The listing by Cleveland-based SR Rubber Machinery Parts, labels it as “one of the few Double Loop four-passenger cars that did not get demolished.”

Up for grabs is a section of four seats from the coaster’s purple train, complete with its over-the-shoulder restraints and wheels.

The train was purchased at auction after Geauga Lake closed its gates forever in September 2007.

According to the eBay seller’s listing, the coaster train will be shipping freight from Cleveland to its buyer. Local pickup is also an available option.

The Double Loop, which opened in 1977, was a 90-second ride that reached speeds up to 36 mph through back-to-back inversions.

Last week, park officials closed the only remaining portion of Geauga Lake by shuttering its Wildwater Kingdom water park forever.
