Southport Pleasureland, known as one of the best theme parks for toddlers in the UK, has been a much-loved destination for family days out for years. Nestled on the border of Lancashire, this popular theme park is easy to access from all over the North of England and Wales, including Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and beyond! It’s the perfect day out for holidaymakers and locals alike. And for visitors to this coastal destination, there’s one ride you simply can’t miss out on – the log flume.
There are countless reasons why you won’t want to miss our legendary log flume, but as a start, here are just three reasons why this classic staple of British theme parks is a key part of any day out at Southport Pleasureland.
Fun for the whole family
First and foremost, Southport Pleasureland is a real family favourite. Every ride in the park is designed with the whole family in mind, making it the best theme park for toddlers and tweens alike. The Pleasureland log flume can be enjoyed by anyone meaning the whole family can join in the thrill of climbing high into the sky before rushing back down into the splash pool.
For those who prefer not to get a total soaking, there is a perfectly placed viewing spot, so you can watch the rest of the family make a big splash – although keeping bone dry may not be a guarantee! But sure enough, there’s a way for everyone to join in the fun of the flume.
Unlimited rides included
As with all of the rides in Southport Pleasureland, the log flume is included in the rider wristband. This means you can ride the flume, and any other ride, as many times as you like during your visit for no additional cost. With that freedom to ride any attraction included in the wristband price, it’s definitely worth trying the log flume at least once to experience the thrill of the drop.
A true classic
Another reason why you won’t want to miss out on the Southport Pleasureland log flume is that this ride is a true classic. Log flumes are a staple of the theme park and for good reason: the water, the anticipation of the climb, the rush of the drop and the splash make these rides a real thrill. At Southport Pleasureland, we’ve taken the classic flume and made it even better! Our log flume has not just one, but two climbs and drops, meaning it has double the fun.
It’s easy to see why people have loved log flumes for years, and still do today. Climbing into the sky lets you see for miles and enjoy a spectacular view of the entire theme park – a perfect way to plan out what other attractions you want to visit, if you can keep your eyes open! But of course, what goes up, must come down. Racing back down these heights and dropping into the water creates a fantastic splash! This dramatic end to the ride is what makes log flumes so unique.
As well as our legendary log flume, the park has a whole range of other fantastic rides to explore. Check out our full list of rides here.
