Oh, here is a post I made about Big Chiefs a few days ago. http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forums/thread.asp?ForumID=11&TopicID=8163

Yes. In Wisconsin Dells, Wi there are 3 CCI's. One is a kiddie coaster called Pegasus. Then there is Cyclops, a very intense but small coaster. It is so intense that you have to be 18 to ride in the last few rows. Then there is Zeus, a wonderful airtime filled out-n-back hidden mostly in the woods. The park is call Big Chiefs Karts and coasters. They also have some great go karts. I recommend checking out other places in the area. The ducks or some boat ride to see the "dells" (a canyon basicly), Riverview Park, and Noah's Ark (largest water park in the world). Riverview has a small coaster as well.

Gosh, I wouldn't wish Wisconsin on my worst enemy. but if you have to be there, I suggest you go to Wisconsin Dells (it's an entire city). They have a slew of waterparks (I hear Noah's Ark is the best...and most crowded) and they have Big Chief's Carts and Coasters with a triple scoop of CCI goodness. Zeus is the biggie at a whopping 90ft, but as CCI has proven that is more than enough. Pegasus is the "family" coaster, but it is more thrilling than some adult woodies *achoo*MeanStreak*achoo*. But, IMO, *the* ride there is Cyclops. If you ride in the backseat, there are at least two moments that will have you grabbing for the lap bar (which I might add is the simple "up or down" kind, no ratcheting bars here!). The "Cyclops-drop" rivals the 5th hill on Raven.
They also have some really fun go-cart tracks so that's something else to check out.

You know, it is OK to look in the CoasterBuzz
park database. It isn't quite as complete, but if it's on US soil it's probably there.

Please no parks in Wisconsin! Have them come to Valleyfair the premire park in the upper-midwest! Go Vikings, packers suck border battle!

All right let's take it easy on us Cheeseheads (never worn one of those moronic hats). Great state, heck it's better than Indiana - Just Kidding. And don't even get me started on Minnesota and their lame Purple People Eaters.
Big Chief's is a sweet little park and will only continue to get better. I can't wait for them to install an awesome large CCI like say the Legend. WOW - what an addition that would be.

Big Chief is really cool. Cyclops and Zues are intense woodies, and even pegesus is pretty fun, only in the back though. Then thier like 40 gigantic go kart tracks are the most fun you will have. Also i used to go to Thumb Fun in Door County WI, i think it is defunct now but i hope not. I haven't been up there in like a year or two. :( Great family park though, crazy fun rides and an insane haunted house! It was awesome there. Good memories. Anybody ever been to thumb fun?

I used to go to Thumb Fun in Fish Creek every summer. My parents love Door Country! It closed about two years ago. It is now all housing, condos I think!
Big Chiefs, Riverview Park, and Little A-Merrick-A are the parks in WI. I have no idea what the coasters are at Little A-Merrick-A but there are three. Check the databases here. Of all, I would go to Big Chiefs. The coasters are great, but the fumes from all the go karts can get nausating! When we went last summer in Aug. on a Sunday, the coasters were walk ons but the karts had 15 min. lines all day. One ride op did kick the teens in front of us out of the 18 or older car on Cyclops. Cyclops is the most intense woodie I have been on save The Beast.
