Evolution of the Log Flume

Pleasurewood Hills recently announced that their popular log flume attraction is set for a major refurbishment this season. So, we thought it might be a good time to take a look back at the history of this family favourite.

The "Wild Water Falls" opened at the park for the first time back in 1992. With a very simple blue and white colour scheme, the ride was not especially striking to look at, but with two decent drops, riders were almost guaranteed a soaking.

In 2005, new park owners decided to add a splash of colour to the ride. With the bright new colour scheme came a new name too, "Mellow Yellow".

In 2009, the ride received further investment. A new name, "Timber Falls" brought with it a new colour scheme, an upgraded queue line and sound effects.

So, what next?

Well, so far we know that the new name for the updated attraction will be "Water Fun Factory". We are expecting to see a new station building and some other fun theming features too.

Check back to Pleasurewood Place soon for more info.
