Wild Mouse roller coaster
A Wild Mouse roller coaster is characterized by small cars (usually seating only 4 people) riding on top of the track taking tight turns at fairly high speeds and producing high lateral G forces. The track work is characterized by tight turns, and many bunny hops producing negative vertical G forces.
Some may include trick track — a "straight" piece of track banked slightly side to side designed to throw the rider left to right.
The feeling of a wild mouse coaster is amplified by using cars wich are wider than the track itself, giving the feeling that you're hanging off the side, or might fly out. Thus giving it the name "wild".
