Aquatic attractions experts, WhiteWater Attractions, have created a themed log flume ride at Calaway Park in Calgary.
The park, which has been operating for over thirty years, prides itself on offering affordable, environmentally-conscious family-fun. Timber Falls Log Flume is the venue’s first themed ride and features three high velocity drops and a zig-zag river section.
Manufactured by WhiteWater Attractions with general construction by Canada’s Kostam Design Inc., the new Log Flume has been designed to improve the park’s water consumption by retaining 95% of the water used to operate the ride.
Guests queueing for the ride progress to the Timber Falls Sawmill through three interactive themed buildings. Non-riders can join in the fun from a viewing area where they have access to two explosive water cannons.
Bob Williams, General Manager, Calaway Park, says, “We are excited to bring Timber Falls to our guests. Being our first themed ride, not only does it thrill our guests with high velocity drops, it interacts with them in the entertaining, fast moving queue line.”
He adds, “Timber Falls is a game changer; it aligns with the overall growth plan for the park.”
