“Disappointing Theme Park but Clean Rooms”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The standard two queen bed rooms are basic, but clean. The front desk staff was fair, not as polished as in previous years. We went in October in order to use utilize the coasters and go-carts as we have in years past. Unfortunately it was a let down. They obviously cater to the older kids as the rides open on Friday night were only the coasters and the go-carts. There were no younger children's outdoor rides open. (they were open on Saturday) They took away the scary entertainment of Mnt. Olympus due to complaints last year from parents with small children. It was actually quite lame. Hades is closed for the season and was the Poseiden go-cart track. This was a huge disappointment. Although the rate was only $59, because of the lack of entertainment, and the largest go-cart and coaster tracks closed, it didn't capture the interest of our teens as it has in years past. Hotel Rome does not guarantee all of the coasters and go-carts to be open, however they have been in previous years. We will only return if they go back to how things have been run in the past.

We love to get customer feedback and are thrilled to learn that you are a repeat customer of many seasons. As a repeat customer, we are sure that you have noticed changes from one season to the next as we attempt to keep things fresh and appealing to the wide range of our customer base.

This year, in an effort to appeal to that wider customer base, we chose to present a “Not So Scary” Night at the Theme Park. This was not based on too many complaints from families with smaller children, but was merely a business decision to try an alternative format for October weekends. We’re sorry to hear that this decision didn’t appeal to your family and will make note of your comments.

As is the case every year, the Wisconsin weather dictates what outdoor theme park rides we are able to open each day. We hope that you understand that the decision on which rides to have open are dictated by our desire to provide a fun, safe environment for our guests and their families. This year we have had some very interesting weather with days in the 70’s followed by afternoons in the 30’s! With such drastic changes happening so quickly, the selection of rides able to be safely and comfortable kept open was severely limited. We’re hoping that these odd weather patterns return to a more predictable pattern so that we can provide the level of entertainment you experienced in the past.

Again, we thank you for your feedback and hope that our explanations have helped to assure you that Mt Olympus Water and Theme Park Resort will continue to strive to offer you the best in Water and Theme Park fun throughout the seasons!

I brought my kids because it was affordable, overall a good value. The staff was friendly and indoor attractions decent. The location is close to all of the Dells activities We will defiantly be back in the warmer weather to enjoy all of the outdoor activities!

I stayed with a friend and his wife so our room had a master bedroom and a smaller bedroom. I wouldn't have minded the smaller room but it had an opening at the top that allowed for less privacy. I didn't like that at all. But if you have kids, i guess that doesn't matter.
I was there late October and it was getting chilly outside, so no outdoor waterpark. What was nice was that the stay included access to the park and anything that was open at that time. At that time, its pretty much two roller coasters, two tracks of go carts and a few other holloween themed attractions.
It was a nice short trip but i would not recommend it if you are trying to get away for a few days. Although it is nice if you are just getting away for about two days.
A lot of other non-mt olympus attractions were closed due to the season ending.
Nothing spectacluar, just an ok trip.

We decided to take our children on a mini vacation to Dells for a few days, after researching Internet and looking for something reasonable and fun I stumbled on a Mt. Olympus. I would say the watermark is a medium rather then large, amusement park inside is not all that big either, outside rides are better for older children, there was only 2 rides for my 5 year old! If you are planning a short trip to the dells this is a perfect place, but if its a week long vacation stay at the bigger resorts like Kalahari or Wilderness

I was very skeptical due to recent reviews on the various review sites. I wanted to get away somewhere close and chose to chance it with Mt. Olympus. We arrived to check in at Hotel Rome as this is currently the only check in area. We had a non Rome room booked according to the Web site, and we were offered to upgrade to Hotel Rome, I chose not to due to budget issues. The wait time was not too bad, and went rather smooth. We wanted to use the park right away and we had arrived early, our room was not ready yet, but to be expected as it was only 10:30. I was told that we could go to the park right away and we would receive a notification text when our room was ready which was pretty cool. I got the text at about 1:30 that our room was ready, and we needed a break for food. We went to Building 10 room 412 and we found a basic, clean room, with new wood flooring, rustic wood beds, and a bunk as we expected from the pictures. We used the microwave and refrigerator in the room for a quick snack and went back to the park for more fun. I, and my family had a great time, do not be afraid to enjoy this great resort. Be prepared to walk, because this is a large resort, and there is a lot to see and do.

Room Tip: I liked our room as it was on the even side of Building 10 that faced the woods, not the parking lot...

My experience with Hotel Rome at Mt. Olympus is negative. The one positive I will say is the room was incredibly clean. The price for the hotel and amusement park passes is way overpriced. As we all know the weather in the Dells can be very chilly. The day we stayed here was very overcast and cold (although it was supposed to be hot). We tried the indoor park which was small and mediocre at best. The outdoor parks were mediocre including the worlds slowst lazy river which you had to stay in your rafts.... i was unimpressed. Hades was cool and that was the ONLY thing I enjoyed. Save your money! go to NOAHS ARK!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont Stay Here!
