I can't search here so if this has been covered before...whatever.

At least they'll be fun to watch?
And I trust no one better then the imported employees Mt. Olympus flies in every year, to rescue me when I'm drowning under hurricane size waves.
Hey now, Romanian chicks are hot. I would risk drowning to be rescued by one of them.
I wouldn't mind being rescued by some of the Russian babes Cp hires each year either!

It's about time someone had the balls to build a "real" wave pool. When The Wave debuted at Geauga Lake, it was allegedly one of the first wave pools, and it put out real waves. They seem to be getting smaller with every new installation.

WHY do you NEED 9' waves? Honestly, what can you accomplish (besides getting someone hurt) with that big of a wave that you couldn't with a 6' wave?

Do I have to start quoting The Beach Boys?!?!?

I think it is cool that this things is supposed to have above average waves for a wavepool. But I too am curious about the safety. Wavepools are dangerous as it is. Of course Mt. Olympus doesn't have any insurance, so what do they care? ;)

Wow... so the discussion degrades to objectifying women you'll never have the nuts to even talk to anyway. Well done. And you wonder why the enthusiast community is such a sausage party. How could women pass up discussion like this?

Big waves are the way to go. If you're not willing to face a 9ft wave in the wild then don't try and face one with a concrete bottom.

I doubt it'll have constant 9' waves. I bet they'll do it every-so-many-times an hour or something like that so the crazies can come out and ride them. Definitely looks fun though.
If you look at the park map they already have a wave pool in the Neptune's Water Kindgom area, and they specifically refer to the new one as a "surf pool." Is there a difference besides the size of the waves? Will you be able to actually surf in the new one?

Those will be really @^*)&)#@ big.
The ones at Typhoon Lagoons are 6 feet!
It just better not have cardboard cut-outs of Ernest Borgnine in a pair of Speedo's.

9' waves would be awesome.

You know what is humorus? Several parks adding their second wave pool while Valleyfair has yet to even add one... (smirks in the direction of CoastaPlaya) ;)
