Will log flume be removed.

I hope not. Now if it were removed for a larger log flume, then I'd be all for it. But that is just wishful thinking.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Mammoth of a water coaster to replace the log flume in the future. Especially if they found a way to give it a dual entrance from both wet/dry parks.

 

I'd rather they just build one in the water park and have both. The three I have seen are in water park sections. And there is quite a distance between the log flume and Soak City, not sure how they could have a dual entrance without really long queues.

I have only had on ride on the flume here but it seemed clear to me there is something wrong with it. Not sure what is happening but it was extremely bumpy, like the logs were riding on the bottom and not really floating well.

The flume at SFSTL was built in 1972 and doesn't have this issue and the equipment seems similar.

Has anyone else experienced this?

You could argue it's no longer the Coney Island flume. The ride was closed in 1999 and almost entirely rebuilt by Hopkins (today known as WhiteWater Attractions), sans a few small pieces like the station. Many (myself included) would therefore consider it a new ride.

Hate to see any ride removed. Not sure about the cost of up keep. But everytime I been to KI the last two years it seems to have a decent line. If any ride gets removed I think it might be Congo falls it just seems like it's out of the when peple are looking for things to ride.

Has anyone heard anything on the fate of the log flume I hope it could stay, if not to Coney or over to Strickers Grove hopefully.

Even though in the Cincy area Lesourdsville Americana had the best.

On a side note does anyone have an article or story the wooden coaster that went to KY Kingdom, was originally going to Americana.
