The Flume was a Log Flume located at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota, USA. It was manufactured by Barr Engineering.[1]

History

Prior to its opening, a contest was held to name the new ride.[2] The ride opened as Ye Olde Log Flume in 1978, but was renamed to just The Flume in the early 1990s.[3] It was removed in 2008 to accommodate an expansion of the adjacent water park.[4]

Incident

On June 28, 1994, an 11-year-old girl was left in a critical condition after climbing out of a boat and becoming pinned under another one underwater. The girl reportedly became frightened as the boat was about to climb the 45 foot tall lift hill.[5]
