The Timber Mountain Log Ride.

The Timber Mountain Log Ride opened on July 11, 1969, and remains one of the top attractions at Knott's Berry Farm into the 21st century, having carried more than 150 million guests.the ride's revolutionary "free-float" movement, developed by Bud Hurlbut in 1969. The concept has since been copied at theme and amusement parks worldwide. The free float movement 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 worth of work.Seen in this video will be John Wayne with Mr and Mrs. Knott.
