Trip: July 26th-30th

Parks: Big Chief, Six Flags Great America, Six Flags St. Louis, Adventureland.

This is my 2nd return to Big Chief Carts & Coasters. I left Minnesota on Friday after 2:30pm got there around 6:30pm. I stayed at the Skyline Hotel which is right near Big Chief. I decided to get a head start on my lap riding on Zeus & Cyclops before the full day on Saturday. I got some warm up laps. 4laps on each.

Saturday. I got there around 10am. I pretty much spend the whole day riding Zeus & Cyclops and did a few laps on Pegasus.

Zeus: 10/10

Zeus: Zeus is insane, fast, nice strong turns and helixs and some major air time. I rode in several different places in the train. By the way they are PTC trains ;). First few times were in the front followed in the middle and a lot in the back. I love the back on Zeus becuase it's an ejector seat ;).

Cyclops: 8/10

Cyclops is a little different shorter. Has a nice first drop and nice strong helix's and some decent amount of air time very smooth ride also.

Pegasus: 6/10

Pegasus was ok. It's not bad for if it's supposed to be considered a junior coaster. I couldnt realy find any air time but still delivers a fun ride.

I also did some go cart rideing for a while. The thing I like about Big Chief is on Zeus & Cyclops you get 2laps for the price of one. So I did 38laps on each not bad for one day. I also saw the famous Tommy show and rode the Wisconsin Ducks which are boat tours which was pretty cool. I will return next season because I love the Dells area. *2 Thumbs Up! :)*

Next up: Great America on Sunday followed by 6Flags St. Louis & Adventureland 1st visit. Stay Tuned for part 2.

You didn't get over to Riverview for their Galaxi and kiddie coaster?? It's not much but's it's 2 more for the count if you can find a kid to ride the kiddie with.

A mile? Try practically across the street.

I can't see how anyone could rate Cyclops twisting first drop, whupstick #2 and the post-midcouse trench drop below Zeus. You must be a sucker for height and length. I kneel on a prayer rug pointed toward Cyclops' station three times a day. It's the Wisconsin Raven IMHO.

Curious, does Riverside sell individual ride tickets? I see the POP offered for $12, which is probably just as well since they do have a few flat rides that can be ridden as well as the Galaxi.

I've heard Big Chiefs has a fourth coaster, a steel family coaster, is that coaster operated in "Rent-A-Kid" mode?

Cville Dave - You can either do POP or Pay-per-Ride at Riverside.

You can ride Big Chief's fourth coaster (Little Titans, Miler kiddie) by yourself; you don't need a child. That park will take the money however they can get it.

I had my prayer rug pointed that way for many years but this year I turned it south towards Viper's station at Six Flags Great America. I agree with you though, Cyclops is the best thing going in that park. It is very short but also really insane. Absolutely monster ejector air from the back seat.
