While at DL yesterday I overheard a group of people comparing Splash Mountain to Knott's Log Ride, saying that Log Ride is better because it's more steeper and longer. I love DL but I'm just curious which ride has longer drop

I got my boobies slammed on that stupid knotts ride. After the drop it lurches you forward and slams you into the front part. AWH HECK NO! - CMshelleybee  428.1 #514 4:40PM
haha boobies :) - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 4:49PM
Yeah I said it :) - CMshelleybee  428.1 #514 4:50PM

What bees produce milk?..... BOO-bees - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 10:35PM
lol what the knotts one is DEFINITELY NOT steeper!!! It's so boring and small and not steep compared to splash mountain! - acpowers13  148.8 #2732 4:44PM

Splash Mountain is a half-mile ride with five drops ending in a final, 52-foot, 45-degree, 40-mile-per-hour plunge.

Knotts Log Flume. In it, guests board hollowed-out logs for a journey deep into 75-foot-high Timber Mountain, passing through a working sawmill and animated forest scenes before taking the 38-foot plunge to Timber Mountain Lake below. The ride's revolutionary "free-float" movement -- developed by Knott's in 1969 and since copied at theme and amusement parks worldwide -- enables the 450-pound logs to float freely down the 2,100-foot waterway, recreating the loggers' practice of riding their logs back to camp after a hard-day's work. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:12PM

As a kid I always thought Knott's was steeper, but honestly, it's just a boring log ride.  The ambiance and more drops is what makes Splash Mountain 100x better than Knott's!

The story you are immersed in is what make DL attractions so much better - acesmagic  122.7 #3171 4:59PM
Yes I agree with you DL is #1 for me - Giddie4disney  188.9 #2136 8:14PM
You do realize you're asking this in a Disneyland app right? - CarmenINwonderlanD  265.1 #1207 5:08PM
Yes :-) - Giddie4disney  188.9 #2136 7:10PM
well, knotts doesnt have zip a dee doo da! just some creepy looking miners (when i went last 5 years ago) - DonaldMissingPants  304.1 #883 5:24PM
Splash is bigger it's 5 story's tall , knott's is 1 story. Not to mention splash has zip pity do da. - Purpletink  207.8 #1900 8:25PM
Well thank you. Garsh. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 9:49PM
No matter what anyone says about Knotts, a few of the ideas for attractions and theming were taken from what Bud Halburt did at Knotts...Walt had a lot of respect for the Knott Family and their flume ride was the first

We don't live in Cali anymore so when we started planning vacations down there we use to include Knott's as part of our schedule...the last time we went to Knott's (which has been 6 or 7 years ago) it had changed so much from when I was a kid. The bathrooms were dirty, people were smoking in the park, there were chicken bones in the water fountains, trash on the ground and no real system when you got close to the front of the line.. We haven't returned since. It's always DL for us and there is just nothing like it. We always make the comment that it's a little like stepping back in time where customer service is a top priority..we can forget the real world and just have fun. Nothing comes close to the attractions, food, awesome CM's that DL has. - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 10:37PM
haha boobies :) - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 4:49PM
Yeah I said it :) - CMshelleybee  428.1 #514 4:50PM
It's faster at knott's but that's all it is: a log ride. Splash has a better, steeper final drop, it's smoother, and has a story. :) I'm sure I dont sound biased at all! Also... Fun fact: my sister and I had to sing Splash Mountain music to even make the Knott's ride fun. - OkapiC  139.5 #2894 4:53PM
Splash Mountain nuff said. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 4:57PM

When I ride Splash, I don't feel like I could die at any given moment. Knott's log ride is a no-no. Hahaha. - sarahpie  275.3 #1108 7:13PM
I hate to say this but I feel that way too! Poor Knotts, maybe it could have been better is Cedar Fair didn't take over. Knotts and Disne, I believe, were friends so it makes me sad that Knotts took a turn for the worse :(. - kss4tink  218.0 #1760 9:02PM
all i can really remember about the log ride was the pre-recorded message of a guy yelling "sit down!!!" if you got a little too upitty before the drop. old school. is that ride still there? - littleoysterz  242.3 #1452 7:39PM
The Log Ride is definitely not steeper!! Creepy, yes but steeper? Nahhh. It is the scariest thing ever around Christmas though with all the elves singing and what not πŸ˜– - michelIe  422.1 #525 7:43PM

Agreed. Knotts log ride is a little bit faster. You can view them both on utube. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:19PM
The only things cool about Knotts is boysenberry pie, and a can of soda can get you in dirt cheap... but then again, you get what you pay for. - TheBudd  357.3 #653 8:26PM
