Timber Mountain Log Ride

Yesterday I was on the newly refurbished Timber Mountain Log Ride at Knott’s Berry Farm. If you don’t want any spoilers, then go away now! They added new animatronics and sets. The new figures were built by the masters at Garner Holt Productions. They are now the folks behind the animatronics at Disney and many other companies. I was the first person on it yesterday, and had my own log and I’ll never forget it! All I said the whole ride was “oh my god.” The ride was incredible. There isn’t a deep story, but has interconnecting events. Cedar Fair spent $5 million dollars for this mega refurbishment and is well spent.

This is part of the first scene.

This scene is at the bottom of the first drop. You can see how the caverns in Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland inspired it.

This man’s hose sprays water and stops right before you would get wet.

Did I like it?
YES!!!! This is THE ride of the summer! Congratulations to Knott’s for caring about this legendary ride and to Garner Holt Productions for their fantastic work! This is Knott’s summer to shine. I personally think the refurbished log ride is a better addition than the Boardwalk Expansion. Thanks to MiceChat for letting me use their pictures. I’ll be taking two weeks off and will return on June 22. You like us on Facebook and email us at kolbykonnection@gmail.com.

Do you think the Calico Mine Ride should be refurbished in the same style as the Log Ride?
