The old stories of the old Wild Mouse (and other things)
Check this page out:

There were 3 wild mouse models in Utah at one point. Any of these could have been the source of the "death on wild mouse" rumor.

There was a park near Provo, Saratoga Springs and of course Lagoon.

I wonder if anyone has any information on these other 2 Utah parks from the 50's - early 80's ?   I found some information about Saratoa Resort...it was completely destroyed by the flood in 1983. Since it is currently a housing development, a lot of people could be swimming if that flood ever happens again.

Interesting! I have even been to that site before, but was only looking for Mack installations in Utah. I never realized there were others and according to that they were both installed before Lagoon got theirs in 1965. Since the others were both portable Schiff models I wonder if it was the same one. Never even heard of the Melendez place in Provo.
