Crazy Mouse Ride at California's Great America

Psycho Mouse

Sneakily Wicked

While standing on the midway at California’s Great America, you might think that our Psycho Mouse ride is a mild-mannered, oversized kiddie coaster. But, just you wait. There’s something quite different about this coaster that makes it stand out in a crowd. Think about your typical roller coaster, particularly the turns. Most are “banked,” meaning they tilt up a bit so you don’t feel the whip quite as much. Alas, not so with “wild mouse” types of roller coasters like Psycho Mouse. This sneaky ride is host to a series of completely flat, hairpin (therefore, hair-raising) turns with enough G-force to make you think you’re going to fly clear off the track into tomorrow. After the boomerang-like sharp turns, you fly down several hills with your stomach left far behind. With all these wacky, kick-back features, it’s no wonder this ride is called Psycho Mouse. 

Height Requirement: 48” minimum or 44” and accompanied by a supervising companion.
