Wild Mouse Ride - Carnival

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

A few weeks ago, there was an image posted on the Gorillas Don’t Blog site showing a "Mad Mouse" type of ride nestled between the Aerial Tower Ride and the Texas Pavilion - see it here.

First time I've seen this one - does anybody out there have additional images of this ride?

Best Regards,

Kevin

Wow, Kevin, I don't remember seeing this before either.

I went back and checked photos--- I spot it in two other photos. Strictly a 1965 attraction.

You're correct about it being a 1965-only attraction Randy...

I checked the "mothership" (Bill Young's nywf64.com site) and it says the "Wild Mouse" was added for 1965 when the Texas Pavilion was remodeled as the Carnival exhibit by Jimmy I. C. Chiang.

Admins: In order to help the search engines find this topic in the future, can we please change the title from "Mad Mouse Ride" to "Wild Mouse Ride - Carnival"

Thanks!!

This shot of the AMF Monorail passing the Carnival site in 1965 shows the entrance to the little-seen "Wild Mouse" ride, off in the background.
