Closed for 2018 season. Dominating the Canada Creek section of Thorpe Park, Logger’s Leap is the tallest log flume in the UK. Manufactured by Mack, it is one of the park’s oldest rides, having first opened in 1989.

CLOSED for 2018 Season. A classic log flume attraction, Logger’s Leap is themed around logging in the Canadian countryside. A country and western soundtrack accompanies it, featuring songs from artists such as Dolly Parton. Up to 5 guests can pile into each log (2 in the front, 3 in the back), with smaller groups being asked to share on busy days.

The ride’s circuit begins with a small hill and sharp right-hand-turn, taking it past SAW – The Ride on the left. It then climbs through a tunnel to the top of the smaller first drop, before splashing down into the water below. A flat section around the back of the park follows, before the final, 52-feet-tall drop. There’s still time to get even wetter, with coin-operated water cannons located near the end of the ride so that onlookers can soak unsuspecting riders.
