Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park~Part 1

Mt. Olympus Water park was one of our favorite stops this summer. As you have read in my previous posts, our family took a trip to Wisconsin in July of this past summer. We had the opportunity to visit different places, thanks to my wonderful husband. One of the great things we did was visit the Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park.

In this post, I will be talking about the waterpark.  Prior to leaving for Wisconsin, we did some research on things to do in the Wisconsin Dells area.  We were here before when we came out in 2012. We only spent a few hours up here, and those hours consisted of shopping and miniature golf.  We found a fantastic deal online for an overnight package, so we took advantage of it.

 

 

When we first got there, we made a quick stop in the main lobby to register for our room.  We also receive our wristbands. The wristbands got you in and out of the parks and you could charge food and souvenirs to your room as well.  That was very convenient when you don’t want to worry about carrying money or a credit card.

Once our registration was complete, we parked our car in the lot for the water park.  As we started to get out of the car, there was a torrential downpour.  We waited for a few minutes, and just like that, it stopped and we were able to go into the park.  The first place we headed was Poseidon’s Rage.  It is their signature wave pool, complete with a 9 foot wave.  Let me tell you, it was a blast………literally.  Hubby and oldest went right out there and got into the action.  Little man and I stayed back pretty far, and it still knocked me on my posterior. Little man body surfed all the way in.

Once we experienced the wave a few times, we went and checked out some of the other attractions. Hubby and oldest went to check out the body slides, and Jer and I went to the other wave pool(that was more to my liking. You could sit in tubes and just relax).

Once we finished with that, we took some time and check out the indoor water park.  I really enjoyed that because they had a lazy river where you could either ride a tube or walk/swim.  What a great way to relax. The only downside to the indoor waterpark was the intense chlorine smell.  But that is pretty common in all indoor waterparks.

Once we had our fill of the water rides, we went back to our locker to find the text that our room was ready.  We changed into our clothes, and drove back to our hotel room.  Besides the main hotel, they have several cottages spread out around the area.  We got one of the bungalows not to far from the park itself.  It wasn’t close enough to walk back to the main building,  but that wasn’t really an issue.  The hotel room was very nice.

As you can see, my family looks pretty tired out from all the water fun.  In another post, I will be discussing all the fun we had at the theme park. That was a crazy adventure that deserves its own story. If you are ever in this area, this is a great place to take you family for the day or an overnight getaway.

What is your favorite overnight getaway? Would you go back again?

  6. I’ve really been wanting to do a waterpark like this, but especially in the middle of the winter. I think the closest one to us is Williamsburg, VA.

  8. That sounds like an absolutely perfect overnight stay!! We went to Key Lime Cove this summer, that’s a water place too, and we spent the night. It was fun and just the refresher we needed.
