Does anyone know what park this log flume is from? It only states that it is in the u.s.a.

Here is the link.

Boy, that link has developed a ton of interest recently. :)
I don't reconize the park.

The selling price is in USD but nothing on that page says the flume is from the US. Those homes and city behind it look European, probably British.

Whoa, a video clip of a log flume? I'm too lazy to open it, but for anyone that did: does it have POV footage? ;)

Steve, who just made his 1,000th post to CoasterBuzz and has other, more important things to be doing right now. :)

No POV, just 6 views of the log going down the splash. Nothing too exciting.

Can it be shipped to the states--say to the East coast? We here at Six Flags America need a fully working log flume.

Moosh and FlyingScooter, the park in the photo is Frontierland, Morecambe, UK. A neat little park that is sadly no longer in existence. I rode my first Schwarzkopf (Jet Star II) at the park around about 1980 and the Texas Tornado (then known as The Cyclone IIRC) was a fun little mid sized out and back woodie :) I'm sure the mine ride was a traditional wild mouse ride at the time too.

More info on Frontierland here...

^thanks Invy,

BigJim: yeah, it would be cool to build one in the yard. It'd be sort-of a elevated slip-n-slide. lol. Just exit the bathroom window and whoooosh! fun for the whole family.

Thanks, Jim. Unfortunately Geocities sucks...there is a pop-up ad covering the navigation menu that won't close when you click the "X". Oh well....

Same thing happened to me.
I'm going to have to check some info out. I wonder why a UK park would a ride called Texas Tornado.

Several UK parks have Western themed areas, and they are quite good.

Everybody loves America.

Yeh, I thought that reminded me of Frontierland when I first glanced at the photo. The wooden Wild Mouse was right beside the flume too, which thankfully was moved to Southport.

Moosh/Scooter - are you viewing the site in Internet Explorer? If so, try another browser like Firefox - it should work that way :)
