This Wild Mouse roller coaster became Carowind's 11th roller coaster when it opened in 2002. Standing nearly 5-stories individual cars on Ricochet ascend the lift to begin a series of seven switchback turns before doubling back twice with multiple drops and air-time hills. This Mack compact park-model has just the right amount of thrills for new roller coaster riders.
