Description
This is a Schiff Wild Mouse coaster recreation but with real size is 30 foot. Recolorable supports Recolorable track, and Recolorable cars.

HISTORY:

Ben Schiff of Miami, Florida, listed a Wild Mouse ride in Billboard's Spring 1956 ride survey and placed a ride in Roseland Park (NY) in mid-1956. This ride would have been the first Wild Mouse of any sort to operate in North America. It may have been removed after an ejection accident in September, 1956. Advertisements at the end of 1956 mentioned rides at Funland Park, Miami, Florida and Havana, Cuba. An estimated 20-30 rides were installed by 1960. Some of these may have been sold through a subsidiary called Amusement Industries Supply Corporation. The earliest rides were not designed to be portable, and the installation for the 1957 Kentucky State Fair required two weeks.

In early 1959, Schiff introduced a smaller portable version of the Wild Mouse. Schiff may have stopped producing the larger version in the United States, but they sold their materials to Butlins to create the Wild Mouse coaster in the UK.

As of 2019 there are no B. A. Schiff's Wild Mouse coasters still operated today. But there are 1 Wild Mouse coaster are standing but not operating.

This is a very nice looking Mouse coaster. But at any height I place it will not allow me to place the queue. I have tried repositioning the entrance. Changed the settings to turn off all collision control. There is absolutely nothing blocking the entrance. But I always get an "obstructed" error when trying to place the first queue section at the ride entrance. Am I the only one who cannot add a queue to this workshop item?

Looks like a total of 62 of them to me: https://rcdb.com/6914.htm
Not much about dimensions, but yo can see there are "large" and "small" versions. The longer the track, the higher it has to be to start with, so this implies different heights at the very least. I f you dig deep enough, you might even find the actual heights elsewhere. But it's clear there was more than 1 model with more than 1 height.

What are you talking about? there's no heights on Schiff Wild Mouse models on RCDB.
Bullethead Jan 23 @ 1:49pm 
Well, check on RCDB. I seem to recall that listing a number of models of different sizes

i'm not sure i think it did wrong size.
Bullethead Jan 23 @ 1:43pm 
Well, were there all the same? I seem to recall there were several different models.

After doing some research I found out that it was not 30 foot, is 40 foot.

The custom supports look awesome! I know what an effort all that is, especially at life-size scale. This is great work all around :)
