Big Chief's 8/10

My dad and I arrived at about 1 PM. Among the most noticeable additions to the park (besides the structure of Hades) was the new ticket booth building at the north entrance, which we used. We bought 3-hour wristbands. I suggested that we head straight for Pegasus, which we did, sitting in 2-2. It was a fun ride as before, although I noticed that the trains now make one circuit per ride, rather than two.

After Pegasus, we rode Cyclops in the last row of the train. Powerful ejector air as usual! This ride seemed to confirm that the two-circuit policy is gone. Following that, we thought of driving the Poseidon track; however, upon seeing the line, we rode Zeus instead. (In fact, all the go-kart tracks had sizeable lines.) We rode in the last row, and it was fun!

Next, we watched Dive to Atlantis run for a bit. Since temperatures were only in the 60s, we didn't ride. Following that, we rode the Turbo Track since its line wasn't as bad as some of the others. After Turbo Track, we got in line for the Titans Tower track. We were in line for 40 minutes, and then the race lasted about 10 minutes.

By then, we had 20 minutes left on our wristbands, so we headed for Cyclops. This time, we only had a one train wait before our ride in 3-2. After that, we had time for one more ride. We chose Cyclops again, and got a walkon to 3-2! With our wristbands expired, we left.

I found it odd that our waits for the coasters were shorter that those for the go-karts. Perhaps, to increase the capacity of the longer tracks, the number of laps should be decreased. Though I'd have liked to do more, I did have a fun time. It's nice to see Mt. Olympus somewhat busy, and I'd like to come back next year to ride Hades!

Yes, it is nice Mt Olympus is getting guests, and even nicer they seem to like the go-karts more. Please tell me you got to go to Timber Falls too. It would be a shame to go to the Dells to ride coasters and miss Avalanche. That ride is way better than the Mt Olympus coasters.

stoogemanmoe's avatar Hopefully you didn't go to that awful "Top Secret attraction."

My Beautiful wife, Julia, is the best thing that has ever happened to me!

RavenTTD: We also went to a stock car race near Madison later that day, so no Avalance this time. However, we saw it on the way there and it looks good! Maybe my dad and I can hit Avalanche, Hades, and Little Dipper at Little A-Merrick-A (hey, it's a credit!) next year!

stoogemanmoe: With Mt Olympus and the race, we didn't have time!
