WEST MIFFLIN, PA
An original flume from Kennywood’s bygone Log Jammer ride that was put up for auction earlier this month was sold for $11,100 Friday morning, according to the eBay listing.
The winning bid was placed at 10:32 a.m., 14 minutes before the listing closed. Since the auction opened on Aug. 6, 53 bids were placed on the faux-wood boat, by 23 different bidders.
The auction is benefiting Give Kids the World Village, a nonprofit Florida resort that hosts families with children with life-threatening illnesses. Kennywood is also hosting a special event on Sept. 1, where the park will open early and grant exclusive ride access to anyone who raises at least $100 for Give Kids the World.
