Dreamland is auctioning a log flume for £25,000 along with a whole host of other unusual items in the hope of raising more than £500,000.
The flume was originally bought from Sofia Land in Bulgaria in 2014 for £145,000.
It's footprint is said to be 79.24m x 29.84m at its widest and longest points, which is probably too big for the garden.
The ride features two drops, a smaller one at 6.10m and a larger 9.60m drop and was originally manufactured in 2001.
You can also purchase the log flume carts to complete your set too.
For those wanting to start their own business, you can buy a pizza van for a starting price of £3,000 or an ice cream van for £1,000.
Other items on the list put together by James Auctioneers, a company owned by Dreamland CEO Eddie Kemsley's husband, and featuring on the BidSpotter website include a London red bus children's ride which already has one bid for £50 and a large dinosaur display figure.
For Disney film fans eight jumbo Dumbo's have been listed on the site starting at £500.
If you ever wanted to own your own children's carousel you can with an auction price starting at £150.
It is believed that none of the items listed for auction were bought using public money and most were bought by Dreamland operators Sands Heritage Limited but have proved to not be of use on the site.
It later agreed a five-year repayment plan with its creditors, with its first contribution not due for 18 months.
