Loggers Leap

Postby Simba » Wed Oct 05, 2011 4:33 pm

Logger's Leap, opened in 1989, was manufactured by Mack and is located in the Canada Creek area of the park. The ride is themed around logging in the Canadian countryside and, as with others in the Canada Creek area, has a soundtrack of country and western music including 5,6,7,8 by Steps, Cotton-Eyed Joe by Rednex and 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton which plays outside the ride, in the outside queueing area and in the ride station itself. Logger's Leap visitors also hear a range of messages recorded by an enthusiastic announcer including one declaring Logger's Leap to be "the wildest ride in the wilderness", a feature which was added in 2004, however, this was not working during the 2009 season.

Unfortunatly, this wasn't working when I went to Thorpe. It does look very good though with lot of airtime on that double drop.

Yes unfortunately due to Loggers Leap's age it does break down more than other water rides at the park, but having said that it is still doing well considering it was installed and opened in 1987 (Meaning it is 24 years old and in the 2012 season it will be 25 years old)
