One of the first major rides to be constructed at Alton Towers, the Log Flume was built over the winter of 1980/1981. Its 886m course winds its way through the woodland neighbouring the gardens, and was quite a major undertaking for the park, with it being the longest Log Flume in the world at the time.

After 22 years in operation the flume received a major face lift, turning it into The Flume: Unplugged. Photos taken during the ride’s retheme are available to view here.
