Well, without a doubt I am going to visit this summer. I had been debating if it would be worth it to make the trip whe nI am in St Paul,MN this summer for a week visiting family. Not sure how close I will get to the wave. Maybe watch from a distance. Yeah, I'm a pussy....

Geagua(sp) Lakes used to be pretty big from when I remember. There were little handles all over so you wouldn't be dragged the length of the pool. I remember the simulated undertoe was pretty strong also! I used to cringe everytime the beep signaled the wave was about to go.

X is the best. Tatsu sucks.

I have a question about Mt. Olympus. Do you have to pay to go on the go-karts? As for the new attraction - OMFG!!!

The classic!

^This isnt one of those rides, this is a wave pool, meaning oyu can go in there surferless.




though I gotta say - im sorry but 9ft wave or not, taking down two go kart tracks jus tisnt worth it in my opinion

That's a pretty good point. With nine foot waves it might turn out to be something like the Ron Jon Surf Park that is coming to Orlando.

Either way,those are some serious waves.Time to blow the dust off my board!

Ive just looked at the site again and titan towers is still on it, that means they only got rid of Orius and that means they only got rid of one go-cart track!

Those two tracks were combined into one last year. besides, the park still has A LOT of other tracks.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I really do not mind the loss of the go-kart track their towers NEED to be redone anyway. They are extremely rough.

Check out Typhoon Lagoon's wave pool. Sure, those aren't 9 foot waves, but those things crash and they crash HARD.

Anywho, this looks pretty sweet. I wish the wave pools here in Socal went that high.
