Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park Discussion Thread

P. 61: America's First 'Slidewheel' opening Summer 2022!

Recommended Posts

I'm certainly not expecting anything luxurious (duh, its Mt. Olympus after all), but after looking at some photos and room tour vids on youtube, It doesn't seem to be as downright sketchy as the other buildings. It still has some mixed reviews like the other properties, but the newer reviews seem to be notably more positive than older ones.

 

FWIW, we stayed in the "Value Room", the cheapest they had, which was just a basic hotel room, with few frills, and found it perfectly acceptable. None of us are super picky about hotels, and I love to save money, but it was nicer than the Red Roof Inn we stayed at later in the trip, and I thought it was a steal for the price, and getting admission to the park included.

 

^Yeah, I saw that just now! Funny thing is, I don't think that option was there last week. But I could be wrong. They had a pay now, or pay later option when I made the reservation, and I got the discount by paying in advance. Still, it looks like they've jumped prices up considerably since then, so I'm glad I decided to go early. Still, the price you pay is all inclusive, including parking, so in the end, it still seems like a pretty good deal, especially if you're bringing a group.

 

I booked my stay june 20th. I am traveling alone this time if anyone wanted to meet up and ride some coasters with me

 

Tempting... Very tempting...

 

What better excuse will you ever have to check out mt Olympus

 

Well, I just went a couple weekends ago (I actually wrote a mini-TR here about it), but yeah, I really liked it, so I'd consider going again!

Mt. Olympus is also very tempting for me! Also, nearby Little-a-Merrick-A opens on Saturday (6/13) and the Badger starts its season on Friday (I'm 30 minutes from the east end of the Badger)

I am extremely bummed but I just canceled my trip. Its supposed to thunderstorm all day Saturday. I contacted the park and they said they close the park if there is a thunderstorm and if the radar shows more thunder they will not reopen. I don't to travel all that way to not ride Hades or the other rides.

Little-A-Merrick-A rocks. A guaranteed fun time! I spent more time there last year in one day than I did all year at Great America. Shame how things change. I'll be heading there as well as Bay Beach (another true gem) soon!

 

Sad too that I haven't wanted to go to Mt. Olympus is years. That park used to be fun - Cyclops was always in my top 10 (haven't rode it with the new ratchet bars and slightly re-plrofiled drop-o-death.)

I contacted the park and they told me that all the rides would be open in the indoor water and theme park, but "only selected rides are usually open in the outdoors and its weather permitting. We cannot tell yet what rides will be open at the outdoor for that day as we also get those information within the day as well". A little confused, I responded back asking if they try to have all rides open and they replied "If the weather is nice, coasters and go karts will be open but the whole outdoor park will be fully open memorial day". So not sure if they are just going to pick and choose what to operate..? I still plan on going, I'll update afterwards.

I went to the park for the first time last year in June and everything was open and Hades and Zeus were running great

I'm sure it's a staffing issue as well as weather

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!

AMERICA’S FIRST SLIDEWHEEL

The time has finally come! America‚Äôs first rotating water slide¬†is coming to Mt. Olympus Summer of 2022! The rotating water slide¬†‚ÄėSlidewheel‚Äô will be a whole new element of indoor water park excitement above all else for guests to experience year round!

This new attraction combines the movement of a Ferris wheel and the speed and thrill of a water slide. The intricate tangle of tubes on a horizontal axis allows the entire ride to rotate while guests whip through it! The Slidewheel offers all the best aspects of a classic water slide, like speed, g-forces, and even the occasional bit of air time, but its rotation brings so much more to the table. Thanks to the pendulum movement, rotation and back-and-forth motions, the slide experience is like none other ever before!
