Leap is starting to look a bit dated in the days of Storm Force 10. It
puts many to shame though, Alton Towers' for example. The last drop is
find Log Flumes quite boring. This one especially. They are just like
canal boat rides, and the drops are only moderately thrilling. This has
nothing more to offer than the last.
obviously, but I love it. The drop in the dark is fun, the last drop is
really fast and exhilarating.
Since when have canal boats had 50ft drops?!
generally agree, although I think another drop wouldn't have gone a
miss. I think the standard 'quota' of drops is about three, so this can
do with another. The theme is, as you said, unoriginal, but it would
have really enhanced the ride unless to the standard of, say, Ripsaw
Falls in Florida.
log ride can be quite exciting, especially with a full boat of heavy
people. When you get a bit wet even from the first drop. I agree the
theming is poor, though it is quite pleasant crossing the lake. The
final drop is quite exciting though, and makes it a good ride. I queued
an hour for this in August though so beware.
like the way this ride has two drops going down the large one but you
only start to loose your stomach on the second one and by then it is
over. But I still like it
I Like Loggers Leap
because of its double drop. The bit in the dark is great too, though it
will never match up to Tidal Wave
A thoroughly good ride. It
does not have very good theming though. The last drop saves the ride
giving you some 'air' time, without any restraints. The queue worsens
the ride however as it is so boring . It is one big area of going up and
I quite enjoy this flume, the theming
may be sparse and the queue line isn't nice on a hot day but it has some
nice touches and a smashing final drop. There's not to much winding in
and out of trees pointlessly, throughout the duration of the ride there's
usually something to focus on which I like.
I love this no-frills log flume. It
doesn't use any special tricks, but it's just a good fun, family ride. A
popular one though...
The final drop on this ride is great
fun compared to SF 10. The queue is really bad especially when full, but
the ride really makes up for it.
Fun final drop but a bit boring getting
This ride is old, has a hideous cattle
pen for a queue, which is hot sticky and cramped, doesn't really get you
wet, only has 2 drops, and to top it off, was built by RMC, yet...
Yes against all the odds, Loggers Leap
does manage to be enjoyable. Even with all the other points mentioned
above. And this is because good points just about make it justified to
The queue, although cramped, hot, and
sticky, has a good enough atmosphere, and the queue is rarely longer
than 30mins (except in the height of summer, when I would advise you not
to visit-I have tried it once, but now I visit at other times due to
ridiculously long queue times).
The ride itself is fun, the meandering
past lush green grass then along the lake, then the dark tunnel/ drop
(this is very clever as most people think the drop is a lot bigger than
it actually is, but obviously not intended by RMC), then past the little
man made downwards troughs, up onto the lift hill past some nice natural
scenery, onto a very fun AIR-TIME filled double drop, then back to the
For those who say the theming isn't
very good, well you're talking a load of....well actually, I agree
mainly. Very thin theming around the station, and a non-existent theme
along the lake. But at the far end between the tunnel and lift, the
rocks and trees do actually manage to create a Canadian theme, which
else where in Canada Creek is not there. Oh well, it was good while it
So all in all, a quite good family
ride, a good flume, which is let down by theming (or the lack of it),
and the cattle pen queue, but can be enjoyed.
Definitely the best installation from
the joke that was RMC.
I think Loggers Leap is a
great ride especially to get away from the main park swiftly floating
across the lake is quite nice during a busy day! The things I don't like
about Loggers Leap is that the water you get splashed with isn't cleaned
or have any chemicals in it, this makes you smell of fish from the
remainder of the day which isn't pleasant also the queue that's just a
laugh but at least now they have TV screens so you can watch some
advertising while going round and round the queue line! but its still a
I don't find Loggers Leap
to be anything special, but it doesn't really disappoint either. The
drop in the tunnel is OK, and I quite like the meander through the back
of the park. The double drop is a nice change from the straight drops of
other log flumes. The only really major problem with the ride is the
horrible switchback queue line.
