Logger's Leap

Recommended Posts

Unless you count Thunder River, then Logger's is the oldest. Or Sunken Garden. If you counted Thunder River then by the same token I guess you'd also count Flying Fish (from when it was Space Station Zero).

Its not possible for the boat to fall back down as there are ratchets all the was up the hill which spring back when the boat passes through it so if the lift was to stop it would be completely safe. Thats what the clicking noise is when you travel up the lift. It's the same principal for Rollercoaster lift hills.

On Loggers Leap however the ratchets are not all the way up the lift hill and so there are only a odd few. From 2.15 in
video you can see that not the whole of the lift hill has the ratchets. When on the ride you can see that the ratchets are there but have got stuck inside there casing. However Dragon Falls has them all the way up both lift hills. See 2.07 in this video. How does that make sense?

Loggers leap is down.And just because they are not all out, the anti rollback ratchets are not "stuck".

The Logger's Leap operation and technical teams were working efficiently today. Logger's Leap opened around 11am, and suffering another technical problem later in the afternoon about 3ish, the technical team were quickly at hand to rectify the problem, and have the ride running like clockwork again by 4.30pm.

I love this ride...mainly because it hardly ever has a big queue

It never has a big queue?!On my last visit when Loggers Leap was open. It said the queueing time was 60 mins!!!

The cattle pen has been full up on all of the visits I can remember!

The queue normally depends on the weather conditions, if it is sunny more people will queue for it, where as if it is tipping it down with rain the queue will be basically non-existent.

When it's busy, it's really really busy (cattle pen full), but when it's empty it's really really empty (letting you go round more than once).

yeah I remember last summer over an hour queue! :)last time I went 3 times in a row...but then got a little bored with it

The biggest queue I have seen for loggers was on a hot day and the queue was 20mins thought it was a nice amount of time thought it would of been longer.

So I was having a think earlier,Is it possible to fall out of Loggers Leap on the drop?In some ways I think it's quite possible. Last time I went hands free I lifted out of my seat on the big drop.However, you will only fall out if you are being stupid, for example standing up.Have there ever been any incidents on the ride?Also, is it possible for the log to fall back down the lift chain on the main drop?

The ride's always reminded me of Ripsaw Falls at Islands of adventure, I guess the layout of how you sit is kind of the same. I've often wondered about falling out, but I usually sit at the back so if there was a chance of it happening, what ever's in front of me will protect me. I doubt the log could go back down the hill, that wouldn't be safe to run.I've also often wondered about people getting injured on the ride, I'm sure it's happened at least once

No, it definitely couldn't fall back down the hill. The anti-rollback catches would always prevent this from happening. If there have been any injuries on the lift hill or the drop, it would only be due to the fault of the riders themselves, I.e.: standing up or doing other things they have been told not to such as trailing their hands in the water.

I've personally never heard about any injuries on Logger's , although you can bet that if anyone has been injured on it, it would have been through their own idiocy rather than a ride fault.

I couldn't agree more. The only way that you could possibly get injured is if your boat has loads of heavy people on and you go down the big drop at the end and it gets a bit of air and hits. That hurts your bum but thats the height of it.

Same!, if you actually push yourself up a bit so you are out of your seat but not standing up on the drop you get so much airtime.

If you jump into a roller coaster ride area, you get such a rush of wind as it races by.Please remain seated, or you will end up in the Sun; 'young boy falls out of theme park terror flume ride' and worse, your death will mean Loggers downtime and probably the addition of an uncomfortable restraint system for everyone else, not to mention, you will never see the next roller coaster addition at the park.
