Simply put, the Log Ride at Knott’s Berry Farm is the stuff of dreams. Many longtime locals consider it to be the perfect amusement park ride. Your opinion may vary, but you and your family will be undeniably thrilled by this exciting and elaborate water journey through a 19th-century lumber camp that ends in a stomach-clenching 42-foot drop. Originally opened in 1969 as one of the country’s first log flume rides, it has remained popular ever since. In 2013, Knott’s made it even better by adding audio-animatronic characters and new scenes throughout the 8-story ride to strengthen the original theme. If you visit Knott’s without riding the classic Log Ride, then you’ve done it wrong.
