Rocky Mountain Construction Announces Wild Moose Family Coaster Model
Move over, wild mouse — Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) today announced the Wild Moose, a new coaster model designed to compete with or replace the traditional wild mouse coaster. The family-friendly coaster design uses RMC’s patented I-Box track system and comes equipped with redeveloped open-air trains.
The model pictured stands 50 feet tall and occupies a 150-foot-by-80-foot space.
The Wild Moose coaster is a reimagining of the traditional wild mouse coaster, which is an amusement park staple.
“One of the most exciting things about the Wild Moose Coaster is that it can traverse almost any track layout imaginable,” said RMC in a news release.
“With our patented I-Box system, we are able to fabricate track so twisted that it almost appears deformed. This gives us an unparalleled ability to introduce new ride experiences and wonky visuals that can only be described with one word: fun!”
The Wild Moose coaster model also offers a higher hourly rider capacity due to its longer trains versus the traditional four-seat wild mouse cars. The restraints on the new trains are also designed to allow for easier and quicker guest loading and unloading.
While the Wild Moose model could of course be built in place of anything, it is designed to fit on any existing wild mouse location, an enticing feature for parks that may be limited on available space to build new attractions.
While RMC didn’t reveal where we can expect to see the first installation of a Wild Moose coaster, hopefully we don’t have to wait too long.
