I had noticed it disappeared off their ride list in some paperwork we got at work a month ago, and thought nothing of it. I just went back to look and see if I remembered that correctly, and sure enough, it was gone.

I'm not too familiar with the park, but how many go-kart tracks are there?

EDIT. Nevermind, I thought I had a hunch, but realized I was wrong. :roll:

Paul - I think it was closer to 30 people per hour when I rode.

Now the big question, what is going to be my new lowest rated steel "coaster" in Mitch's poll. Will Goudurix undertake X:/No Way Out as my least favorite?

Haha! I totally brought this up in the chat last night! I'm proud of myself... ;)

Anyway, what made the ride so horrible?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

My neck is already hurting at the thought of riding that POS in June.

For the record, I did NOT count Dive to Atlantis as a credit!!! :Pr

I never got the Riverview credits as I either never had time or they were closed when I visited.

As for Dive to Atlantis, I got the credit, and I will not miss the ride. Sure it was a way to cool off, but it was such a pointless ride. When the park bought the adjacent properties, the ride had no purpose as people could just go to the water park to cool off.(and have more fun doing so)

Slightly off topic, but I've been slightly concerned about Timber Falls. On my last visit, they(I assume an owner/manager) said that Mt. Olympus has hurt them a lot since 2005. Hopefully the park survives as it is an awesome tiny park.

Gee, Dells is turning into a coaster slaughterhouse.

It wouldn't surprise if Riverview closed, they wouldn't offer much competition to Mt Olympus and some of the other attractions in the area.

It might be possible that Dive To Atlantis may be sold to a crap park near you. Wow Little Titans will be the only steel at Mt Olympus now, not that anyone on this site over 12 will be allowed to ride it.

Because it didn't do anything of substance. You float through the slowest, most pointless flume section, then do one dip, big drop, splash, done.

Now add in the fact that the lazy ride ops made the line brutal if there was more then 5 people waiting. 20 to 30 people in line honestly would probably be an hour+ wait.

Just thought I would bump this thread to provide a fairly amusing picture:
