I am guessing the seat dividers added weight to the logs because they do take on more water during the drops. They were seating 2 people in the middle of the log with no attempts to join 2 parties of 2 together to make a log of 4 people.


That's really disappointing to hear because this ride used to be very high capacity. Even with a long line, the wait rarely exceeded 30 minutes because the logs could fit up to 5 people. If they are only sending out logs with 2 people, it's going to absolutely kill the capacity and make for terrible wait times.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Good, I hate when they do that sh*t on log flumes. I don't mind as much with seat dividers but still, I'm more than okay with this.

No. Nothing is as horrifically terrible as Dudley Do-Right's logs. If you're taller than 5'6" it's damn near impossible to even get seated, let alone actually getting the lap bar from hell into place. There are certain places the human body is not meant to go, and Dudley's logs are one of them.

Ever since I have gone to amusement parks as a teenager with guy friends; I have told the grouper "one person" on a log ride or the Disneyland Matterhorn and always got my own seat. Is there a park that makes you ride with someone else in your lap if you don't want to? Just tell them that your religion prevents you from sitting in another woman's/man's lap if they give you an issue.
I love to roam where the wild things are.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I first visited this park 8 years ago and was underwhelmed. Today was simply fantastic! The park looks so much better than I remember. At night, it comes alive. Ghost Rider was a completely different ride than I remember. What an overhaul! I was almost out of breath when pulling into the station. It is hauling serious ass, but still feels smooth. I had a nice dinner at Mrs Knott’s too. A great start to my vacation.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

We had a great time at Knott's during our trip over a week ago. Ghostrider was wonderful, the crowds weren't too huge, the food was fine, and the Knott's Hotel was woooonderful! Nice times at the bar and in the pool/jacuzzi.

Trip Report to follow, soon. :smile:
