Alton Towers are selling ‘Log Flume’ items for charity, the ride was taken down for SW8!


Alton Towers have announced they’re selling items from the 34 year-old Log Flume for charity.

Alton Towers Resort is set to list a range of Log Flume items on Ebay to help raise funds for charity.

The 34 year-old Log Flume was taken down by the Resort for a brand new exciting wooden coaster, currently named ‘SW8’.

They’ve even revealed you may be able to get your hands on a limited edition flume boat.

People are being given the chance to win some theme park history and piece of nostalgia when the items go on Ebay Monday, September 4th, starting at just 99p. The money raised by the auction will go to Merlin’s Magic Wand, supporting disabled and disadvantaged children worldwide.

The Log Flume at Alton Towers Resort opened in 1981 and was the longest log flume attraction in the world at the time of opening. It was subsequently de-commissioned in 2016 to make way for the Resort’s latest attraction, Secret Weapon 8 (SW8), which is due to open in 2018.

Among the 39 Lots, items listed will include 30 individual flume boats, ride signage and the ride’s former height board.
