Giant snake from Pleasurewood Hills’ much-loved ride could be yours
Fans of the iconic Rattlesnake rollercoaster in Lowestoft, Suffolk can own a piece of history as the giant prop is being auctioned on eBay to raise money for the East Anglian Children's Hospice (EACH).
Childhood memories were left in shatters for East Anglian thrill-seekers when Pleasurewood Hills announced the closure of the popular ride in January.
But fans can take home something to remember it by as the giant snake is currently open for bids on ebay. The snake is advertised as 'Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park Rattlesnake Roller Coaster Prop' and the condition is 'used- wear and tear.'
Bids are open until Saturday February 18.
MORE: Iconic Rattlesnake ride at Pleasurewood Hills to close The ride was closed for refurbishment in 2016, but was unable to reopen as the parts needed are no longer manufactured or available.
The rollercoaster opened in 1986 under the name Ladybird Coaster, but was remodelled and renamed as the Rattlesnake in 1990.
EACH Charity supports families and cares for young people with life-threatening conditions.
