Log Flume is a log flume located at Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, New York, USA.


In 1984, Seabreeze constructed an all new log flume from the ground up to replace it's former Over The Falls log flume ride. The new ride features an entirely different trough layout, major improvements to filtration including an entirely separate filtration pond that utilizes municipal water instead of water from the retention lagoon, and new fiberglass log boat vehicles. The lagoon, however, remains in the center of the log flume for scenery.[1][2][3]


The Seabreeze Log Flume contains a 1,200 foot[1] concrete trough that carries riders in fiberglass boat vehicles shaped like logs through various twists and turns, followed by two tunnels and white water rapids. Riders then exit the tunnels and are given a view of the large lift hill, situated farther below ground level at the base of the filtration and water supply pond to provide a greater sense of thrill. The filtration pond features a large pipe that is made to appear broken, that constantly flows as it splashes from high pressure as part of the filtration system The log creaks its way up the belt driven wooden lift hill. Once at the top of the lift hill, as the ride vehicle crests the top it engages with two parallel ride tracks to secure the log to the drop for safety. This engagement occurs with a large thud felt by riders and provides a great deal of thrill before the final plummet. The log boat then descends the 55 degree angled plunge into a large splashdown pool, and then exits the pool turning back into the station. At the time the ride opened, it contained the steepest log flume drop in the world, and is still considered one of the steepest in the country today.[1][2][3]
