The Mt. Olympus indoor waterpark is among the best of them in Wisconsin Dells. If you are planning a vacation there, you will not go wrong with this one. I have personally been there many times over and consider it one of the best I have been to, so I thought it would be appropriate to write up a review for travelers. When you factor in the inside theme park, great for winter use, you can see why it is one of the most popular of all Dells tourist attractions and among the best waterparks in Wisconsin. In this article, I would like to share some information with you about the park, how to save some money there on tickets and other odds and ends, and some additional attractions you might like to check out at Mt. Olympus.
Mt. Olympus Waterpark Attractions
Which are the best of the indoor waterpark at Mt. Olympus? These are my favorites, but keep in mind they also have a couple of very nice and relaxing hot tubs that you can stretch out in and enjoy.
Mystical Tower Tube Slides
The best water rides at the indoor waterpark would have to be the Mystical Tower tube slides. You ride a tube down them and they move along pretty fast and curve and turn quite a bit in the process. You can go down this one by yourself or with a friend on one of the two person inner tubes provided.
This one is more for little kids, not adults, but parents will have a blast watching their children play on the broken pirate ship. There are several little caverns and places to hide and some nice, small waterslides for the young kids.
Mayan Raging River
This is really a lazy river, for the most part, but it is a great way to relax and stretch out a bit. I like floating around on the river and taking a break from all the hectic running around. There are some areas of significant waves, which I assume is why they call it a raging river, but this one is pretty tame.
Banyon Tree House
There are a couple more great waterslides and these ones do not require tubes. They are relatively fast and you will take several twists and turns. These are my favorite. Although there are only two of them, they are not generally as busy as the
Tips For Wisconsin Dells Mt. Olympus
Over the years, I have come to learn a few things about traveling in Wisconsin dells and Mt. Olympus waterparks. I would like to share some of these tips with you in this review, so you can have a better vacation.
Winter Travel: If you are planning a winter trip, spring break and holiday weekends are crazy. If you can travel during the week, you will have very few people to battle for the waterslides and rides. If you can only take a weekend vacation, try to go on the weekends immediately before or following spring break and holiday weekends, as it is normally less busy. One exception to this are the weekends around Christmas, which can be very busy. You will want to visit the indoor theme park as well for a break from the water.
Summer Travel: Early June is a great time to visit. The Wisconsin Dells area gets jammed packed with tourists starting in the middle of June. Weekend travel gets hard as July approaches. Weekdays are best, as with most tourist destinations, but it might not be possible. If you travel during the summer, be sure to visit the outdoor waterpark and theme park for fun.
Money Saving: Like most hotels, there are peak travel times that command the highest prices. As you look at the calendar, you will find there are great specials and greatly reduced rates on certain days. This is a money saving clue that you must follow. They discount the hotel and ticket packages they are very slow on those dates. Not only will you save a lot of money, but you can also have a lot fewer people to battle in the lines for the waterslides at the outdoor and indoor waterpark.
Hotels: Hotel Rome is very nice and pretty affordable, especially when you get free Mt. Olympus tickets included in the price. There are several other lodging options that include free tickets, so be sure to ask.
Hotel Packages for Mt. Olympus at Wisconsin Dells
This is a great way to save a lot of money on your next vacation. If you buy tickets separately and stay a different hotel without the passes, you will pay a lot more. In fact, you might pay more just for the tickets for your family to enter the indoor waterpark than you would have paid for an all-inclusive Wisconsin Dells vacation to Mt. Olympus.
While Hotel Rome offers great convenience, since it is attached by a covered skywalk to the waterpark inside, there are several other cheap options out there, most of which are just down the road or within walking distance. In addition, there are some camping sites across the street and cabins for rent that include tickets for your entire family.
The Outdoor Waterpark and Theme Park
No review of Mt. Olympus indoor waterpark would be complete without at least mentioning the outdoor activities, just in case you are traveling in the summer, not the winter. The entire park is massive and has lots of great rollercoasters, waterslides, go karts, and theme park type rides that you simply must try. Of all of them, Poseidon’s Rage is probably the single best wave pool I have ever been in. It’s way better than the Big Kahuna at Noah’s Ark in Wisconsin Dells, because it is pretty unique. Rather than make several medium sized waves, it make just one every minute. That one wave is up to 9 feet tall. It is awesome and should be checked out if you are there during the summertime.
I hope you have learned something from this Mt. Olympus indoor waterpark review and can use the information on your next trip to Wisconsin Dells.
