Easily one of the best flumes out there in my opinion and definitely New Yorks finest. Now any New Yorker will tell you that summer days in the city are hot, plain and simple. This however serves the purpose of a log flume in providing wet fun, but goes all out in soaking riders as most log flumes just get riders wet enough to refresh them. This one legitamately soaks you to the bone, especially on that second drop. The drops on this one are really good as well since they are quite steep and the second and bigger one is really thrilling. While short, this is a very fun flume and the best ride currently in the park.

Excellent log flume that was much better than I expected. The first drop was nice and they took my photo (why not the bigger drop?), but the second drop was far better, as it was very steep and pretty tall too. Also, I got very wet on this flume, which was great considering I rode this on a 90+ degree day.

I cant tell you how many times Ive ridden this ride! I go to this park every summer on very hot days, and the line for this ride goes down to the Pirate Ship (and thats a long wait)! There are many good points about this ride. The drops are fairly steep and give you a refreshing drench of cold water. The best part about it is that it has more than one drop. Usually, rides like that at small parks like Adventureland only have one small drop, but not for Adventure Falls. This thing has the manditory one small drop, but it follows that up with a much steeper, much more refreshing drop. But, of course, everything has its downsides. First of all, whats with the themeing? Sure, its supposed to be slightly themed to some sort of pirate thing, but if you look around at the turnaround before the first drop, you will see an elephant, that is not only not faceing you, but has a gaping hole on its rear end! The elephant and the speakers that tell you to keep your hands inside the boat are about the only themeing on the ride besides the columns of wood that are covered in gum. Also (and I mention this every time I ride this), why is there no water at the top of the second drop. There is just some industrial wiring and tires blalantly out in the open for all to see! Another thing is that the boat nearly comes to a screeching (I mean that literally) halt at the top of the drop. The first time I rode this I was afraid that I was going to have to get out and push it through the turnaround! Well, its Long Islands first log flume, and you should definitly ride it if you are at the park!

Its Long Islands first and only log flume. Its pretty good. Im glad that theres 2 drops. But I agree with bigguy. They should take your picture on the bigger drop, not the smaller one. You will get wet, especially sitting in the back. A good log flume for the park.

Cool little log flume, nice when its hot, but when its cold...I went on a chilly 60 degree day in october and rode this twice. It took me three hours to dry off. Really nice, but I do have a few complaints: First, why do they take your photo on the smaller drop? It doesnt make sense and therefore its a waste of money. Also there are no seat belts. Thats crazy. On the big drops I got jolted forward and on the lift hills by back kept hitting the seat behind me. Otherwise a really nice ride and you dont really have a choice...do you? Its Long Islands only amusement park.
