Log flume rides are staple for any amusement park, but before they became thrilling fun rides, log flumes were used in the lumber industry to transport logs.

Since the early days of logging in America, which stretches back to the 1600s when the first settlers arrived in Jamestown, loggers primarily worked near water and only moved further away when wood supplies on that land was depleted. The water made it easy to move timbers from forest to mills and overseas. All you needed to do was tie the logs together in rafts and push them into the stream. But as loggers were forced more inland, they were needed to come up with new ways of transporting their products. The log flume was the result of this necessity.
