From an adult perspective Aug 20, 2010
By Freddy Flume
I'm going to switch things up here and speak on this toy from a purely adult perspective. I'm 28, I have my own house and pool. I don't have kids. I bought this item for myself.
Often times through the summer I'll have parties or at the very least a few people over at all hours of the day. The pool is constantly utilized, but I wanted a game that people could play when they were in there and I settled on this one. I thought it would be funny to watch any inebriated folks try to stay on an inflated log and smack people around with the batons. It would end up being more entertaining from a 3rd party perspective than as a participant as I will explain in a moment.
When the product arrived I was worried because it's plastered with pictures of little kids. My immediate fear was that it wouldn't support a grown adult frame. I'm 6'2" 210 pounds after all; I'm a far cry from the 40 pound whelp on the cover.
These worries might have directly affected the next little caveat because in my fear that the floats wouldn't support my weight, I might have over-inflated them a tad. And by "a tad" I mean a metric crap-ton.
So we get the bulging floats out into the pool for the first time and everyone is ready to go. I toss them out there, jump in the water and try to mount the log immediately. This is where things got crazy. First, it's REALLY hard to stay on these things, inebriated or not. It's a sub-game in and of itself. It got to the point where I would use my world famous turtle ploy and just focus on covering my face and hunkering down while my opponent wailed on me. It was a formidable defense because in their fury to batter me in what they thought was a moment of weakness, they would over extend and constantly fall off (that's a pro tip to all you would-be log combatants out there). The only problem is if both people go turtle style and you end up sitting on a log staring at each other, but I digress.
The second problem, and really I should have made this the first problem because it's a big one, is it absolutely destroys your balls. Like no joke. The kids aren't alright. I see now why there are children all over the box. Not because it won't support adult weight but because it's really uncomfortable for anyone who's testicles have descended. These logs tried to make my outie into an innie. It's hard to stay on enough as it is, balance wise, but this adds a whole new dimension as it also becomes a groin trauma endurance game.
I collapsed the floats a little, thinking the overinflating was the problem, and it helped a bit, but for the most part it was just something you had to live with. I used these the first time with 3 guys and 2 girls all attempting it. The guys all struggled, but the girls had no problem at all. In the end we made it work and had a good time though. And I've used them multiple times since then.
But it's just ... ya know. Something to think about.

Kids played for hours! Sep 14, 2008
By L. Mindel
I bought two sets for my son's birthday and the 18 (yes 18!) 9 year olds loved it. It takes a bit of practice to balance on it, we found that if you don't blow the logs up all the way it's much easier to balance. I would recomend this toy.

Great Fun! Jun 16, 2014
By B. Kays
I will NEVER be able to write a review as funny as some on this product, I wont even try!
I will tell you that this product survived a pool party with a boys ice hockey team, ages 12-14. They had a blast with this set. The hardest part for them was just figuring out how to balance themselves on the log. After that, checking in a hockey game had nothing on the beatings they gave each other, all in fun of course. No injuries, no penalties. My Husband even said, that thing wont last an hour, but it did. It lasted all day and it is still going strong. My 12 yr old convinced me to play against him. To my surprise, we had a blast. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. My boys also race each other on the logs the length of the pool and back, and have contests on who can just stay on the log the longest, minus the hitting w/the beaters.

Impossible for kids, unhealthy for grandparents... Apr 07, 2015
What a great idea and seems like it would be a blast. Unfortunately while the idea is great, reality is that picture in the ad is impossible to duplicate. Not one of my grandkids (11 and younger) could maintain any type of balance on the log for more than a second and certainly not long enough to even float. Most could not even get on while still standing on the steps and trying to use the joust sticks for balance. I figured I would "show" the kids how to do it. I was able to stay on the log barely but only by using my feet against the bottom of the pool for balance. The kids thought I was super grandpa for being to stay upright. What they didn't know was that my weight caused all the air in the log to shoot to the front and rear and basically I had just a small plastic thong trying to split my private regions into two separate halves (and almost succeeded).
I decided we would ditch the logs and just use the jousts while floating on the noodles. I quickly found out that the jousts probably work great while using the logs (if you could ever get on them) because you can't really swing them much without losing your balance. On the contrary, while using the noodles the kids could swing the jousts pretty well. These things hurt when you get whacked pretty solidly. The plastic seams of the joust acts like a razor blade on the skin and quickly the kids all looked like they had been attacked by a wild cat. After 10 minutes and quite a few tears, I decided that this Log Flume Joust Set was going straight into the garbage can.
Great idea but does not work as advertised. Do not be fooled by the ad's picture.

Great Toy but ...... Dec 18, 2007
It is a great toy for a good price but my only complaint is that it keeps on deflating after using it for a couple of hours. However, the best part about the toy is the "boppers" which my brothers and I use both in and around the pool.
