Six Flags to auction part of Monster Plantation

One of Boy Scout monsters to go up for bid on eBay on Thursday

The Cobb County amusement park is redesigning Monster Plantation, one of the park's oldest attractions, and will be auctioning off one of the ride's original monsters.

Proceeds from the eBay auction, which begins at 9 a.m. Thursday, will be donated to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

The monster being sold is named "Scout" and is one of the Boy Scouts in the ride's "Little Monster Club."

For the past 27 years, Monster Plantation has been located in the 25,000-square-foot building that originally housed the park's Tales of the Okefenokee ride. It will reopen next May as Monster Mansion.

To bid on Scout, go to www.ebay.com and search for item number 180311122962. Bidding starts at $100.
