What is the construction completion timetable for the Hades coaster at Mt. Olympus? Has the train made a circuit, yet?
What is the likely opening day, assuming weather is perfect? The phone operator at Mt. Olympus said that it will definitely be open for Memorial Day weekend, if not sooner, depending on the weather. What does that mean?
Who will get the first ride on this thing, random parkgoers? Will there be a private media day for enthusiasts? I assume so, considering everyone is so "mum". *** Edited 4/12/2005 11:28:13 PM UTC by Bill*** *** Edited 4/12/2005 11:29:41 PM UTC by Bill***
They open the outside rides when they feel like it...and they close it that way too. The weather here in MN has been nice, so I would bet there would be some early weekends, but they won't promise anything in advance. I would recomend calling like on Thurs or Fri before any weekend you could go and checking for that weekend. Mt Olympus is not like a normal park. There are no preview weekends or media days. If the weather is nice and there are a lot of cars driving up and down the strip, they will probably open if they can.
RavenTTD said: If they do have early weekends, I wonder if they will let you buy and use a season pass for them considering the website says the passes are only good Memorial day till Labor day?
You'd have to call them and ask. They've been open the past two weekends. There are five or six go-kart tracks ready, but Zeus is the only coaster that has opened so far (and it's running great). It looks as though Cyclops is nearly ready, however.

I'm toying with the idea of making a jaunt up to the Dells for Memorial Day weekend. I've been wanting to make it up there and Hades will probably be the impetus to finally get those coasters under my belt.
Notice the banking on the bunny hill is TOWARDS the tunnel wall? Also that red "rope thing" hanging from the wall is a light to make the tunnel glow red. As you can see the walls will be lined with that.
I suppose I could be wrong. But if that's a power cord then why have mounts in parallel rows all the way down the wall? Unless they're going to line the walls with something? Sound dampener maybe? Those mounts are there for something.
