I found myself behind in the coaster world when I saw the front of the Hades trains. I thought "When did that happen?". Don't worry, I just did a little research and found out.

 

I love the third picture of Cyclops with the man in the back seat and how the seat belt is holding him in. That's a lot of airtime! Ya (With a Minnesotan accent)!

^Maybe so, but I thought Cyclops was a one-trick pony (if you were in the backseat). The rest of the ride was just average.

 

But it is one helluva good trick.

Hanno, just awesome! I thought the back seat thing was 50% truth/ 50% gimmick. Yah, uhm, 100% truth for sure. That was insane and I don't think anyone can be prepared for it, at least during the first go.

 

I wish it wasn't overcast that day, it gave the park this dreary kind of atmosphere, which didn't help its case. All and all, the woodies were cool and that wave pool was a one-of-a-kind. For their 2012 major attraction, they should add Power Park style Go Karts.

After Mount Olympus it was time to move on but before leaving the Dells and make our way to Valleyfair we had one more planned stop.

 

Day 10: Timberfalls

 

Last time i was there (07) they had a lightning strike the evening before we got there. That ride session is in the top of my all time favorite memories.

Anyway, story telling is not one of my good points (especially after such a long time) so i will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Nice little place with a mini golf course, logflume and a coaster.

When in the area, don't forget to take a ride on this one ;)

But wait, the day was not over just yet.

 

As a surprise we made a quick stop for a bonus credit.

 

Day 10: Knuckleheads was the place to be.

 

This ride, i think, was hilarious looking at the reaction of people riding it.

I spent time trying to get some pictures of everybody having fun (and forgot to ride it)

 

a well.. guess i'll have to go back there someday..

 

enjoy

You can really tell that Avalanche-Hellcat has crazy airtime, if even my rather unimpressive patch of hair was flying around. Sure, it may surround a mini-golf course, but it beats the hell out of anything at Mt. Olympus.

Loved Avalanche, that thing just flew around the track.

 

I have great memories of getting my ride, then spending a few hours at the Mexican restaurant Pedro's nearby drinking Mug-o-ritas and running into the ride mechanics who fixed it after the lightning storm. Good times.

Omg, it is that time again.

 

Time for the update about the last day of the trip..

 

Day 11: Valleyfair

 

Home to Renegade (and some other interesting/fun coasters)

But mostly Renegade (as far as i can remember at this moment)

 

Had a blast during the day, loved the ERT session and backstage tour and then the evening arrived..

No pictures (taken by me) and a voice that was gone for a couple of days.

 

It's been a while since i had such a blast.

 

Enough talk, time for some photo's.

 

Hope you like them, feel free to comment and thank you for reading.

 

Before i forget, thanks to everybody i talked to, interacted with and basically made this trip awesome (yet again)

Let's not forget Robb & Elissa who make sure that all you have to do is don't miss the bus

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
