Those coasters look niice from backstage! Thanks for sharing your shots!
That tour almost killed me because of the heat, but in retrospect it was totally worthwhile!

Mt. Olympus

Let me think.. home to Hades (the one and only) and don't forget about Cyclops (one of my favorite rides out there)
Waterpark with big wave and yeah.. i'll shut up at this time..

I don't remember riding anything that day... i guess i just enjoy taking pictures.
Anyway.. here's a few images from that day.

I can't believe a few people actually managed to keep their hands up on the back row of Cyclops. I didn't DARE! Fantastic photos!

Wow! Those Cyclops shots really capture the intensity of that drop! I'm not sure I've ever seen airtime so well-documented before!

^Haha, I think Cyclops may have been the only coaster there where I did put my hands up. I know I didn't want to risk my arms getting lopped off on Hades or wrenched off on Zeus, and I may not have bothered on Pegasus or the mousey spinny thing, cause they're so lil'.

Those Cyclops pictures are incredible! I've heard the stories about the airtime in the backseat, but wow!

I rode Hades last year and it was very intense. I had to sit down after each ride because it was so intense! I didn't try the water park, as I forgot to pack my swim trunks. :(

I also remember Mt. Olympus employed a lot of East Europeans. It's like they held a job fair at the Czech Republic!

Nice pictures, Hanno!

It's a shame Mt. Olympus isn't managed/maintained better....

Hanno I just now read the last couple of pages so I was a little behind on this report. As always great photos. It made me smile to see you caught one of my boy and me on Superman. Thanks for posting this.
