queue for this one was an interesting experience. Over the tannoy we
heard what sounded like a village idiot singing various nursery
rhymes. Turns out it wasn't a tape, but one of the ride operators
who got bored. I did offer the services of my MP3 player to provide
some decent music, but that offer was declined.
Now I hesitate to call a flume
ride that isn't that compact double drop version that's absolutely
everywhere generic, but this is a generic one drop layout version.
Instead of a small drop followed by a big drop it's a short ride
around a scenic area followed by the big drop.
The scenic section does feel like a work of accidental genius. It
sees you going through an overgrown woodland like area. It's
probably in such an overgrown state due to the lack of
maintenance. This though creates a nice woodland setting, that's a
lot more effective than a lot of things they could have intended to
drop is a pretty good one. It doesn't do anything unexpected but it
provides a good level of family thrills. The fact you get a
satisfactory ride with just one drop shows how the small drop on the
double drop flumes doesn't add that much to the ride. Although not a
must do ride it still provides a fun experience worth a go when
visiting the park.
