This flume from Kennywood’s defunct Log Jammer ride sold for $11,100 via eBay Friday.

One of Kennywood’s original flumes from its defunct Log Jammer ride sold Friday morning for $11,100 via eBay.

The winning bid was placed at 10:32 a.m., according to the listing.

The auction opened on Aug. 6 and 53 bids were placed by more than 20 bidders.

The West Mifflin amusement park gave the faux wooden boat to “Give Kids the World,” a charity that provides free, weeklong vacations to critically ill kids and their families at its resort in central Florida.

The flume was used before the Log Jammer closed in 2017 and was sold “as-is.”

The ride was demolished to make room for the recently opened Steel Curtain roller coaster.

The winning bidder will have to go to Kennywood to pick up the log. All proceeds benefited the charity.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
