I enjoy the look of the new ones. The front rest seems to be substantially larger than Shenandoah's, which don't even go above the opening. I enjoy that they are more open, look a lot more like actual logs, and that they kept the "Busch Gardens," on the front with the same font style as the original, which I was honestly not expecting.

I hope they ride as good as they look, and DO NOT have seat belts or any other restraint. All in all, I'm very happy to see Le Scoot being treated like the royalty that it is.

Finally! The Log Flume has Logs! The new logs seem really open which will definitely add a bit more splash to the ride. Cool

Hello, I am new here and I skimmed through this topic. Someone asked what happened with the old Busch Gardens Van Nuys log flume and I have the answer to that: it became the Desperado Plunge at Great Escape when Charlie Wood (founder of that park) purchased it when the park closed. He moved the various troughs, boats, drop and mechanical parts and had a whole new layout constructed for it, using cement channels on the ground to go from the drop to the first lift. It used to have an incredible rapids section on the ground until Six Flags first added the Nightmare indoor coaster and then further cut the concrete portion when they installed the Canyon Blaster mine train. What used to be a fun section is now a straight shot from station to a turn into the first lift.

For the upward ramp, as of 2007, only two Arrow flumes still had the segment: the Log Jammer at Kennywood and the log flume at Fuji-Q Highlands in Japan. The log flume was removed that year at Fuji-Q, leaving only the Kennywood one operating.

Any ideas who built the Scoot new boats?

So it seems a large amount of work is still going on around the top part of Le Scoot. It's completely covered in scaffolding all the way around.

Sorry I couldn't get a closer picture, there was an employee standing in front of the entrance and I was thinking of Zachary's earlier Mach Tower incident where he couldn't take pictures of non-operational rides. Tongue Although, the employee there did smile at me as I walked over with my camera, but I didn't feel like breaking her trust by further intruding.

Are you sure this isn't just some lumberjack-themed Killarney Kommotion 2.0?

Are you telling me that the pole dancer's costumes in KK weren't lumber jack themed?

Also scaffolding has been taken down and lift rollers have been added, which BGWFans got a picture of today:

It looks like LeScoot is getting ready. Water testing Friday evening.
   

It was quiet and dry Saturday and Sunday.

I am happy they are testing. Did they pull that water from the river. Usually it is pretty clear. That water is far from clear.

Water for the ride is pumped in from a line. But for testing, especially when it's likely the ride will be drained again before opening, it makes sense that they would use the River water instead of wasting clean and treated water.

While riding on the train I noticed the new logs are currently sitting underneath the turn to the sawmill.
