Kick The Sky's avatar Not granting the park any breaks, but, remember this is the park that brought you the famous sign, "No Insurance, Ride at Your Own Risk." I haven't gone this year, but the park came a long way last year from where it was in previous years. It's got a long way to go and a lot of harsh lessons to learn. One wonders with the waterpark buyout if they didnt bite off more than they can chew? Time will tell.

Moosh, I wish I knew you and the Cali boys were out here. I would have made it a priority to come out and show you guys the same hospitality you all showed me when I was out in Cali last year.

Certain victory.

3. Triton, the water coaster, can manage about 100 people an hour. If you want to ride do it first thing in the day.

Do you mean Dive to Atlantis?

Glad you liked the woodies. I love Hades and Avalanche rocks my face off.

Mamoosh's avatar KTS - this was a VERY last-minute trip for me, sorry I didnt' let ya know.

RavTDD - yes, I meant DtA....my bad ;)

That is not the first time I have heard DtA called Triton. Was the name changed or was it announced at the same time as Triton's Tower or something? It confuses me sometimes because I thought it was Triton at one point and now they have some water slides named that.

janfrederick's avatar Sounds like a nice little dream trip. I think I'll have to make it one of these days. Nice report M, not too long and had me drooling...well the coasters anyway. ;)

1. Hades cycle times [dispatch to dispatch] were in the 4-5 min range. That means about 300 people per hour were riding. Good luck to everyone at ACE Con this year.

Actually ERT went very well. Most of us rode multiple times earlier in the day anyway and we were given assigned time slots to gurantee a night ride during the scheduled ERT. All coasters were open for ERT whicj just made it that much better.

It was so hot everyone was in the water parks so getting on Hades wasn't that tough during the day.

Hades is just an insanely fun ride! They turned the tunnel lights on for us so we could see the track which was just great.

Earlier in the day today (6/23) Avalanche at Timber Falls was deserted. Several of us got 10 rides without getting off and a couple people that stayed around longer than I did reported riding 30-40 times.

There be wood in Wisconsin!

I was there riding at both parks as well on the 18th. I was over at Avalanche in the evening between 7-8 and then Mt. Olympus from 8-9:30. It sounds like I just missed you guys. Anyway, glad you got to ride them Moosh. It's funny how these little impromptu trips can sometimes sneak up on you. In a good way.:)
