Hades360: Tear it down or Iron Horse!!!


Cyclops also needs a complete retrack somewhere down the line, but just fixing a couple parts should work for now. Also, I think some new padded trains might be a nice addition.

Honestly, Pegasus just needs to be torn down. There are no turns to "fix" because every single time the ride changes directions, it hurts LIKE HECK. Just tear it down and replace it with another crappy coaster. It's probably better than the miserable existence that is Pegasus.

Zeus is actually an okay out and back. A retrack would be spot on.

Hades needs some TLC from RMC, if you know what I mean. Maybe if Mt. Olympus sold all their crappy motels they could afford it. :p

Mt. Olympus has so much potential. I feel if they genuinely focused on researching similarly sized parks like Holiday World or Kennywood, they could make improvements to the park overall. The fact that there are curbs in the middle of the midways, and no proper changing rooms are some of the things that concern me. I want to like the place, I really do, but I can't with how many crappy visits I have had.

I remember Zeus beating the hell out of me back around 2007-2008.

Favorite Flats (in no particular order) - MoA NU Brain Surge, Chance Chaos, Flying Scooters, drop towers
I take a stand against unnecessary neutering of rides. Restore Revolution, Blue Streak, Dorney Thunderhawk, Raging Bull, etc...

^I don't know if my body just couldn't feel anything after Hades 360, but I didn't think that it was that bad

Both Zeus and Hades were pretty brutal in 07.

Man Falls from Roller Coaster at Wisconsin Dells Theme Park
Authorities say a 64-year-old man has fallen off an indoor roller coaster at a Wisconsin theme park.

The Sauk County sheriff's office dispatch center says the man fell 15 to 20 feet and landed on the floor Thursday.

The dispatch center says it happened around 5:30 p.m. at Mt. Olympus Theme Park & Water Park Resort.

Paramedics were called. The man's condition is not known.

^I knew it was only a matter of time for that park. Without more details, I guess I should not assume the park is to blame, but...

Hope the guy is okay.

^This doesn't surprise me all that much. The ride is extremely jerky going around the corners on the upper half. When I was at the park a few years ago, one of the wheels fell off and a car valleyed. Beyond that, I'm just unimpressed with Mt. O with this coaster. They could have built a Vekoma Roller Skater and they go for a portable mouse coaster with mouse cars. The entire indoor park just has no consistency in themeing.
