Local collectors passionate about all things Houston and anyone nostalgic about their childhood glory days at AstroWorld should get their credit cards ready. Select items from the beloved and iconic Bayou City theme park are now available to purchase via a new auction.

Online auction purveyor SITE Auction Services is offering signage, fixtures, collectibles, and more from Six Flags AstroWorld Amusement Park to the general public. The auction is open now and concludes on February 23.

If the recent resurgence of AstroWorld interest thanks to rapper Travis Scott — not to mention the furious purchase of Astrodome items — are any indicator, these pieces are sure to see serious bids. 

Items range from a large AstroWorld park entrance sign currently going for $1,000 to a season pass entrance sign currently listed at $130. A “shark free beaches” sign (current high bid $70) promises safety — until divers hop in the water. Sadly, no seats from scream-and-sometimes-puke-inducing Texas Cyclone appear to be for sale. 

Shoppers looking for reasonably priced items can hit a target from the shooter’s gallery stands for a mere current bid of $8. A sign prohibiting food and drinks on the ride starts at $21, while a “please dispose of trash here” sign (useful in any setting, really) currently starts at $16.

Fans of WaterWorld can dive into items such as a price/entry sign (starting at $90) and a wet zone notice (currently $110) that reads “wet zone you will get wet” — a no-brainer for a bathroom, perhaps?
