Great, classic water ride that was one of the best out there. The ride looks to be in great shape and the long dark tunnel at the beginning was cool. The final drop was pretty tall and quite zippy and at the bottom I got absolutely soaked.

Boat Chute was much cooler than I had ever imagined. The rustic adventure that is the Boat Chute featured some unexpected characteristics. First off, I knew about the tunnel, but did not know how long it was. I think my mom was right (and Big John alluded to it below) in that the park owner must have had a sick mind when he built it -- this tunnel could not only be used for kissing back when it wasnt appropriate in public, but there could very well be 77 year olds out ther who were concieved in that tunnel. It is that long, and that dark. The mystery surrounding it makes it great: you do no know what is going to happen. It is pitch black back there with only a few cracks in certain places. The boats bang the metal walls and its somewhat spooky. A haunted legend really needs to be started to add to the rides history and aura. Once you do finally "see the light", you get to see the saw mill. The climb up the lift is long, slow and creaky and once at the top you get a moment to ask youself "are we going to die on this thing?" before you plunge down directly into the lake. The splash isnt what gets you wet, its the wooden running boards that you bounce between that soak you with the reflexes of thw waves. Overall, a great pre-drop segment with so much going on with so little, and a good drop which gets you wetter than many shoot-the-chutes rides adds up to a great ride.. up there with the best of the water rides.

One of my favorite water rides and certainly the best tunnel on any ride anywhere. Youd be surprised at how dark and long this thing is. Its almost creepy not knowing what kind of bugs and stuff might be in there, but still fun. The drop is a unique experience with a nice spray of water resulting at the bottom. This probably gets the longest line, so hit this first.

This ride is exceptional, period. It is the very first ride at the park and has not changed, period. It is a must for a first timer to this wonderful park. Do NOT miss the boat chute!

Great classic ride, the history behind it is very fun and interesting. This is actually more like an old tunnel of love with a flume style ending, the ride itself predates the modern log flume ride. I have yet to be on the ride and not here the children behind me scared out of their wits at the long dark tunnel and the creeks and bangs made from within. The drop is decent, not overly steap or tall, but the lack of water on the hill adds to the thrill of it all. The final lake splashdown is great. Often, the ride op will specifically load the ride with the weight in the right places to ensure for maximum wetness.
