That could be very unsafe if the log flipped over.

Now, Logger's Run is designed for splash, and as such has less chance of flipping over. Yankee Clipper, however, glides and has more chance of flipping over.

This happened during the '91 incident in California, the boat caught the edge of the flume going into the turn after the drop. It proceeded to turn over trapping the guests underneeth and requring assistance to get out.
