We're here for both Boo and the Zoo and ZOMBIEzi Bay. In order to ride both of the zoo's roller coasters, we needed to enter through two different entrances.

It's just sad that it took the demise of a flume ride for this ride to be placed here.

I'll end this quick update with a photo of a vehicle from the log flume. Perhaps one will eventually return in the future.
