Personally, I think Hellcat/Avalanche is the only reason to visit the Dells--great ride. I thought Hades was going to kill me.

It kills me to see this time and time again. That whole Mt. Olympus Hotel, Water Park, and Amusement Park has SOOOO much potential. The hotel alone with the indoor waterpark should be sold out year round, but they just neglect the entire property. Plus they hire nothing but teenage workers (mostly from out of the country) who have no desire to work or help guests.

Maybe someday they'll catch on and realize what a gold mine they're truly sitting on and do something with it.

^ I think part of the problem is that they just keep expanding and buying more property, and going for quantity over quality. Just this year they added tree houses, vacation houses, bought a hotel nowhere near the park that's past the downtown Dells area, and bought the Marleys restaurant next to Noahs Ark and converted it into a night club. I agree that the park has potential, and while they've definitely taken it a long way from what it was and made it WIs only big park, they still have a long ways to go.

^The Marley's restaurant is now the nightclub?!?! I heard that they were adding a club, but I thought it was on the original Mt. O property and I couldn't even understand where they would put it. This makes much more sense now.

^Yep, Marleys has relocated to a much nicer building, and it now has a night club of it's own, but I'm sure soon enough Mt. O will buy it and convert it to Wett 2.0. :p

Thanks for the report, Chad! I think I will wait for them to turn the park around before I put it on my radar, if that ever happens...
