I'm going next month, do they let you surf the waves like on a boogie board (and if so, do they rent them out)?

I am so up for 9 foot waves, where I don't have to worry about dropping in on a psycho local, sharks, and all manner of stingers.

An American Classic.

Looks almost as good as The Wave from Geauga Lake from the 80's. At least they have the really huge waves. A lot of parks seem to be too afraid to use waves more than 3 feet tall.

I was there Friday. Here is pics of wave rolling in.
Not every wave was 9ft later in the day, they were maybe at 5ft.

^Holy cow! The friggen thing actually BREAKS! That's insane! I can't wiat to be there!


As for hte person whoa sked about boogie boards, I somehow doubt they'll allow them, this isn't a surf pool, its actually a rathernarrow wave pool, and if you surf you are very likely to hit people on the way

You just lost the game

What I dont understand is, what's the point of having waves that big if you cant surf them? I mean, I really think "bobbing" in the water looses its purpose once the waves start breaking. Now you have an attraction whose only real marketing draw is all and all rather pointless.

Just my thoughts.

The park could close the pool to the public for a morning or afternoon so people can ride the waves on their boards or boogie boards.

Can anyone post some pic's of the waves up close... just to see how high they really are.

I don't know, but that wave pool screams surf lessons! If Mt. Olympus starts doing that, that will draw even more people to the park!

I think they'd do that. Typhoon Lagoon here in Florida has waves just like that, and every once in a while they close off the further most area for surfers.
