Speedy Bob is a Wild Mouse style coaster, located in the Belgian park, Bobbejaanland in Lichtaart. The coaster was build by German manufacturer Mack Rides and was designed by the German company, Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH. The coaster was opened in July 2, 1998 and can be found in the 'Cowboy Village' section of the park.

The track is 370 meters long and the height of the lift is 14 meters. With a top speed of 45 km/h, riders stays on the ride for a total one minute and 25 seconds. As a wild mouse, Speedy Bob is charactrized by shapr curves and sudden drops.

For years, Speedy Bob was a unique coaster due to its (now disappeared) dueling effect. This coaster used to consists of 2 identical (albeit mirrored) versions, to give the ride a racing/dueling effect, which got the ride to be highly praised as a family coaster among fans.

in the 2009 season, it was decided to move the left side of the coaster to the Spanish amusment park, Parque de Atracciones de Madrid, there it is known under the name of Vértigo ('Whirl' in English).

On April 18, 2011, an accident accured when two cars collided with each other, slightly injuring 5 people.
