Does anyone else find that duck in the enclosed section scary? I think it was on the lift of the dark drop.

I thought it was after the drop!The Duck does come as quite a shock- On Sunny days it even squirts you in the eyes! (Front Seat) ;)

Not the best flume ride I've been on but it's also not the worse. I'm glad they rethemed it to what it's like now though as it does provide more entertainment to what it used to be like. It was weird but when I first went on it in it's old state I thought at the time the ride seemed a bit unkept and outdated to other areas of the park - I got the impression it was forgotten about, so in all glad about the ducks coming to this ride (even if I'm not so happy about ducks on other rides.) However I do miss the dinosaurs.

I hate that duck. No matter how many times I've ridden the Flume and even though I know exactly where it is, it will always scare me. Same for the MEGA loud quacking at the top of the lift hill into the tunnel.

Their not just any duck but Vampiric Rabid Ducks that can fly and eat your brainsJames just pretends to be scared of the ducks - when he actually very much enjoys it ;)

That brings back bad memories for the reaction it gave me when I first went on the Flume back in 2005! It's a wonder I didn't jump out of the boat!

Well surely it would be kind of hard to jump into a boat your already sitting in?

You can't really jump out of a boat unless you weren't sitting in it in the first place - but its still hard to jump out of a boat that is quite high up.

Yea I'm seem to think that aswell , although that may be because, well especcially compared to Loggers, there are alot more turns than on loggers and I think most of which are tighter? , probably has absolutely nothing to do with it but still ;)

If Imperial Leather got a pound for everytime that duck scared someone, they'd be mega rich by now!

I am glad I am not the only one as the duck scared the s**t out of me last time!But I love the ducky all the same! :P:D

So, if the Imperial Leather contract has run out like on Bubbleworks; will the flume be being re-themed in any way or are the Imperial Leather logo's just going to be painted over? :)

Think it'll just be unbranded. They wouldn't get rid of it.. its alright, its tempremental.. but it has a shockingly high throughput which they cant really get rid of.

It's a bit bumpy at the moment s a refurbishment would be nice. It's a classic so it will be very sad to see the Flume go. I do like the current theme as it's witty and quirky but it doesn't fit in with the rest of Mutiny Bay. A retheme and a refurbishment would be appropiate and some new water effects would be nice.
