What is the shoot the chute?

Shoot the chute is an amusement ride. It comprises a flat-bottomed boat that slides down inside a flume into a lagoon or ramp. The word “Shooting the Chutes” means boarding an elevator on a 60-foot skeletal structure and racing a flat-bottomed boat down 300 feet of rollers into a pool. The boat declines down at a speed of 60 miles per hour. An electric cable is used to pull it back to the top. It consists of one single drop and larger boats. A water reservoir of sufficient size is built to catch the splash, thus return the water to the system.

The source of shoot the chute

Shoot the Chutes was that imposing Riverview icon with a fascinating history. Riverview was once the World’s largest amusement park. In 1926, Bobs was the most thrilling and fastest roller coaster ride. Shoot the chute originated as a boat on the side of a hill that a boatman would ride down to a lake and would pull it back towards the ramp after it settled.

Modern design:

It was then improved into a patented Shoot the chute with a sizeable flat-bottomed bottom. In the modern shoot, the line has a guide track that allows the boat to return to the loading platform after completing a closed-circuit route. It has gained enough popularity over time.

The first Shoot the Chute worldwide

J.P. Newburg built it in 1884 at Watchtower Park in Illinois. It was a 500-foot-long greased wooden track on a bluff that looked over the Rock River below. Later, Paul Boyton set this attraction in Chicago at Coney Island in 1895. He later promoted it worldwide and built it in New York, Belgium, and London. He opened chutes on Nov 2, 1895, in San Francisco, and more than 13,000 thrill-seekers took the ride.
