This is a real bummer. The avalanche was the best coaster that we rode in the dells.

Really sad, that was such a fun little coaster. On the bright side now no one needs to go to the Dells.

Good riddance. When we visited the Dells in '16 that was by far the roughest coaster I had ever been on.

Exactly. That *WAS* a great coaster when it first opened and the staff and owners there were awesome. Towards the later years, it was just as crappy in all ways as Mt. Olympus is!

I've heard the ops at this park are wretched. If I show up on a sunny Sunday, roughly how busy do the coasters get?

From past reports it sounds like there's no guarantee rides open with the park, but if I show up late the max crowds will have arrived. I'm trying to figure out what the worst wait is at this park (1 hour?).

^^ I visited the park early last month on a Saturday with a threat of thunderstorms (that never came). Different circumstances than your situation, but hopefully you can take away something useful. At rope drop, there was only a small crowd at the entrance; a majority of them went to the water park, leaving walk-ons for all the coasters. All four wood coasters were open at park opening. The lack of crowds actually backfired on me since Hades only operates with a full train, so I wound up sitting in the station for about 15 minutes until enough people came to fill the train. The operations were far from great, but there were empty rows on all the coasters (except Hades) all day, so it didn't matter.

^ Thanks! Wow that's really strict on Hades. I guess I want them to be somewhat busy then.

For those who have ridden Zeus recently, is it running smoother than usual? I did notice a lot of fresh wood on the turnaround.

I found it quite smooth. So either they really did a lot of work on it or I'm immune to rough rides. :lol:
