This vintage film from 1903 features a water ride that used to exist at Luna Park called "Shoot-the-Chutes."

The camera was positioned to view the shoot-the-chutes concession from the best location. A special added attraction for the entertainment of the spectators is a man in a swimming suit who rides down the shoot-the-chutes on one ski.

The amazing vintage film was digitized and uploaded to YouTube by the Library of Congress.
