    Re: rip the log jammer

    I'll miss the Log Jammer, but I'm always a sucker for a flume ride, and LG was a pretty good one that's wasn't short in duration.

    More interestingly is the rumor that a big coaster will replace LG. It seems that MM is going for the coaster/thrill market crown and is slowly abandoning any pretense of appealing to families. I can't say I blame them and I think that's the right direction for MM since competing with DL and Legoland for young families is a lost cause. My greater fear is the collateral damage that could be Knott's continuing its folly of trying to compete with MM in coasters and thrills. Knott's is doomed to lose that battle with the collateral damage being the continuing sacrifice of theme and loss of appeal to young families. This will continue to lead to the decline of Knott's.

      I was at MM today. I spoke with a manager and asked her about log jammer. She indicated it was too expensive to maintain due to the constant upkeep on the pumps on a 40 year old ride.

      She did confirm a roller coaster was going in and would be announced in 2012. She stated it would be a family coaster and that the lakes and waterfalls would remain along with all the landscaping.
      "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

          The pumps aren't so much the problem as the troughs themselves. Over the years the fiberglass starts to break down, requiring a lot of patching. There is only so much of that you can do before the labor starts eating into the budget. That, and the resin used in the big patches has a high VOC content and you run into EPA and DOSH issues with that. Apparently the cost of someone making new troughs is prohibitive , thus the removal of nearly every first generation Arrow flume in the US.

                The Log Jammer was one of the best non-themed long rides in the states. I loved the night rides when the lights were far and few between, allowing you to forget that you are in the middle of a huge amusement park.

                    Maybe he's talking about the Yosemite Sam's Falls (I think that's the name) that was replaced by the nicely themed kids coaster.

                        Aha. Gotcha! I'd forgotten about that one... I hope they have a solid plan for this whole area- I really do.
