Uncle Bunt and the Wild Mouse!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:06 pm by Aleksan

Thank you Geoff for this photo of the Wild Mouse Roller Coaster at Southsea. Rob and I as kids rode on this wooden rickety and creaking structure, which was scary and uncomfortable. Uncle Bunt, after paying for us to go on, was persuaded to have a go himself. We watched entranced, his tall strong body, sitting bolt upright, was whizzed up and down and jerked round corners. He kept a straight immobile back, and was a head or so taller than the others on the ride. At one point the roller coaster went over the sea, and just as you screamed, it jerked sharply back in before the final descent. Uncle Bunt came back looking very pale. His only comment, spoken in a gruff Hampshire accent “ I ad no business up there”
