Hades 360 trip report 5/30/22
Absolutely mind blowing.
Top 10 worthy (for various reasons).
Doesn't get the praise it deserves.
I've been wanting to ride this coaster since it originally opened and this was my first time to Mt Olympus, so I was REALLY excited to ride it. It FAR exceeded my expectations.
I had a total of four rides. First two rides in the back row. Third rid in row six and fourth ride in row three. The consistent speed of the coaster makes an incredible ride in any seat. Typically the back row is my favorite seat but on this coaster, it didn't matter which seat.
This coaster has been reviewed many times so I don't need to break down every little detail.
The most outstanding feature for me was the 800 feet trip through a pitch black tunnel TWICE! There really isn't an accurate way to describe it, it just has to be experienced.
The pace of this coaster is in a class by itself because it feels like it's going a steady 70 mph all the way to the brakes. Add in the fact that there is no mid course brake and no trims anywhere on the course and it's a recipe for coaster bliss.
I have no idea when I will return to Mt Olympus, but I certianly will at some point as long as Hades 360 is running.
Quick mention that Zeus also exceeded my expectations and Cyclopse was noteworthy as well. The trifecta of Hades 360, Zeus and Cyclopse will be tough to beat for three wood/hybrid coasters in one park. Until I made it to Mt. Olympus I would have given the trifecta title to Holiday World. Now it's a photo finish tie for me.
Hades 360 was so impressive to me it has earned the rank of my #2 all time favorite coaster, just barely behind the Voyage as my #1.
I would love to hear from anyone else who has ridden Hades 360.
