Look at Your Own Risk: Photos of Demolished Kennywood Log Jammer
The American Amusement Park Museum shared the photos of the ride being torn down online.
After making a splash on its final ride in September, the Kennywood Log Jammer is no more. Demolition started on Jan. 24, and The American Amusement Park Museum posted these photos on its Facebook page .Fair warning, these photos may be tough to look at if you’re a longtime Kennywood fan. The Log Jammer was a staple at the park until it closed after 42 years of operation.

When Kennywood announced last August that the Log Jammer would be shutting down, the park’s general manager said they had no final decision as to what would replace the fan-favorite water ride.
The park is reportedly in talks with West Mifflin officials about the replacement ride, which is rumored to be a large wooden roller coaster, according to a KDKA report.
“Plans are progressing,” says Kennywood spokesperson Nick Paradise, though he could not share any details of those plans yet.
No matter how good the new ride may be, many Pittsburghers haven’t gotten over the Log Jammer retirement.
