Log Flume

 

Yep!

 

ANSWER: The Log Flume's exit was originally next to the entranceway. The empty steps to the left as you go up the stairs towards the turntable by the waterwheel were the original exit. It was changed around 1988 because too many guests would come back down the stairs and hop back in the queue cutting everyone waiting in the queue bars. At one point a secutiry guard was stationed there to stop the line cutters.

 

The exit was changed by adding a seperate elevated path (seen in the second photo) which now leads to the Log Flume Photo kiosk and Best of the West patio.
