I understand that there are a ton of places to sell things online these days but large waterpark slides were not the thing I expected to come across on this website.
I get it. The water park closed in 2018 and now, you’re stuck with a bunch of old water slides that have been sitting around dry for years and you need to get rid of them. Where do you put something you’re trying to sell quickly and cheaply? If you said “Well, Facebook Marketplace but there’s no way…? You’d be wrong.
As the Times Union reported, part of your childhood was just sold for $3000 on Facebook Marketplace.
I have so many questions. Who buys random water slides? They can’t be small, and they can’t be in the best condition but they’re sold. Maybe we’ll see a news article in the coming years about a new water park with revamped slides, maybe someone just has great memories at the park and a lot of land to store them. Either way, I’m curious about the answers.
The seller, Flint Stone, represents the project’s demolition company, Charles Friedman Excavating who wanted to sell them to give to a new home instead of putting them in the junkyard.
In addition to water slides, they also sold lockers ($750) and a game room sign ($150).
