Log flumes (colloquially known as "log rides") are amusement rides consisting of a water flume and artificial hollow logs or boats. Passengers sit in the logs, which are propelled along the flume by the flow of water.
The ride usually culminates with a rapid descent and splashdown into a body of water, which may happen more than once (normally the largest drop being just before the end). It provides people with an entertaining way to get wet and cool off on a hot summer day, with certain seating sections usually being splashed with more water for a more exciting and wet ride.

We have been meaning to buy a guitar for the kids but we haven’t really gotten the time to buy one. We were at the mall last week but since we had to go straight back home after watching a movie, we weren’t able to look into the various guitars that were being sold. The thing is, we also haven’t decided whether we should buy a new one or a pre-owned one. We are also looking online for online retailers of musical instruments and find out how we can save on buy instruments that are pre-owned but are still in good condition. Hopefully we can decide within the next few days so that the kids can have a guitar that they can use during their summer break.
We have another version of a fingerboard skate park. The first one that we created was made from popsicle sticks and barbecue sticks. This time, we used cardboards and a few sheets of old newspapers. By the way, you can view the first one we made here.
The old newspapers were used to seal the edges:
We used white paint and this is how it looks like:
