El Aserradero ("the sawmill" in Spanish), or simply "the log flume/ride" as it's known to most guests and employees, is one of the oldest and most historically significant rides at Six Flags over Texas. The first log flume ride ever created, El Aserradero has been thrilling guests since its introduction in 1963. The ride proved to be so popular with guests that a second flume was added in 1968, and the flumes have been referred to as "flume 1" and "flume 2" ever since.
Each flume has two conveyor lift hills: an initial smaller lift hill that gives the flumes the elevation to float through a majority of the course, and a second larger lift hill which sets riders up for the finale — the large drop generating a bigger splash.
Six Flags over Texas added theming and animated characters to the flumes in the 1970s, such as lumberjacks sawing logs. Most of the theming has since been removed, with various remnants remaining.
Despite its age, El Aserradero remains to be a popular family-friendly attraction at the park, particularly during the hot Texas summers.
