Chiselphane Posted May 16, 2019 Share Posted May 16, 2019 ^ I rode the one in Thorpe Park back in 2006. And vowed NEVER to EVER ride one of those things again. Sorry for others who love it. But for me, a "one and done" definitely. And Molasses ran way faster than this thing, either going up/down vertical and/or "spinning" (ha). I miss the original Mad Mouse metal layouts. It was great with more dips than the current ones, do. I also miss the original Caterpillar ride. That was exceptionally scary, for it's speed, and usually located right beside the Mad Mouse, when the PNE was running, back then. With a neat green and yellow striped (lengthwise) cover that would suddenly engulf the ride, to screams and laughs. Fun ride. There's a Caterpillar with working cover at Canobie Lake Park and yeah it is just so much fun. It really is fast and there's just something almost magical about the cover coming over, it's such a simple trick but so effective. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
