They really should add more rides to the line up, like Dragons Fury, Vampire etc.

Vampire requires heavy maintanace during winter, taking that off ride opening possability. And Dragon's Fury struggles to complete its course when its cold.

The only coasters I can see opening are Runaway Train and Rattlesnake. Obviously Runaway Train can't open this year for the Scopion Express transformation. They probably see no reason to open Rattlesnake because of its capacity and more direct target group.

Unless it is the summer holidays, Rattlesnake never has any queues, the issue is due to it's 1.4 height restriction, the majority of guests on the African Adventure won't be able to ride, so it will not really be available to that many guests.

Do all Wild Mouse coasters have a 1.4 restriction?

They could easily open Peaking Heights

Judging on how busy it was on Wednesday, Rattlesnake would generally be getting its usual 2-5mins queues maximum, but everyone walks right past it to get to the rides. Many people saying "why didn't they open that?" many of them over 1.4m

However, I don't see why they couldn't open peeking heights, unless they don't want you to have a view of the whole park. Think about it, enthusiasts would go on, and take loads of pictures and share them all over the internet. Then there'd be no surprise in March.

No. Not all Maurer Mouse's are 1.4m.

Peeking Heights is under tech at the moment and has no motors. :)

Thinking of going Sunday - can someone confirm the exact rides that have been opened? Looks like Tomb Blaster, Hocus Pocus Hall and zoo stuff?
