At No Coaster Con, S&S said that a screamin' swing was being built in the dells, but they didn't know where...

I was in the Dells with Director_Guy and even in the smaller wavepool at the wilderness, it was hard to stay above water in the 5 ft wavepool. I'm guessing that they won't allow tubes into the 9ft wavepool. If they do, then I'm sure that there'll be problems.

I Love Donkeys!

The following link shows an updated map with Apollo's Swing included.

I heard from an employee that they plan on possibly expanding the Athena gift shop at the exit of the park. They may also tear down the Top Secret attraction to build a new hotel. Let's all hope that last part is true. :)

Awesome, Mt. Olympus sound like it will regain some of my respect after my last visit. I just hope that this is a large swing like Sky Hawk, and is not an up charge ride.

The classic!

Durrr... call me an ACEr, but is it just me or do those walls at the side of the pool dont look NEARLY high enough to be the supposed height the waves are going to be? :acer: Not to mention it doesn't appear to be a very high capacity pool.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

What ?

9ft. should be slightly above Nick's (Nick = guy above, park owner) hands. And the walls are ALOT higher than that:

Definitely high enough.

:omg:

Wow, so how long until a kid drowns in this pool? I'm giving it to the end of the month, but hopefully parents are smart enough to not have kids that far into the pool. This pool is impressive, but why not expand the old wave pool instead of building a whole new one, but hopefully they replace the old wave pool with a new water ride(tornado, large tube slide, etc) since it will probably get few swimmers now.
