The typical game room at home might have a dart board or a pool table.  Maybe a pinball machine if they're really fancy.  But on Saturday, there is a chance to create the mother of all game rooms.  The News On 6's Steve Berg reports the Celebration Station amusement park in Tulsa is closing and will auction off everything in the place, but before you buy, you might measure your game room first.

"We're basically going to sell everything that's not attached to the building," said Shawn Bailey of Super Auctions.  "Trashcans, giant balloons, castles.  We're gonna sell it all."

Bailey says you can find classics like a pinball machine.

"They're actually very rare.  There's only one manufacturer in the United States that's making pinball machines anymore," said Bailey.  "So they're extremely hard to find, very valuable, highly collectable."

They say they usually auction off the machines to businesses that are looking to start an arcade or some kind of entertainment venture of their own.  But they also sell to private citizens too.  Basically if your room's big enough, they'll sell it to you.

Or even if you don't have a room big enough.

"We've sold a go-cart track for a guy to put in his house.  He wanted to put it in his backyard," said Bailey.  "We've had people buy carousels for their house, 16, 18 horse carousels, put them in their house, bumper cars."

Charlie Powell noticed the banner as he was driving by, and decided to kick the tires on a few machines.

"Looking for a game for my dad's cabin.  Just checking' them out, you know?" said Powell.

Some of the arcade games might sell for a few hundred dollars.

The price of the roller-coaster simulator could escalate to $100,000 or more.

The auction starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
