While I originally thought that I would definitely like these larger wild mouse coasters over the smaller and more compact models, I honestly like some of the more compact ones better. While the first drop is very fun and zippy, the hairpin turns are disappointing. They are perfectly smooth, but they lack teeth of other models. Then the final bunny hills are pretty uneventful. They are just taken too slowly to provide any pops of air or excitement.

This was my first mouse with such a massive drop. Approaching the ride, I was expecting the standard Mack mouse with the hairpin turns in the beginning and the zippy drops at the end. I thought I was hallucinating when I saw a mouse with such a large drop. Well, the drop was just as good as it looked and it really gave a cool sensation thanks to the cute, little cars. However, after that the ride had horrid hairpin turns thanks to the dreaded trim brakes Cedar Fair is known for. The final few drops were decent though. Hey, the whole ride is smooth and that first drop makes it well-worth riding.

I had fun on this, but I have been on better ones. The first drop as always on these ones are pretty good and zippy, but the hairpin turns were pretty weak because of all the trims. The final few drops were decent though.

Not nearly as good as the version at PKD but a fun ride anyway. APPEARANCE-7 In a nice area of the park and does offer better surroundings then the PKD version. CAPACITY-4 Seems to load very slow for a mouse. Not Dorney bad, but nowhere close to HP either. RIDE QUALITY-5 Way too many brakes. I am sure CF was happy about this as they dont have to spend any money to get it on par with the mouse at VF. FUN-6 Only because of the first drop in those little cars. RERIDE-4 I might do this again since it is at a park with so few coasters I would ride again. OVERALL-30 AVG-6.0

This is probably my favorite (non spinning wild mouse) ride. It isnt excessively rough like many rides of this type are. It is a smooth, fun, family ride, appropriate for all ages.

Its an average coaster. The first drop was awesome, and I love how they take a picture at the end of the drop. It does have a kinda nice view from the top. I thought the hairpin turns were pretty boring however. Its overbraked as well, which sucks. It is a good first coaster, or great for kids.. so Ill give it a 7.

Next to spinning wild mouse coasters, this is by far the best mouse Ive been on. Its still overly braked - I havent been on a mouse that wasnt - but far less than others. Its meant to be more of a family coaster I guess, but still provides a fun ride.

The Fly is a steel sit down roller coaster(mouse). It was built by Mack in 1999. It is 54' tall, it is 1,308' long. A pretty good mouse ride with good hills, sharp turns, and a good layout. It uses too many brakes however, and the line can be very long at times. Its a good family coaster however. It is average speed, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Overbraked, big time. I think Wonderland is marketing this more as a family coaster, so theyre trying to keep it tamed. Not so much "wild" as it is "caged". Was good for the first couple of years of its existance, but has suffered horribly lately. Long queues, as well.
