The Mouse is Chasing the Cheese

Wild Mouse has six mouse-themed cars and one cheese-themed car and according to Cedar Point's website, you "become part of the adventure as you play the role of mouse or cheese."

Most rollercoasters have cars that are stationary, facing in one fixed direction. As you'll see in the video below, the cars on Wild Mouse can spin a full 360 degrees. Each ride can theoretically be different because the number of riders in each car can affect how the cars spin during the ride.

Take a Point-of-View Ride

Tony Clark has been the Director of Communications with Cedar Point for a very long time, and frankly, one of the nicest dudes we've had the pleasure of working with. Clark braved the elements in late April - on a cold and rainy Tuesday afternoon - to give us a point-of-view look at Cedar Point's newest coaster.

"When they call you and say 'Come ride Wild Mouse' when it's 42 degrees and rainy, you go!" Clark says.

The ride goes by quickly - it's just a little over one minute long, but there are lots of spins as the ride scoots along 1,300 feet of track.

Take a look at Wild Mouse in the video below.

The House That Cereal Built - Step Inside the Kellogg Mansion

Taking a peek into the Kellogg Mansion is like stepping back in time. The home, built in 1925 was originally known as the Villa Marina in Dunedin Isles.

William Kellogg, who founded the Michigan-based Kellogg's company only lived in the sprawling mansion for about three years (during the winter months) before his death in 1951. Eventually, the home succumbed to structural damage and was demolished a few years ago.

In addition to the photos below, you can take a virtual tour of the home using virtual reality. A news story highlighting the University of Florida's program is included below.
