Click to reveal Hint #1

You will note that the clues are presented in alphabetical order, by answer. Most, but not all, of the answers will fit nicely onto the ice blocks provided. The blocks can be assembled to form the log flume track, but keep in mind that most people go around twice.

Click to reveal Hint #2

The log flume forms a continuous path that completely overlaps itself (each letter will be used on two different clues). However, some of the answers have letters that are getting stuck and aren't showing up normally.

Click to reveal Hint #3

If you have assembled your path, you will have noticed that double letters seem to be stuck in one cell. If you can't get an answer, you want to read those letters in a different direction.
