Could this be the best smaller sized (2,500 feet or less) in the world? I'm not sure as I haven't been on all of them, but I would certainly put this at the top of my current list! The first time I rode this I found the first drop to be very intense. I felt butterflies in my stomach and it felt very fast. By the way, when you are at the top you can view the entire downtown of Wisconsin Dells and The Mount Olympus Park. The rest of the ride has intense airtime and the turns are great too! I rode this at night when it had rained. I was very naive as I didn't think we could ride Hellcat when the track was wet. It had stopped raining and I had ( 2 ) of my ( 5 ) rides left. I asked the operator if we could get on and to my amazement we could! I have never felt such an exciting and smoothe ride as I did that night. It is something I have chased every since. I am sure a day will come when I will find out there will be scattered showers in the Dells and I'll just drive up there and enjoy one of the best coasters, when wet, in the world!

The first drop seemed steeper than usual, and the short train meant there was nothing behind to hold you back when you started down. The remainder of the short ride was consistently fast and forceful with lots of airtime and plenty of good hard shoves into the side. My wife rode with me the first time, but waited on the ground during subsequent rides - once through this intense, compact circuit was enough for her!

The Avalanche/Hell Cat is a wood sit down roller coaster. It is a hybrid that was built by PTC in 2004. It is 88' tall, 2,378' long, it is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Although it’s unusual to have such a large coaster at what amounts to a miniature golf attraction, it kind of makes sense when you consider how intense this coaster is. Its power is so concentrated, and so unrelenting, that I don’t really see it succeeding at a larger park where it might be expected to be more or a “major” attraction. That said, this coaster is extremely powerful for its size. I commented earlier that it is a large coaster, but only when compared to the park that it inhabits. It is really a rather small woodie, with a shortish lift hill. However, the first drop is very steep, and the rest of the hills on the course amount to little more than bunny hills, resulting in massive airtime. The coaster essentially circles the park twice, and the banked turns are insane. I was unable to ride arms-up in the back row, though I managed it on my final circuit in the front row. Roughness is minimal, but its intensity is significant, so my 4 total rides in a brief time period were quite tiring. Overall, this is a very unusual coaster in almost every way, and one that is certainly not lacking in the intensity department.

What a rush. This ride just flies through the course and doesn't let up. The airtime is incredible, some of the best I've ever experienced. I rode this for hours and it didn't get old or uncomfortable!

I loved this ride, although its short in height and length its short little train makes the speed almost constant. This ride is full of airtime, It seams to hold a constant fast pace through out the quick hills and turns. I was amazed at just how fast this thing really moves. Looking at it from a far you would say not that big can't be fast. I will tell you once your on board its a totaly differnt feeling, the speed of this ride is very intence and so is the airtime.
vist my site for a second row pov

This is probably one of the most underrated coasters on the globe. After my visit at Mount Olympus, a beautiful wooden coaster caught my eye. I though I was hallucinating, but indeed it was a brand-spanking new S&S woodie named Avalanche. I boarded expecting a rather tame family coaster, but boy was I wrong. This coaster can be best described as relentless. The first drop sets the tone as it absolutely ejected me from my seat and the rest of the ride is incredibly quick providing incredible ejector air on each hill that is unmatched by almost any other coaster. Just when I thought the ride was over, it flew past the station for a second circuit! Avalanche is an absolutely breath-taking coaster.

I have a mostly love relationship with this ride, with a bit of hate mixed in. When I rode it (roughly one year ago) I was pretty shocked at how rough it was. Not that it really hurt, rough, but it was bouncy on the turns, expecially the flat turn right near the lift, and there are times when it jams you pretty hard. But it really is still a great little wooden coaster with some of the best airtime out there, EVERY single hill has some, and even a couple of the turns also!

Quite rough, but has a very nice layout and quite a bit of airtime.

Many people believe that the Raven packs an incredible ride into a relatively small footprint. I happen to agree with them. The Avalanche, however, turns up the small ride intensity to a level far beyond the Raven. There is no slowing down, pesky trim brakes, nor hope of escape. The speed exponentially builds and builds until you crash into the brakes at the station. Nearly every hill after the lift delivers excellent airtime. In fact, I dont remember being in my seat at all over a few of the later hills. When you hit the turns it often feels like youre not going to make it, like the train is going to shoot straight off the track. Yet, somehow you make it, and with less roughness than you would suppose. I rode this 26 times in one day, and would have done more if I didnt have to leave. As everyone else says, dont miss this ride if you go to the Dells. You just might think agree with me that beats the pants off the ostensible star of the Dells. Im sure you know what ride Im talking about.
