Estate sale lets you own a piece of the Holy Land Experience

- The Holy Land Experience promises to take you to Jerusalem during biblical times without ever leaving Orlando.

People have to come to the park for a Christian-themed experience since it opened in 2001.  Now, you can buy a piece of the park or at least something owned by the park and take it home with you. 

A motorcycle, nativity statutes, mannequins and a gold-and-silver-painted throne are among the scores of items being sold off in a massive estate sale by The Holy Land Experience religious theme park as it deals with a financial crunch.

The estate sale starts Thursday and lasts through Saturday.   The Holy Land Experience is holding the sale amid declining revenue and contributions.   IRS documents show that in 2014, the most recent year filings are available, The Holy Land Experience had anywhere from $1.9 million to $2.5 million in contributions. By contrast, it had $42 million in contributions in 2010.

The theme park had a $1.3 million deficit in 2014.

The Holy Land Experience is part of Trinity Broadcasting Network, whose co-founder, televangelist Jan Crouch, died in May.
