BuzzSaw Falls began construction in the fall of 1998. The ride represented an investment of $7,000,000. It was originally intended to open on May 16, 1999, however the opening was delayed to technical problems. BuzzSaw Falls opened on July 3, 1999.
BuzzSaw Falls would suffer constant downtime. Maintenance crews needed to pump the water, due the ride being not able to run while dry. This would lead to high maintenance demands.
In 2003, BuzzSaw Falls was closed down for a major makeover. For the 2005 season, it was transformed into an S&S Worldwide launch coaster named Powder Keg: A Blast into the Wilderness. However, the chain lift hill and some of the track sections were reused.
Some of the track from BuzzSaw Falls was retained and is used by Powder Keg, including the chain lift hill. In addition, a leftover car from BuzzSaw Falls was kept and now sits on the roof of the queue building for Powder Keg.
Single cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 5 rows, for a total of 10 riders per car.
