Poseidon's Rage

Ever since Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park debuted the Poseidon's Rage wave pool in 2007 I've been wanting to know more about it... mostly because of its advertised 9 ft. waves.

9 ft. waves seemed extremely well... extreme to me, but apparently the wave pool has been quite a success for the park thus far. The 48,000 sq. ft. attraction holds 1.3 million gallons of water, has a maximum capacity of 4,000, and is capable of creating a massive 9 ft. wave ever 90 seconds. The wave pool cost the park a hefty $7 million to build.

WhiteWater, the company who created the poll, has a nice feature on it on their website, which finally allowed me to get the facts on the addition I had been seeking for a while now. It's really an incredible addition to a water park considering today's tight legal/insurance standards for the industry!

The theme park followed up Poseidon's Rage this past summer with the River Troy, the world's fastest river ride.
