Whimsy Log Flume Ride

II: Failed Enterprise

Whimsy doesn't lack for molten lava!

The lava that flows down Pele's south face is spectacular.

especially at night!

Unfortunately, when the Whimsy Transportation Authority decided to make a carnival-type log flume ride, they chose the lava flow instead of the mountain stream scant yards away.

Today the only remnants are the sign...

...and what's left of the wooden boats (which instantly burned up)...

... and the stone boats (which sank).

To reach the log flume ride from the Whimsy entry area, walk down the rope bridges, cross the gradens, hike up the stairs, and cross the rope bridge.
