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.
