Resort and theme park owners have unveiled a $10 million expansion in Wisconsin Dells that will include a water park complex, the new Hades rollercoaster and a go-cart track to open by Memorial Day 2005.
Read more from The Business Journal.

So Hades costs less than 10 million including that huge tunnel. Very interesting. I had no clue how much that tunnel would add to the cost but I figured it would be a lot.

Why? It's a concrete ditch. A storm sewer.

Wow, check out the park's updated website. The map is completely animated with all of the coasters, go-karts, waterslides, pedestrians, etc... in motion kind of like roller coaster tycoon. Nice job. :)

That is pretty big and deep to be a storm sewer. I guess I figured if it was that easy, it would have been done before...or more.

You should see the storm sewers (wash) out here in Vegas!

Wow, I went to the site, and downloaded the press release, and it says that underground, there will be a 90 degree turn in pitch blackness. Sounds like a real thrill to me, this may be one wood coaster with what may be a small amount of air, that I might actually like.

Wow, sounds cool. I just hope they aren't including that gawd awful attraction called "TopSecret" that steals unsuspecting tourists money. That is the worst attraction I have seen anywhere I have been. I couldn't beleive what a waste of my money and time that it was. Cool on the inside and crap on the inside. *** This post was edited by stoogemanmoe 2/15/2005 8:19:30 PM ***
