WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis.––Officials at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park have announced plans to rework their largest wooden roller coaster – Hades – and outfit it with new elements including an upside down barrel roll for the 2013 season.
Dubbed Hades 360, the ride will be a technological marvel integrating the underground uniqueness of Hades and adding a 360 degree upside down loop as well as a 135 degree over-banked turn. Plus, Hades 360 will also be equipped with a new state-of-the-art coaster train – a Timberliner from The Gravity Group.
The upgrade to Hades 360 will be engineered and constructed by The Gravity Group, the same team that designed the original Hades. Re-construction is already underway and is expected to be completed by next spring.
