There is a long line at the flume ride where the last people on line have to wait about a half of an hour to get up to the top where the start of the ride is. This is the same principle regarding roller coasters except for the altitude to start riding at. The flume combined water sports with roller coasters. However, with flumes, the apex of the ride precedes its end while the apex of a roller coaster ride occurs well within the duration of the ride. Flumes use all-natural propulsion while the roller coasters run mechanically and naturally.
