Log Jammer Closing…Here’s What You Can Do!

Earlier today, Kennywood announced that the Log Jammer would be closing at the end of this season. We would like all of our followers to be aware of an effort to save the historic, one-of-a-kind attraction.

It is with great disappointment that we pass along the news that the Log Jammer’s 42-year run at Kennywood will come to an end this year. This Saturday and Sunday (September 16-17) will be the last chance guests have to ride it and bid it a fond farewell.

However, a Facebook page has been created by several members of the enthusiast community. If you do not wish to see the Log Jammer removed, visit the page, and take their suggested action: contact Kennywood as well as Palace Entertainment and share your thoughts. As the page recommends, we request that any messages you do send are constructive and polite. In addition, if you are a Facebook user, please like this page and share it to spread awareness of this effort, and message the page directly if you would like more information on what you can do.

Also, make sure to visit our discussion topics about the Log Jammer on our own forums, where you can share your memories of this classic attraction as well as speculate about what will take its place in the future.
