Mount Olympus Wisconsin Dells

Zeus' Outdoor Theme Park at Mount Olympus Wisconsin Dells features some great wooden coasters.

Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park

Overview:

In 2005, the former Big Chief Karts & Coasters merged with the Treasure Island attractions, Family Land outdoor water park and Bay of Dreams indoor water park, to form Mt. Olympus. The "mega park" now boasts an impressive collection of wood coasters, outrageous go-kart tracks, and a huge assortment of water park rides. With its two indoor parks, it also offers weatherproof, year-round fun.

At Zeus' Outdoor Theme Park, the 160-foot tall Hades wood coaster features the world's longest underground tunnel (hence the name), an unusually steep drop, and speeds up to 70 mph. The go-karts, including Titan's Tower and Trojan Horse, incorporate elevated tracks and Greek mythology themes.

Medusa's Indoor Water Park is themed to resemble a Mayan jungle with original native artwork and stone sculptures. Of course, there are water slides as well--over 1,500 feet to be exact--and they twist and turn in the rafters and throughout the large complex. A cute pirate's ship in the center of the park serves as an interactive water play area.

While not as large as Noah's Ark, Neptune's Outdoor Water Park is nonetheless quite big and offers a good array of water slides and other water-filled attractions. Two wave pools offer plenty of surfing action. Triton's Fury and Triton's Rage are two family raft rides. The Demon's Droip and Dragon's Tail are two intense speed slides. Huck's Lagoon and Kiddie City offer watery activities for younger children.

The Mt. Olympus resort also includes two hotels, the Mythos Grill restaurant, and facilities for small conferences and meetings.
