Float the River Runs in a Classic Log Boat

Summer days can be hot, and the coolest way to get around town is on a flume! Jump in a four-person log shaped raft and speed-glide on a river instead of a track!

You’re ready for a cruise down a winding 1,530-foot mountain water course through the trees over Ghost Town, on this family-friendly flume ride. Swoosh onto the watery channel and let the current do all the work. There are over 250,000 gallons of water pumping through this river!

You’ll float past the treetops as you hug the mountain in your all-natural speedboat. As you drift through a logging town, watch out for the log-cutting mountain men, they’re a sneaky bunch. You never know when they’ll send your log over a steep waterfall! As you make your way past their buzzsaw workshop, a giant nosedive is waiting for you! Swoop down over the falls and land with a big splash and a wet conclusion that will take your breath away. Cooled down and revved up, you’re ready to head back into town!
