Now that I finally rode both of them I now change my mind both of them are about the same.

Most everyone who was even an infrequent guest knows that Logger's Run would get you much wetter than Yankee Clipper would…

^ Very true... That's why on really hot days I would be more likely to wait in the Logger's Run line than the Yankee Clipper Line

It all depends where you sit on the Yankee Clipper. If you sit in the front you don't get really wet. If you sit in the back or the middle then you get wet.

The back especially if the people in front of you ducked, but the middle I don't think the splash was that great.......

From looking at other flumes I think that Great America has the best flumes. Most of the others flumes in the Six Flags chain are really short and has a little drop.
