    Anyone heard about Opa?

    Yeah I know the Dell's is building an indoor theme park, it was plastered all over coaster news awhile back.

    But, does anyone know who Opa is from, any details, I hate seeing a coaster that is being built and no info about it. I did a search here on the forums and nothing, just news.

    Anyone near the Dell's area hear more then we have?

    There was a press release in Oct with just basic information.
    Here is a copy of an article in the http://www.wiscnews.com
    Here is the info

    Mount Olympus has announced a major expansion of the park. The area's first indoor, open year round, theme park. Covering 43,000 square feet, the new indoor section of the theme park will be called the Parthenon, named after a well-known monument and temple in Greece and fits the theme of the park.

    The Parthenon will add one more roller coaster to the park's collection of coasters. Opa, a spinning roller coaster, will be built for the new section. Opa is something yelled after downing a drink. Other amusement rides are also going to be built.

    The Parthenon will be connected to the theme park and the Treasure Island indoor water park. Both indoor and outdoor sections are included in the admission price. The Dells area, rich in amusement centers, have been lacking year-round thrills until the opening of the Parthenon.

    The Parthenon is set to open in 2006.

    If it's just going to be a small, sorta cheap coaster, my guess would be it's a Reverchon/Zamperla spinning wild mouse, or possibly a Mauer Shone.

    That is what I am thinking, but damn a spinny after 5 superb woodies, you would think something better then a mouse.

    Well a mouse is a good addition to an indoor theme park. They're small, quiet, good for the whole family, and can fit almost any footprint.

    Could it be a Wild Mouse Spinner, like their zig-zag coasters?
