Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park Discussion Thread

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park will break into year-round amusement rides when it completes a 43,000 square foot indoor theme park some time next year.

 

Mt. Olympus co-owner Nick Laskaris said the building will be called the "Parthenon" -- after the ancient Greek temple of the same name -- and will be of the same architectural style as the rest of the Mt. Olympus park.

 

The Parthenon will contain a spinning roller coaster called the "Opa," a Greek exclamation shouted after downing a drink, as well as other amusement rides.

 

Construction on the development, whose site plan made it through the Lake Delton Plan Commission Tuesday, has already begun between Treasure Island's indoor water park and the Mt. Olympus theme park.

"We need to get into the more year-round amusements," Laskaris said. "Our hotel partners will have something to offer year-round, too, when we package with them."

 

The Parthenon will be open 12 months a year and be connected to the indoor water park, which is also open year-round.

 

The indoor and outdoor waterparks, and the indoor and outdoor theme parks will all be offered in one admission price, Laskaris said. "It's pretty hard to find more variety than that," he said.

 

The Dells area is lacking in year-round amusement, Laskaris said, and the new park may predict a trend in future development. "This is a first for us, so I'm sure if it goes well (other businesses will) all be jumping on board," he said. "They'll be watching it."

^ that would be awsome. But, you have to consider that the Dells is more than one or two roads full of stuff. There are miles of bike, snowmobile, horse trails all over the area. Plus, there are ski resorts, and boat cruises around the area too. It would be nice to put it on the main strip but not the whole area. Although, it would be cool if they did that

 

But this does sound like a good idea. I mean there will be a indoor/outdoor water park and a indoor/outdoor theme park. It really cant get that much better!

Wow, this is great news!

 

After visiting Toverland in Europe I really didn't understand why more year round parks don't build indoor sections that can be open year round! The Dells is continuing to impress me more and more. Now, granted it's a spinning mouse, but that's got to be one of the coolest names for a spinning mouse yet!

^ Let's just hope it's a Gerstlauer or Maurer Shone model, and not one of the less exciting Reverchon clone models.

 

I'd love to see another Maurer Shone model in the US, especially one with the awesome 90 degree bank turn/hill thing.

 

Anyways, now I can get my coaster fix during the winter, with a place that's pretty close to me.

Isn't that when they set their food on fire, too?...

 

At Greek restaurants, half the dishes I get are served to me aflame. Tastes great, though!
