What a ride: Wooden roller coasters

Mt. Olympus has been known to do some incredible things with wooden roller coaster, but Hades 360 is in a whole new league! The first of its kind, Hades 360 is a wooden rollercoaster that goes upside down before plummeting into an underground tunnel. The engineering of this coaster was considered quite a feat, and those visiting the Dells aren't the only ones amazed. Relying heavily on concrete and steel, China does not use timber for construction so things built of wood are a rarity for them; especially something as impressive as Hades 360.

For more on the engineering and architecture specifics of Hades 360 check out this article.

The building of Hades 360 was as unique as the coaster itself and quite a sight to see! You can watch the magic of the engineering and architecture genius required to build Hades 360
