Zeus, Mt. Olympus Theme Park - Review

Zeus - Review

Mt. Olympus Theme Park

Ride Facts and Info

A CCI designed Out-and-Back terrain woodie. The ride has one PTC train with individual seatbelts and racheting lapbars.


Ride Layout

Zeus begins with a small drop out of the station and into a left-hand turnaround. The lift hill follows, and takes riders 90 feet in the air, towering above the trees. At the top of the lift there is a left-hand turn leading into the first drop. The layout ahead looks exciting as it goes out into the woods and remains pretty close to the ground.

The first drop is 85 feet and is smooth in the front, but a little bumpy in the back. There then follows three bunny hops with slight inclines and declines that produce some great speed, but very little air. A small climb is made into a large turnaround over a swamp, which features some intense laterals, and is quite bumpy in the back. The turnaround makes a complete 270-degree turn, before taking a small drop, and then a right-hand turn. The track is now lined up to run alongside the out section of the ride.

The next drop is a double down that produces some good ejector air in both the front and back. This was my favorite part of the ride, and represented most of Zeus’s air. There is then a little more airtime in the front at the top of the next hill. A very tiny slope follows, which leads into a banked right-hand turn featuring a small drop. The train then hits the block brakes, and a small drop takes the ride back into the station.


Ride Evaluation

Zeus is quite short, and is more of a speed coaster than an airtime coaster, but it does feature one or two moments of airtime, as well as some laterals on the turnaround. The speed and terrain of Zeus are great, but the ride is too short, especially for a terrain coaster. I was disappointed by this ride as I was expecting it to be longer and filled with air. It does provide a good enjoyable ride, but it just didn't do it for me.
