Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK

The iconic Wild Mouse at Blackpool Pleasure Beach has been removed. Wild Mouse, which opened in 1958, was one of only four remaining wooden wild mouse coasters in the world.

However, its final closure and removal was announced in a press release by the park. Click the headline for more information
