Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells
Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells
The Wisconsin Dells is famous for its major water parks. In fact the Dells area is well known as the water park capital of the world. Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells is known as the largest outdoor water theme park in the Dells with over 100 acres of fun and adventure for the whole family.
So welcome mortals to the realm of Zeus, Neptune, Medusa and Poseidon. In the very heart of the Wisconsin Dells is a place where Greek Gods reside and mere mortals tremble in fear! Let us explain…..
The very air of Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells shimmers with power of Zues, and the faint of heart just may run afraid. Do you have the courage and the convictions to stand upon the ground of the God’s and enter into their playground?
Outdoor Water Park
Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells offers real value and entertainment during the long summer months with not one but two outdoor parks. For those who prefer to stay dry, there is Zeus’ Playground theme park and for those who prefer a really wet and wild time, try the adventures to be had in the undersea water park world of Neptune’s Water Kingdom which offers over 37 waterslides, and 2 wave pools.
The Big Waves
You want to see a for real wave pool … Poseidon’s Rage is not for everybody. So make sure you test the waters before you let your youngsters get too far out. But for those who like to body surf and ride the waves, you can go all day since the big machine keeps them coming often and big.
If you arrive at the park early enough, consider placing towels in the Poseidon area as the chairs go very quickly. This is the best wave pool I've ever seen with some seriously amazing waves.
The wave pool is awesome and will give you a great ride. This area can get very crowded and sometimes treacherous with too many people. I would recommend to arrive early, stay late, or arrive in the evening for "Night at the Park".
Tidal Wave pool
This gigantic pool at Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells is where you can ride the wild surf or lay on the beach and watch all the action. The waves create an ocean of fun! So, catch a wave all the way in or just bob on the breakers. The shallow water area is well marked for non-swimmers and those who want to lounge in the waves and enjoy a little surf action. This is much more kid friendly as the wave pool releases smaller wave upon wave and you can use tubes to just enjoy.
Waterslides and Tube Slides
Choose from the many, and play all day on the:
Blue Magnum Mat body slides
A series of twisting slides, loaded with turns, drops and a few more surprises right down to final impact!
Thunder and Lightning speed water park slide
Within a flash you come crashing down the slide pouring through a watery, winding journey into the run out.
Triton’s Fury raft ride
Up to three family members or friends will scream down this 340-foot long raft ride after you hit the 90-degree turn. Triton’s Fury and Triton’s Rage are multi-person raft rides and allows an entire family to sit in one big tube and enjoy the ride down.
Triton’s Rage raft ride
Sure to be a family favorite at Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells. You climb a 5-story tower and then prepare yourself for the 550-foot drop through a variety of twists and turns.
Triton’s Challenge matt slide
Triton’s Challenge is a bit different in the respect that you go down the speed slide by yourself. However, there are six side by side lanes which allow you to race friends and family.
Double Barrel tube slide
This ride is in a tight tunnel - never knowing what is around the next bend as you slide through this winder in an inner tube for two.
Double Trouble tube slide
An awesome slide for mom or dad with a child. A great slide to test the waters of young and old alike with and a nice splash at the end.
Deuces Wild tube slide
Ride high on the curves and race down the straight a ways on this slide.
Demon’s Drop body slide
If heights and speed make your day this is one of the best in the world. This slide is nearly a straight down 90 foot vertical drop. You actually are in a free fall and so the rush on this slide is incredible … make sure your swimming suit is tied on tight.
Dragon’s Tail double drop body slide
Is another tall fast slide that starts some 7 stories up and a second half that just might keep you climbing for more. Once again, tie those suits on tight.

Outdoor Theme Park
Come all ye heroes to the playground of the king of the Gods and test your courage against the wrath of Hades, tame Pegasus, battle the Cyclops and finally meet Zeus himself. Have ye the courage?
The roller coasters seem to be the biggest attraction in this area of the park. Arrive early if want to ride more than once before the lines get too long. Make sure you wear comfortable foot wear. One – there is a lot of walking, two and most important - you are required to wear them on any dry ride at Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells.
Extreme Roller Coasters
They call it Hades for good reason. The towering drop is impossible to go unnoticed no matter where you are at Mt Olympus. Hades was voted Best New Ride by Amusement Today and Golden Ticket Award for Best New Ride by The Travel Channel…and I can see why.
The first drop of 140 feet seems like nothing compared to the 65 degree 160 foot drop that sends you underground underneath the parking lot where you are unable to see anything, and then emerging on the other side swooping around and back down underground one final time to quickly make a few more turns. I have to tell you there was a lot of screaming going on, including from myself. If you like roller coasters and want some excitement, Hades will be your favorite ride at Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells.
Another big fast ride with quick corners. This one climbs 90’, hits 60 mph, on a long track through the forest and drops you back home with a thud.
For us, we thought this was the best coaster out of the four. Zues will give you a good ride, but remember to scoot up some on the drops, because you might tend to slam your back up against the back of the seat.
Not quite as big as Hades or Zues, but might be a better fit for those that can’t or should not be on the big tracks.
This one was not as fast and long as the others so it’s perfect for those who aren’t crazy about roller coasters or for smaller children. It’s no sleeper though, so don’t get too comfortable. Great track for the entire family.
Compete for the championship and become the reigning hero with speed, nerve and control. Enter the belly of the Trojan Horse, fly across Helios Track, brave the underwater lair of Poseidon’s underwater realm, and win the heart of Hermes. With 9 go kart tracks to choose from at Mt Olympus Wisconsin Dells, we weren’t quite sure which one to choose.
We decided to try the Trojan Horse, mainly because it looked the coolest. The Trojan Horse is 3 stories tall and brings you around and around the famous landmark.
Hermes' Turbo Track
This could be one of the faster tracks for those who want more of a challenge.
Indoor Water Park
This is a six story, multi-towered, underwater go-kart track. You can accelerate through the twists and turns of the raceway and actually plunge under the water.
This is longest the longest track in the park.

Tips & Ideas
Arrive 30 minutes early to get closer up parking and in line for quick entry.
Arrive early and ride the popular rides as often as possible to avoid the long lines mid day.
Arrive early - you might want to rent a locker. We found the lockers right next to the Parthenon Indoor Theme Park and Neptune’s Outdoor Waterpark.
You are not allowed to bring in ANY food or beverage carry-ins. They WILL check your bags, so keep the cooler in your car with soda / water & snacks. You can leave and re-enter the park with your wristband.
We put down towels to save a spot in the wave pool area early - the chair space goes quickly.
Food is generally expensive - but we expect this at any water park, theme park or sporting event type venue. It's your vacation – so live it up!
There are water fountains at several places throughout the park. So if it’s hot today, you might want to keep and refill your plastic bottles after you purchase one.
Clothing with inappropriate words, wording, phrases or graphics are prohibited.
I would highly recommend wearing aqua shoes or sandals. There is a lot of walking area in this water and theme park. Avoid buying necessities if possible and bring your own sun screen, towels, footwear, sun glasses, hat, etc..
Bring some type of foot wear or sandals as you are required to wear them on any dry ride. Several areas in the park close at different times on different days. Check out the posted signs at the ride entrances. Some areas close at 7 pm, while others stay open until 9 pm.
Plan your trip for the weekdays if possible to help avoid the larger crowds and the long lines.
