Re: The flume VS Dragon falls VS Loggers leap VS Pirate Falls!

Loggers! :)

I'm pretty sure the airtime I feel on that is more extreme than a log flume should provide! :lol:
Love it though!

Has to be Loggers Leap for the double drop finale - how can you not love the airtime?!?! 

Dragon Falls comes a very close second though with it's amazing theming (although it looked even better before Tussauds ripped away all the rockwork around the lift hill a few years ago).

I do love pirate falls but loggers leap gets it for being the tallest log flume in The Uk I think

I like Loggers Leap and it isn't bad especially if you're at the returning but on tidal trend you'll get saturated so don't bring a cellphone or if u do put it a food bag.

Dragon River - really agree it has some beautiful landscaping, also has these pools under the trough and some sweet Asian building styles. I do like the bit in loggers leap where it goes over the lake but I think all together Dragon Falls/River is or was stunning at some point.

i think loggers leap is the best as it is the tallest in the country with a dobble drop and one in the dark. but trhe others are good but the flume is to long, pirate falls has only one dip and dragons falls you barely get wet.

Pirate falls allthough is themed very well with the little run to the side of the drop with lego men with cannons shooting water and crocs also firing water. Its more of a family based log flume but still has an awesome drop for anyone riding

Can we class the bubbleworks as a merlin flume? Because I'd say the CLASSIC bubbleworks is up there with the best!

It was a close call between Oblivion and The Swarm, but in the end I went for Oblivion. I find the build up and tension great, and the videos in the queue line will forever creep me out! The feeling of being right on the edge, knowing you are just seconds away from a vertical drop, is so intense. Love it!
