I don't remember feeling like I'm gonna die, seeing fights, or having to wait an hour for stuff on the cruise. Course I went in February or March

I realize this isn't Mt. Olympus related (however it is Dells related), so if it needs to be moved elsewhere please let me know.

I'm planning to go to Noah's Ark this weekend. 1) How are lines? (I realize it is a Saturday, I would just like to set my expectations accordingly) 2) Are there any budget friendly places to stay in the Dells? (Side note: I do not have a tent or a sleeping bag). Thanks for any help in advance.

I visited Mt. Olympus for the first time On a Sunday a few weeks ago, and I have to say I actually had a pleasant experience. I anticipated it to be awful but it was basically just a poor man’s Holiday World (I felt like it was everything Holiday World offers, just not as good, but still decent).

I will say the ops are slow and it’s weird how every employee is imported, but they were mostly all very friendly, the park was clean, and the coasters were more intense than I would’ve ever guessed. I will say they were also shockingly rough.

I am not surprised Zeus closed down the next day and is still closed pending complete retracting of portions. It was so brutal I honestly was concerned for my life. Too bad because it was possibly my favorite coaster in their lineup, contrary to the opinion of most enthusiasts. Hades 360 was great too, but had a few random spots that were terribly rough. One train with a dispatch every 12 minutes didn’t help either but luckily it wasn’t too crowded. Still a 30 minute station wait at the peak of the crowds.

Need some input, is Mt. Olympus really that bad that I should avoid it at all costs? I’ve lived only a few hours away from the park for several years now and haven’t been yet, but since I might be moving away soon, I’m thinking about biting the bullet and going.

I went last summer and thought it wasn't nearly as bad as people say. I actually enjoyed my visit. Yes, employees are rude, bathrooms are disgusting, and operations are abysmal but other than that, it's a nice little park. Hades is my #1 coaster and I'd say it's worth the trip alone. Cyclops is great too. You can find tickets for really cheap sometimes, I got mine for literally $3 off of the Mount Olympus website. :lmao: You should visit

^ You should probably go since it is only a 3 hour car ride away. Just go with no expectations and you should have a decent time but nothing spectacular. I wish it was a better park since it is so close to us but it is not.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

WAIT WAIT WAIT!?!?!?! What else is there?!!!?

So employees are bad, facilities are gross, operations suck...oh and most of the rides try to kill you, but yeah it's great! :?r

Sure, of course, everyone should go there once if you're into coasters, but don't try to paint it as some amazing place that people will love. Maybe you all tolerated it better because we set your expectations accordingly.

I love donkeys more than me.
