That has to be the weirdest way I have seen someone refer to fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo.

I haven't been on the Log Ride over the last few months on visits to the park. We finally got on this past weekend only to be disappointed by the new log design. They were filled with water and not draining properly and the new seats made it feel like my knees were just under my chin. My thighs were hugging seat-back in front of me to the point that it was slightly painful. Most logs had seating for 4 but they did have a few logs with only 3 seats allowing for a 'big boy' seat in the back. Does anyone know when and why they were changed?

Apologies for the out of focus pic, it was dark and the the log was in motion.

The boats were modified in April. I don't know the exact reason why, but it probably has to do with people "sliding forward" during the final splashdown and injuring themselves.

They are definitely not as comfortable as the old ones, but at least there are still no seatbelts.

I don't love it, but I guess it's not much different than Dudley Do-Right's, right?

It doesn't matter for me anyway because I'll never ride this ride. Knott's takes it down for refurb whenever they hear that I'm coming to California. It's a conspiracy. :lol:

I don't mind the new seat backs. The key is that there aren't any awkward lap bars.

I’ve been to Knott’s 3 different times since they changed the log ride seats and I still haven’t ridden it, as it consistently has one of the longest lines in the park.

I have been on it twice during the week since the seat remodels and most of the logs were being dispatched with 2 people with an occasional 3 people, so it was taking a lot longer than normal. I am guessing the seat dividers added weight to the logs because they do take on more water during the drops. They were seating 2 people in the middle of the log with no attempts to join 2 parties of 2 together to make a log of 4 people.
I love to roam where the wild things are.
