Chessington World of Adventures is saying goodbye to one of its most iconic rides and giving fans the chance to take a part of it home with them.
The foamy, family Bubbleworks ride will close down at the end of summer after completing more than 15 million circuits.
During its 26 years Professor Burp and his factory helpers have soaked 32 million people who boarded the bobbing bathtubs and travelled through the workshop.
Superfans visiting the park over the summer will get the chance to take a piece of the ride home with them as the magical animated scenes are auctioned off at the beginning of September.
A CWOA spokeswoman could not say what would replace the ride.
She said: “At this stage we can't confirm what, if anything will be replacing Bubbleworks but we will be in touch at a later date to confirm this.”
CWOA is now asking Bubbleworks fans to share their photos so it can create a “mosaic of memories” from people who have been on the ride over the years.
Post your nostalgic Bubbleworks pictures on Twitter, Facebook or using #ByeByeBubbleworks.

Personally I think this is great, it's painful to see the state the ride is in right now so anything is an improvement in my books. I am sad that they never returned it to its former glory that I remember from childhood, but I'm equally excited to see what they do with it!
As long as it's not another Tomb Blaster...
