Log Flume Ride Up for Auction

An amusement park in Kent is auctioning off its log flume ride.

The flume at Dreamland Margate was built in 2001 and originally lived in Bulgaria but it was sold two years ago for £150,000.

The track, which has two drops (one of 20 feet and another of 32 feet) is being sold separately from the eight different logs which belong on the track.

Each one of the logs is being sold separately and the opening minimum bid is a little bit north of £250.

According to Metro, the theme park revealed at the end of 2015 that it had debts as high as £2.9 million.

An agreement has been arranged so that the park has five years to pay back its creditors.

They are currently trying to raise a sum of £500,000 to go some way to paying off debts, which is presumably why they're selling one of their key attractions.

But the log flume isn't the only Dreamland resident looking for a new home.

Kent Online has reported that the theme park is also selling a pizza van for £3,000 and an ice cream van for £1,000.

If that doesn't tickle your fancy how about eight 'Jumbo Dumbos' from a fairground ride, a 'Routemaster Kiddie Ride' or even a dinosaur display model.
