Buzzsaw Falls - Review

Silver Dollar City

Ride Facts and Info

Buzzsaw Falls is a water coaster, featuring boats that travel down a flume and along a steel track. The boats contain five rows of two sets and feature plastic sides above the boat that not only look horrible, but stop a lot of splashing.


Ride Layout

As soon as the boat leaves the station, riders in the back will get soaked as the boat enters the water. The first part of the ride seems to travel freely in the water and is not on a track. The boat travels quite low in the water, and it looks like the water will pour in the sides, but thankfully it doesn't. After a right-hand turn, a tiny drop, and a left-hand turn, the boat climbs up a small conveyor belt. There is a little bit of theming here, which includes a large buzzsaw that travels over the boat, but it is so high up that it doesn't come close to feeling like it's going to saw you in half.

After leaving the conveyor belt lift, the boat is then on a track and the water disappears. This part of the ride is completely hidden from view and features a double-down and a large sweeping turnaround. There is then a large lift hill, leading into a left-hand turn before the big plunging drop into the water. The boat then travels on a little before making a turn back into the station.


Ride Evaluation

I sat in row three on the left hand side and didn't even get a little spray! Some of the people in the front row and back two rows looked quite wet, but most of this came from the start of the ride. Buzzsaw Falls was a little short, and the theming was nothing special. The ride was a little disappointing, and only having three boats running made the line very slow.
