Thunder Creek Mountain Log Flume Ride at Dorney Park

Thunder Creek Mountain

Try and Move This Mountain.

On a hot Pennsylvania day, there is no better way to cool off than by sliding down a massive hill side into the cool creek below. Nestled into Dorney Park’s natural hillside, this relaxing yet exciting log boat cruise navigates a creek through the park’s beautifully shaded landscape. Sit back and take in the exciting views and sounds of Hydra: The Revenge whizzing past, guests screaming atop the Dominator, and the rush of Steel Force before plunging down 210 feet into a refreshing splash.  When this historic log flume opened in 1982, it held the record for the longest, in-ground log flume ride in the country. Since then, the record may have been passed, but this ride is still bringing a refreshing moment of coolness to a hot summer’s day. This attraction is surely a family favorite that everyone can enjoy. Take a seat in this crafted log flume ride and get ready to be splashed on Thunder Canyon!

Guests must be 46" tall to ride alone OR 36" tall and accompanied by a supervising companion.
