^Maybe so, but I thought Cyclops was a one-trick pony (if you were in the backseat). The rest of the ride was just average.

But it is one helluva good trick.

Those close up shots are just awesome to show the backrow airtime on Cyclops. You take really awesome pictures.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Hanno, just awesome! I thought the back seat thing was 50% truth/ 50% gimmick. Yah, uhm, 100% truth for sure. That was insane and I don't think anyone can be prepared for it, at least during the first go.

I wish it wasn't overcast that day, it gave the park this dreary kind of atmosphere, which didn't help its case. All and all, the woodies were cool and that wave pool was a one-of-a-kind. For their 2012 major attraction, they should add Power Park style Go Karts. :)

^Really!? I think the majority of us were VERY happy that it was overcast and not 110 degrees that day! ;)

Some of those pictures are down right frightening. I see real fear on some faces I know. =)

Nice!

After Mount Olympus it was time to move on but before leaving the Dells and make our way to Valleyfair we had one more planned stop.

Day 10: Timberfalls

Last time i was there (07) they had a lightning strike the evening before we got there. That ride session is in the top of my all time favorite memories.
Anyway, story telling is not one of my good points (especially after such a long time) so i will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
Nice little place with a mini golf course, logflume and a coaster.
When in the area, don't forget to take a ride on this one ;)

But wait, the day was not over just yet.

As a surprise we made a quick stop for a bonus credit.

Day 10: Knuckleheads was the place to be.

This ride, i think, was hilarious looking at the reaction of people riding it.
I spent time trying to get some pictures of everybody having fun (and forgot to ride it)

a well.. guess i'll have to go back there someday..

enjoy

You can really tell that Avalanche-Hellcat has crazy airtime, if even my rather unimpressive patch of hair was flying around. Sure, it may surround a mini-golf course, but it beats the hell out of anything at Mt. Olympus.

There is a good reason most people kept their hands down on HellCat. And no good reason that I didn't. (Perhaps I was brain-damaged by Hades.) Enjoyed the airtime, though!
