A one mile water log flume ride that takes you on a journey through the backwoods, swamps, and bayous of the old South as you prepare for the final dramatic 52 1/2 feet (more than 5 stories), 47 degree angle & 40+ mph flume drop. With a mountain height of 87 feet this ride includes 15 scenes based on the motion picture, Song of the South and features 103 Audio-Animatronics figures. This ride begins innocently enough. Your journey follows the story of Brer Rabbit as he searches for a new home. But watch out - the scheming Brer Fox and bumbling Brer Bear are chasing him .
Before you know it, you’re
plunging down five stories into a watery finale. As you begin the final
descent, your photo will be taken and you can view your picture and purchase
it as you exit. You WILL get wet on this ride, especially if you're in
the front of the log so to minimize the soaking, ask for a seat in the
back of the log.
