WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (WFRV) – Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park in the Wisconsin Dells has been known for breaking records through innovation, and now, park officials are looking to up its game.
Announced on Wednesday, Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park will be constructing the country’s tallest waterslide, The Rise of Icarus. Construction is set to begin after Labor Day, and officials are planning for the ride to be a whopping 145 feet tall.
Along with the new waterslide, Mt. Olympus will also be adding a major new outdoor children’s water play area for 2024. The cost of these new outdoor water attractions is estimated at $8 million.
As previously stated, Mt. Olympus has been known for its innovation as the park was the first in the United States to construct a rotating water slide, known as Medusa’s Slidewheel.
