Six Flags over Texas brought down the Chute Out today. I think it was kind of sad they didn't attempt to relocate or sell this classic ride.

fans the chance to bid on unique Texas Chute Out ride memorabilia for a
good cause. A red parachute is available in its entirety and pieces
making up a blue parachute are also available on the charity's eBay page
100% of the purchase price of the items benefits Give Kids The World
Village, a 70-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides
weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations to children with life-threatening
illnesses and their families.
I've participated in their Coasting For Kids fundraising event the last two years, and raised over $2K for them. They deserve our support for the great work they do.

Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist...
But I am happy to see them helping Give Kids the World. Make a Wish uses their complex for kids and their families visiting Orlando to stay at. Very neat facilities and a great work that they do.
