Timber Mountain Log Ride

Since its opening in 1969, the Log Ride has always been one of the most elaborate log flume rides in the US, taking guests through an 85-foot-high by 330-foot-long mountain range themed to a nineteenth-century lumber camp.

In 2013, the Log Ride reopened after an extensive revitalization, included the restoration of classic scenes, upgrades to ride figures, and new special effects to thrill guests and preserve this classic attraction for a new generation of fans.

Height Requirement: 46 inches or 36 inches and accompanied by a supervising companion

Rider Safety Information

Min Height Accompanied
Min Height Alone
  • The Timber Mountain Log Ride takes riders on a journey through scenic woods and an authentic lumber mill.  Guests ride in hollowed-out logs down a water flume, which includes drops of 15’ and 38’. 
  • Locate the exit stairs to the south of the attraction entrance.  Please have one member of the party go through the wheelchair access door located under the staircase.  A Guest Service Associate will direct the guest and their escort to a  seat. 
  • Riders should be able to enter and exit the log under their own power, or with the assistance from a companion. The largest step-down or up in a log is 22” in the loading area and up to 30” elsewhere.
  • Guests who fear rapidly moving water, heights, or who are unable to get wet should take this into consideration before riding. 
  • Each rider must be able to remain sitting up straight, keeping their head upright, their back and shoulders against the seatback, and their hands, arms, legs, and feet down and inside the ride at all times. Riders must be able to hold on with one functioning arm and brace with one functioning leg. Riders must have a  minimum of three functioning extremities. Two functioning arms are sufficient, instead of three functioning extremities, if the rider has a normal center of gravity and the lower extremities are sufficiently strong to support weight and maintain proper riding posture under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Guests must be seated behind another guest to keep from sliding forward. Amputations must be at the knee or below. Guests with a cervical collar, a neck brace, or a broken collar bone must not ride. Riders with a full leg cast can participate, providing the leg cast can fit inside of the ride, and the restraint system can be used as designed.  Please review all restrictions listed on the sign at the attraction entrance. 
  •  Service animals cannot accompany guests onto this attraction. 
  • This attraction uses strobe lights.
