A view of the ride

Cyclops is a wooden terrain roller coaster located at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, USA. It was designed by Dennis McNulty and Larry Bill, and built by Custom Coasters International, Inc.

The last car of the train is notable among coaster enthusiasts for the intense ejector "air-time" experienced during the ride. Because of this, only riders over the age of eighteen are allowed in the last two rows.

It opened in 1995.[1]

Design

Layout

After the lift hill, riders are sent into a swooping left-hand 180 degree dive followed by three short hills. The ride then travels under Zeus's lift hill and dives down a right-handed drop in front of the station, before circling up and to the right back into the station.

Trains

Single train with 5 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 20 riders per train. The train is built by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc..
