This picture illustrates a couple of facts. First, the Wild Mouse has a few good drops at the end of the ride. Second, it shows how close the park is to some residences and office towers. When the park reopened in 1995, noise complaints forced severe restrictions on the times when the new Big Dipper coaster could operate in order to minimize sound impacting the surrounding areas. The Environmental Protection Authority approved the new coaster but only if the park followed these strict noise guidelines. They also required the park to pay for soundproofing of any residential units affected by the noise.
