Log Ride

14 posts in this topic

Guys. I am going to Dreamworld on the 11th of March and I check the website today which states:

The Log Ride will be closed from the 21/02/2005 and will reopen on the 14/03/2005.
Any gossip, will this be opening earlier??

Hey Macboy, I don't work for Dreamworld so I can't tell you anything about when the ride will reopen from its annual maintenance but I can tell you that there are heaps of other things to do at Dreamworld and the last few times I've been there I didn't even bother going on it. If you have been to Movie World, and been on Wild West Falls, then you would be a bit disappointed with Dreamworld's log ride. Have fun on the 11th anyway.

Rocky Hollow is a farly good ride,yes it's not much compared to WWF falls,but it's worth a try and you will get really wet on this ride.

Yeah I only have time to go to Dreamworld this trip. I have ridden WWF before and it is a better ride. The only reason I ask is cause both my kides (and me!) love a flume ride

I haven't been on Rocky Hollow for ages. I didn't have enough time to go on last time (Because we didn't buy the 2 day pass like previous years) but this year, we will. And I will definatly be going on it.

I was disappointed about the log ride being closed since it is a good fun ride and I wil be there on the 12th of March. At least none of the bigger rides will be closed because if the Claw had just so happened to be closed on the day I go, I wouldn't be very happy as I really want to go on it.

That's why it is imperative that you look at the website to check for closures, as macboy seems to have done. macboy, I couldn't see them opening it that much earlier I'm afraid. Enjoy Thunder River Rapids instead! There's still some other water elements in the park. There's a water jet part in the Nick area (near the Tower of Terror), and the Blue Lagoon (although someone posted a thread or two back that only one slide was running). But no flume ride I'd expect. Enjoy your visit! Post here when you get back...

when I last visited DW over Xmas, we went on the Log ride & I couldn't believe that after an extensive rehab, they had failed to properley clean the tunnel areas.. The scariest part of the ride was the possibility of REAL SPIDERS jumping into the boat!

At Wonderland it was not that uncommon to get snakes and lizards (water dragons) getting into the boat while it was going around. It was pretty funny watching on the monitors people jumping around trying to get away from them. It was a hard choice, jump out and risk drowning or stay in and risk getting bitten. Thankfully no jumped out or got bitten. "The Bus is now leaving for Lizard Creek, Queensland"

That doesn't mean it will help.It wasn't posted on the site that one side of GD would be closed, and it didn't say Reptar would be closed the time I went before that.

HEHEHE that's pretty funny because ToT was closed for probably 20 mins yesterday whilst they looked for a snake loose somewhere in the que... They never did find it :)

Fair enough Scott, but it's still better than arriving at the Booths out front and seeing the closures sign. Nice Pics tailsnosthings, did you have to go past a barrier to get to the ride entry? I like attachment 861 (last pic). I too had a look back down that tunnel. Strange seeing those logs like that!
