After 40 years of operation it was announced the Blackpool Pleasure Beach Log Flume would be taking its final passengers on the 3rd September 2006. The Flume built by Arrow dynamics was the first of its kind in the UK. Here I take a look at its final day of operation and the demolition that followed.
Final Day of operation.
As a member of Club Pleasure beach, it was arranged that we would have the log flume for exclusive ride time from 4pm-4:30 on its final day of operation.
