One of the water slides up for auction at Terry Hill Water Park in Lehigh County. The park has been closed since 2014, and the current owner is trying to sell off the slides, decorations and other park equipment.

For those of you who've been dying to construct your very own water park, do I have some good news for you.

There will be an auction of equipment from the shuttered Terry Hill Water Park in Lehigh County on Saturday, June 23. 

Among the items up for sale are water slides (duh), statues (including a giant pirate), playground equipment, a mini golf course, and a much less exciting assortment of kitchen equipment, furniture and other random items from the park.

The 50-year-old park has been closed since 2014, and last year was sold for $875,000 to John Skrip Jr., who owns the nearby Clover Hill Vineyards & Winery.

According to the Morning Call, Skrip Jr. had been open to the possibility of selling the park to someone who wanted to revive it, but during the difficult process of cleaning it out opted for the auction instead. He'll still own the property, but he's looking to get rid of essentially everything on it. 

The auction will take place at 9 a.m. at the park, located at 10000 Hamilton Blvd., Breinigsville.

Here are some photos of some of the items up for sale to the highest bidder, via the online listing for the auction:
