Trust me, the flume was absolutely appalling.
There's no such thing as an appalling log flume.
The log flume was really good. It needed a face-lift, but it was long, had fun themeing, went through lots of woods, and is my favorite log flume I have been on.
When they rethemed it to "Bathtime with Attitude", I thought the showerhead looked cool. Don't know if it worked or was just for show... Would be a good addition for many Log Flumes now that I think about it. The rubber ducky also looked adorable.
Apparently I see flumes through rose colored glasses because on our last trip to Magic Mountain the only rides in the entire park that we bothered re-riding were Ninja (what a criminally underrated coaster), Tatsu and Jet Stream since we were so pressed for time.
Ninja and Tatsu are worthy. I enjoyed a lot of those immensely. Could be that you went pre-drought too, because when I was there for WCB, there was about an inch of water in the trough, the boat ran on its wheels the whole time without floating at all, and it just went back and forth hitting each side as hard as possible. I came off it with a headache from the amount and force of the crashing. You do need to have water in your log flume for it to function correctly.
