I love flumes! This truly is a great flume. The one drop it has is the best flume drop in New England, but it does only have one drop. So CLP's Policy Pond Log Flume is the best flume overall.

Very good log flume. I love the look of the station and how this one stays very close to the ground during the ride. The layout was pretty long was well and the logs traveled pretty fast. Also, it had a huge drop that was pretty fast and steep and I got only a little wet at the bottom from the splash. However, I did come off fairly wet thanks to the water cannons after the drop.

very fun, very refreshing. I always get nervous on this one, but it is totally worth it.

APPEARANCE: This is a simply beautiful log flume. The ride is at ground level throughout and there are quite a bit of trees surrounding the ride, which conceals the layout. Also, the station looks great too from both the inside and outside. I also really like the water wheel attached to the station, as it really adds to the overall appearance of the ride. Finally, the logs look great too as they have a unique and sleek paint job.

WAIT TIME: 5-10 minutes- Even on buiser days, this never really seems to get a line. Usually I find the wait around 5 minutes, but at times the wait can get up to 10 minutes. This is thanks to the many logs Funtown runs, and while the logs arent continuously moving, the park dispatches the boats pretty quickly.

RIDE: Thunder Falls is a very long log flume. Traveling close to the ground, I encountered many twists and turns throughout the ride. In one section called "Rattlesnake River", theres many turns and even a few rapids which got me wet. The final drop was incredible as it was pretty steep and very tall. I got fairly wet from the splash, but the following water cannons is what really gets me wet.

FINAL VERDICT: Other than Canobies flume, this is the best flume in New England. If youre at Funtown and dont mind getting moderately wet and like flumes, ride this because its one of the best ones out there.

Okay, the thrill is that this is the most dangerous ride in the park. The fun is getting wet, or feeling up your girlfriend at the top, for the camera to catch for many memories. Long winding river gets you a little wet depending on who your friends are and if the guy in tower is sleeping or not. You probably wont get too wet if you dont have any chicken friends on the decking putting quarters in to squirt you, but its fun anyway.

Great flume! The themeing around the ride is great, from the standard pine trees found naturally in the woods of Maine, to hand-painted signs labeling different areas of the track, and yes, Thunder Falls even has its own Chewing Gum Wall! Thats right, just around the second corner of the ride you can usually find thousands of pieces of ABC Gum stuck to the wall. Anyway, the ride is great, the drop is steep, and the water is... well... wet! Definately a must-ride on any trip to funtown. It is also a great place to watch the parks Independence Day Fireworks :-)

Great ride. Good speed throughout most of the ride, nice rapids and some good sharp turns probably the best flume Ive been on as far as keeping excitement up. A nice high drop into a mist. Allowing anyone in your group to sit this out could result in a mass drenching, as coin opperated cannons are set up to drench you.

A very good log flume.
While it only has one drop, it is a high and steep drop. The run up to the drop is at ground level and is fast with nearly hair pin turns especially in one area dubbed "Snake Canyon". You also get wet both from the splash at the bottom and the water cannons operated from the bridge.

The best log flume I have ever been on in my entire life! Great fun especially with the added threat of human controlled water cannons. Great fun, nice and long, and a decent sized drop.One of the best rides at Funtown, second only to Excalibur.
