Opa was an indoor Zamperla Wild Mouse roller coaster located at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin.[2] Opa was one of six rides to open in 2006 with the new Parthenon Indoor Theme Park at Mt. Olympus.[3] The ride had a height 44 feet (13 m) and 1,378 feet (420 m) long, with a height requirement of 48 inches.[4]

Opa closed indefinitely on March 6, 2014, after 63-year-old Anthony Theisen fell 17 feet (5.2 m) while riding the attraction, causing him to fall into a coma.[5] On April 1, 2014, Mount Olympus released a statement saying that they have permanently closed the ride.[6]
