This is a very nicely done long flume. While it doesn't have anything unique about it as far ast theming, the trees really add something to the experience. (which is a common theme for a lot of adventureland rides). It gives the feel of being out back in a real river like setting floating on a real log. Its got two drops though the first one really isn't much of anything. It's got some real good speed to it. Including a few spots where I actually got splashed by the rapids of the water. A rare thing for flume rides not counting the drops.

Pretty good flume, though the wait was pretty long and by far the longest wait I had at this park. The course was low to the ground and pretty fast and had two drops. The big drop wasnt overly good as I have been on bigger and steeper, but its good for the size of the park. Also, I got a little wet.

Traditional flume ride that is fast with loading time. Has two nice drops and goes at a pretty good speed. Gets you wet also on a hot day. Fast, fun, rerideable,long duration, and large capacity.

This is an ok ride. When I went to the park this was second longest wait(the longest was for the Raging River) the line never seemed to move. On a cool day it the line probobly way shorter(but I wouldnt want to get wet anyway so it doesnt matter). When you get out of the station you barely even are moving, but then you get to the short hill that has zero drop. But be warned if you are sitting in the front you will get soaked. Then you get plenty of speed and go to the big hill. There is barely a drop on the big hill, so dont be scared(and smile they take your picture). You should go on this if there isnt much of a line, but if there is your time will be better spent on anothre ride.

APPEARANCE-9 A very old school looking flume with the small drop then larger drop. It reminds me of the one they took at at CP before putting in the Raptor. CAPACITY-5 This line just crawls due to only using one side of the station. By far my longest wait of the day. RIDE QUALITY-8 Fun traditional flume. If you are one of those reviewers who takes off a flume because it does not have thrilling drops this wont be your ride. For that matter this probably wont be your park. FUN-8 Good ol fashioned flume fun. I like how the flume moves low to the ground and at pretty good speed. RERIDE-9 The line could keep me from a second trip but I doubt it. Definately my favorite of the rides at Adventureland that I only rode once. OVERALL-39 AVG-7.8 I wiil go with the 8 because it also works well with the skyride adding unique experiences to both.
