The Stanleyville Falls is an exciting log flume ride that cools guests off and adds adventure to the day. Riding in log rafts, the water thrill ride takes riders on a twisting, turning journey before plummeting down a 40-foot summit for a “splashy” ending. The log flume ride was the first in a long line of adventure thrill rides at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Stanleyville Falls is located in Busch Gardens Stanleyville area.

I've ridden this ride for years and enjoyed it, but it is time for an update. The queue is claustrophobic, and the ride, quite frankly, is getting a little bit boring and dated. The folks who are not coaster nuts deserve something better than this. Re-do it, re-theme it, replace it, or something, but it is far past its prime, and it is time for an update. - Tim Hillman

Weak ride as it does not compare to some of the other water rides in other parks! 3/10 - D H

Tame, and almost no attempt at theming. We never got wet on the ride. Drops quite small, overall below the normal standard of rides in Florida. The seats are really well cushioned, so it's the most comfortable flume I've ever ridden! Worth riding only if there's no line. - Martin Rees

Decent log flume. We didn't get too wet, so that was nice and has two decent drops. - Carl Stovall

It was weak in my opinion. It was just dead to me, they put little to no effort into theming and the ride isn't any better. It is a nice way to cool of though. - Formula 40
