Every year since 2003, the Macy’s at Lenox Mall in Atlanta, GA has hosted the Priscilla pink pig train ride. This train ride tradition has been around for over 50 years in Atlanta, with most of the proceeds going to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This ride runs for a little over two months during winter. The line for the pink pig train ride is more popular than the line for Santa Claus during Christmas time. I went last year to Macy’s to check out what all the hype was about and to donate to a good cause. Every single time I tried to get on the ride, the line was ridiculously long so I’d wait a while and came back but the line never died down. It was getting close to Christmas time and I wanted to go before the ride closed up until next year. Tickets were only $3 which was super reasonably priced.  No wonder the ride beats out Santa Claus every year. Taking photos with Santa does not come cheap. The pink pig ride was enjoyable because it took you through a life-size story book. I also took photos with Priscilla the Pig who was more than willing to ham it up for the camera. All in all, I had a good time and will go again this year even though I was the only one over 12 years old that didn’t have a child riding this train. Visit the photo gallery for more pictures of this event.

    That is soo cool! I went to another Macy’s in Atlanta this year around that time of month but I didn’t see the pig train :(. Guess it’s only at Lenox Mall.

      Unfortunately, this ride is only available at Lenox Mall. The good news is, the pig train ONLY cost $3 so it’s worth the drive.

    Hmm it may be worth the drive for some people. Unfortunately for me, since I live in Oregon it would be quite the drive for a $3 drive :). But it just MIGHT be worth it lol.
