Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hmm....last time I encountered a nine foot wave was in South Carolina during a tropical storm. Ummm those are huge! I havent seen a theme park wave machine's waves break when they are created though, only when they are reaching the 1ft. deep water. That is sweet thought! And yes, there better be A LOT of lifeguards out there! As well as some life jakets.

Oh please, we all know it's because the coroner hasn't completed their investigations yet.  Keep an eye out for the chalk outlines, Dan!  Good luck!

Well, without a doubt I am going to visit this summer. I had been debating if it would be worth it to make the trip whe nI am in St Paul,MN this summer for a week visiting family. Not sure how close I will get to the wave. Maybe watch from a distance. Yeah, I'm a pussy....

Geagua(sp) Lakes used to be pretty big from when I remember. There were little handles all over so you wouldn't be dragged the length of the pool. I remember the simulated undertoe was pretty strong also! I used to cringe everytime the beep signaled the wave was about to go.

^This isnt one of those rides, this is a wave pool, meaning oyu can go in there surferless.

 

 

 

 

though I gotta say - im sorry but 9ft wave or not, taking down two go kart tracks jus tisnt worth it in my opinion

BTW Dont you have to be a surfer to go on this or is it open for all?

 

That's a pretty good point. With nine foot waves it might turn out to be something like the Ron Jon Surf Park that is coming to Orlando.

 

Either way,those are some serious waves.Time to blow the dust off my board!

Check out Typhoon Lagoon's wave pool. Sure, those aren't 9 foot waves, but those things crash and they crash HARD.

 

Anywho, this looks pretty sweet. I wish the wave pools here in Socal went that high.

Does anyone here remember, or even old enough to remember The Wave at Geauga Lake? And how many backboard stretchers lined the perimeter of the wave pool. You were guaranteed to see someone get there head smashed in the cement at least every hour.

I wouldn't be seen in that wavepool alive! I hate huge waves! Still glad its coming to Mt Olympus. It would be good for other people to enjoy.

Anyone here have a good guess when the wave pool is supposed too open? I know more info is coming soon, just trying to get my airfare...

 

I guess I can just plan on it being late. Though, I would rather be there in early June...
