-climb.

The ride was dogged by complaints of its comfort, and also by complaints from local residents about the general noise level coming from the area of the park, and was eventually closed along with the other rides in the area.
