Seeing as the ride is being removed, I better add my review. I did not review it immediately after my trip this past August becuase I did not ride it... this time. I remember riding this sucker during my first visit to the park in 1996 (I believe thats the year, if not 1995). The flume was pretty good, it got you wet, and on those hot, steamy summer days in the Tennessee Valleys, it is recommended remedy to the heat. The ride itself is quite old, and probably not the best, but it still accomplishes its goal of saturation (though not the best, merely substantial). I didnt think it was as much of an eyesore as others, but I do remember the drop scaring the living daylights out of me so long ago, and the images of the plunge still exist in my cerebrum. The ride is worth about a 6 in my mind, not the worst, nor the best.

Unfortunately, Country Fair Falls was demolished in November 2004 after spending 37 years on the property. The ride originated at the New York Worlds Fair in 1964, and was later sold to Goldrush Junction (One of Dollywoods predecessors) in the late 60s.

It will be replaced by new family rides for the 2005 season.

It was a pretty tame log flume. It got you wet it is pretty well maintained not my favorite type of ride but pretty fun if you want to get wet.

It looks like the future of Country Fair Falls is in jeopardy. It may be removed this year to make room for the new and improved rides in the Country Fair area. -Well maintained. Dollywood has showed their true colors in keeping this ride maintained. The ride was O.K but there was no theming behind the ride like there is at all Dollywoods other rides. I think it seems like a ride at a water park or something with no scenery or theming.

This ride was fun, but it kind of painfully thumps you before going down the drop, was like floating on stillts, and was looks really crumy in comparison of the Daredevil Falls. Definetly a step down for Dollywood.:uhoh:

Looks like crap, and is short, but you know wet. I got wet and the entire time I was on it I made fun of it.

Pretty good flume. I give it some credit for being so old, and for being an Arrow, but it still has a pretty good plunge that gets you quite wet.

An average flume ride and not themed well, but I like the clean atmosphere and the drop is bigger and fun for all. Unimaginative layout, but gets you wet and does it better than most.

A rather simplistic and short log flume compared to some of the newer and more extensively themed rides such as Dudley Do-Right at Islands of Adventure and The Wild Thornberries at Paramounts Kings Island, but it still circulates around its county fair aspects and doesnt go too deep into anything, so it really just offers what a normal flume is supposed to do: a couple decent drops and a little washin. Clean and reridable, but I would recommend the more advanced Dolly water soakers up the hill.
