Wilderness vs. Mt. Olympus?

I am taking my 11 and 13 year olds to the Dells for the first time in August. We were planning to go to Mt. Olympus because the theme parks looked fun in addition to the water parks. However, I noticed several negative reviews of Mt. Olympus and am now considering the Wilderness Territory. Has anyone experienced both?

If your kids want go-carts and roller coasters, you will want Mt. Olympus.

The major issue with Mt. Olympus seems to be a confusion over just how close their various lodging is to the park. Only Hotel Rome is actually at the Park. The rest run up and down the strip and can be a more than a mile away. None of the other Mt. Olympus properties have pools anymore, so you need to make the hike.

To use the Wilderness waterparks, you need to stay at the Wilderness or one of the few properties that have deals for their guests to use the Wilderness.

If go-carts and coasters are not that important, I would consider staying at a hotel that has a discount for Noah's Ark, which is a better waterpark.
