I remember the one at American Adventure being enourmous, well for a log flume anyhow.
Wasn't that one Nightmare on Niagara or something?

Hello everyone, I'm new and happen to be a log flume geek...I absolutely love the things, can't get enough and I've recently been wondering what the biggest log flume is in the world! Loggers Leap I heard was/is the UK's biggest, but (and whether this falls under a different category I don't know) Hydro at Oakwood Park is supposed to have a 100 foot drop so that would make it the biggest in Europe...? Or so they claim. I would love to know exactly which is the tallest drop though, cause I'd just have to ride it, hehe :--D

Ignore them two, jokerman is as his username suggests, a right proper joker, he has me in creases laughing so many times.

Ollie is only a toddler so you have to forgive his innocence.

The others are correct in that Hydro isn't a log flume, because technically it runs on rails the entire ride. Also the boats don't have single file seating and have restraints. Whether this makes Splash Mountain not a log flume since it's 2 across, I'm not sure.

After a quick Google:
Logger's Leap is about 53 ft high.
Nightmare Niagara was about 63 ft high.
Splash Mountain is 53 ft high.
Dudley Do-Right's is 75 ft high.

So that may be the highest, unless someone can find one that tops it :)

Is that the actual height of the drop or the ride though? Because DDR has lots of theming higher than the top of the drop.
 
highest flume

I know you will probably say this is not a flume as you don't sit in single file and you have a lap bar but it doesn't run on rails the whole time and thats tidal wave at 80ft at thorpe park.

Yeah, it's not a Log Flume.

Plus, the version at Hershey is the tallest of "that sort", then Perilous Plunge/Hydro are taller, and then Pilgrim's Plunge is even higher...

... but none of them are Log Flumes.

Sorry but I'm asking about the "single file" type which is kinda why i said "Yeah, sorry, I did mean traditional Log Flumes" on page 1 :D

I would have said Hydro is a very tall 100ft ride, but it does not fall in the class of "Log Flume".

If you want height, go to Hydro, if you want length, go to America, I heard they have some great "log Rides" there, or westmidlands safari park!

It does have one of those little traveling ones, but regardless, I'm not quite sure what that guy's talking about...

Terra Mitica's is quiet huge isn't it... Or the one that used to be at American Adventure... Nightmare Niagara was it?

Lisebergs has a fairly large drop, then a quick turn, then another large drop. If you added the total descent up it'dd be pretty huge, but thats probably cheating :).
