I got some excellent night rides on this in 2007, and it was sad to see that since then hell was riding this coaster. They've fixed the track (I hope) & added a gimmick, now if only they can fix the surly, smug, Eastern European seasonals running the ride.

Donkeys are my way of life!

I think the gimmick works for this one though. Instead of that big, slow hill (though it did look cool) its a roll now, I think it'll be more fun and hold much more speed!
Coaster Count: 93
Top 5 coasters: Millennium Force, I305, El Toro, Skyrush, Boulder Dash
2014 Plans: SF:NE, Knoebels, Lake Compounce (Maybe hopefully) Kennywood, Waldameer and of course: Hershey and SF: Great Adventure

The whole turnaround is being changed. Since the barrel roll is much lower than the old hill it reaches the ground again much faster, so what used to be a big sweeping turnaround will now be a quicker dive to the ground followed by a 135 degree banked turn.

Yeah, now that I know that 90% of it is being re-tracked I'm really hoping this will be a new beginning for the coaster and that the new train won't rip it up as much as the PTC did.

Yep, only one single Timberliner. Because of how high the station is and that there's no transfer track, currently no plans to add a 2nd train, even though it could use it. We'd also have to see if they're sticking with the 20-capacity train or bumping it up to 24.

Don't worry. Mt. Olympus's horrible management will make it Unrideable by 2014 again. I want them to buy A B&M Coaster and see how badly they can maintain it after 2 years.

It is a nice thought, but they'd only be able to afford a used one. For the Price of a single B&M they could probably build three wooden coasters.

Yeah, if they had two trains on Hades... it be done for by mid season due to the track taking twice the beating it does with one train.
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child."
Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

So I just realized I should post some of these photos that I took in the dells this past weekend. The park was OPEN. Well, at least the indoor park was open and one coaster and go-kart track outside were open. Thank you Mt. Olympus management for little ally saying “Yeah we don’t care if you walk in the construction area and take pictures of it!” The things you can do at that park is a little scary. Almost wants to make me start a amusement park safety and security consulting firm someday.

Anyway, here are the pictures.

Enjoy!
