 Review of White Water Landing @ Cedar Point
1 Rating Posted by: PhantomNik on 2/21/2008 5:41:00 PM
To me, White Water Landing was an outstanding log flume, and although Maverick is a terrific replacement, it is still sad that this water ride had to depart to make room for it. The line always moved at a great clip, and the queue house had a nice western and rustic look to it (it was nice that they kept this and incorporated it into Mavericks queue). The boats were plenty comfortable, and as you left the station, it just felt like you were headin west along a tranquil river. This flume was a wonderful combination of both thrills and a relaxing lower portion. Where WWL scored big points with me was with its setting, scenery, and long layout. The western buildings, trees, and rocks made the lower portion great, along with the nice tunnel. Then, thanks to the picturesque setting, after climbing the lift to the top portion, riders were treated to a stunning view of Lake Erie as they wound around heading to the climaxing drop. The drop was the icing on the cake, as it was quick and fairly big. You got just wet enough, not drenched, on WWL, which to me is exactly how a flume ride should be. Every ride on it was great fun, and Id always leave with a big smile on my face. All in all, this added up to the best water ride at Cedar Point, and it was a prime example of what an excellent log flume should be. You are gone but not forgotten, White Water Landing, and no matter what water ride or flume eventually re-enters the park, there is no doubt in my mind that it will have some giant shoes to fill. Thanks for a stellar run!

Nice review, and a fine tribute to a ride I was sad to see leave the park. This was my favorite water ride at the Point, and it kinda stinks that now they lack a true log flume ride. And considering the rides I had on Maverick, as of now Im not liking that this had to go to make room for it.
