MT. OLYMPUS THEME PARK
Formerly: Big Chief Carts & Coasters
Park News - (6/29/18) According to this post on Twitter, Mt. Olympus is performing some track refurbishment work on their Zeus wooden coaster, with more work slated to come this fall.
(5/16/18) Good times at Mt. Olympus this week it seems, as a massive fight breaks out between guests who are both brawling with fists and hurling large plastic chairs at each other. The reason? Apparently someone grabbed a chain from one table to another. People... sigh... am I right? They ruin everything. Follow the link to see some action videos of the melee in action. Vince McMahon would be proud.
(2/15/18) According to the local news a fire broke out at the Mt. Olympus theme park at 4am, Wednesday morning. They say that the fire started in a maintenance building and that it took about an hour for firefighters to bring everything under control. The maintenance building is a total loss, but the rest of the park seemed to be unaffected and there were no injuries.
(5/30/17) A reader fresh from visiting Mt Olympus sent in an interesting report that the hill you climb after exiting the tunnel on Hades 360 for the last time appears to have been reprofiled and shortened by about 15-20 feet. If it still hits this area at the speed it normally does, this newly profiled hill should become a major airtime element starting this season.
2018 - The Underground - (6/21/18) The Underworld is coming to Mt. Olympus according to a teaser ad on the park's website. No date is listed, only a "Coming Soon" for what they are calling the "World's Only Underground Go-Kart Track". If the images on the website are anything to go by, this may be a modification to the old Poseidon Go Cart track, which doesn't seem be listed on the park's website anymore, but the park map does mention a Poseidon's Underground go kart track.
