Psst...Wanna buy a used rollercoaster?

I feel it is my duty to inform you that much of AstroWorld is for sale via auction, with bidding to take place January 6-8 starting at 9 AM Friday at the now-former park's Kirby Drive location. What you might care to do with Greezed Lightning or XLR8, or where you might want to keep them, is none of my business. I may have to check this out for some of the collectibles, though I daresay I'll be priced out of any auction pretty quickly. Click over and see for yourself what's available. Thanks to Houstonist for the catch.

Maybe they'll straighten out one of the rollercoasters and use it to extend the Red Line.

Charles - don't forget about Lights in the Heights - we need a new angle next year - how about AstroWorld in the Heights?
