Ricochet was a pretty good mouse, but not as good as the larger models. This one had some pretty good hairpin turns and almost no trims. The drops were pretty decent too, but a few seemed a bit flat.

not bad. when I came upon it I thought it was a kiddie ride. The sharp turns will have you over the edge, and the little drops are pretty fun.

The best wild mouse ive been on. It seemed the smoothest, but it was just like any other. However, the tight drop seemed very steep. The theming was nice, I enjoyed it!

Ricochet is a steel sit down roller coaster. (Mouse) It was built by Mack in 2002. It is 45' tall, it is 1,213' long, It lasts 1:50, it travels at speeds of 28 mph. This is one of the better non spinning wild mouse rides I have been on. The top portion of the ride with the tight turns are alot of fun and the bottom part of the coaster has good hills with air time. It is rerideable, it has a large capacity, and long duration.

Mouse rides usually give me the creeps. I dont have a fear of heights or anything, it just bugs me that it feels like it is going to fall off the track. I guess that is the point though, ehh? These all seem about the same to me, save for those that are really old or not taken care of. This is taken care of and is not too bad. Yep, its a wild mouse ride.

I actually didnt like this Ricochet much at all, I found it to be just your ordinary Mouse coaster. The coaster was lacking a great drop, the biggest one was probably only 20 feet. The snap-inducing sharp turns were pleasant, but nothing far from ordinary since it is a Wild Mouse. The paint job, though only two years old, seemed to be fading and fading fast, so that itself probably cost the ride a point. I cant complain much more, nor can I say much more about a production-model mouse coaster

This was a fun little ride, standard wild mouse coaster, but it was a fun ride. I would put the Kings Dominion one up higher, but this would not be too far behind

has everything a wild mouse should: hairpin turns, sudden stops, air on the first drop so dont expect anything unusual

A better than average mouse with some good speed in the turns. A completely different design than the similarly named Ricochet at Kings Dominion, I was pleasantly surprised by this coaster.

Nothing like the Ricochet at Kings Dominion. The Carowinds version focuses more on the hairpin turns, as the layout is more compact. Not that that is a bad thing, but I personally find the 50 foot drop at Kings Dominion just a little more exhilerating. But still a nice ride across the board.
