Back in the Day RICH'S Pink Pig Flyer was a Sweet Ride.

Back in the day they would say: Please enjoy the your Pink Pig Flyer ride today over the toy department but for everyone's safety Please Do Not drop anything out the windows onto the Christmas shoppers below.

If you have a memory of the Original RICH'S Pink Pig Flyer leave a comment. And be sure to visit

This time of year  The Pink Pig ride is a Christmas Holiday tradition for many. The new version of ride is now on a wheels, on a track  at Macy's at Lenox Square under a big tent in the upper level parking lot.

The Pink Pig was an amusement park ride of sorts that was a miniature suspended monorail sized for children. Adults would be hard-pressed to fit inside the enclosed cars that the children sat in as the ride operated. The original ride "flew" from the ceiling of the toy department. The pig was then moved outside the building to a rooftop Christmas village that surrounded the Great Tree. The Pink Pig started outside under the tree, returned indoors to fly over the toy department before returning to its starting point. The original Pink Pig was named Priscilla. A second pig, named Percival was later added to meet the high demand to ride the pig. After completing their journey, riders received a sticker that said "I rode the Pink Pig".

Here is the new Pink Pig ride.

Event Dates: 11/1/2014 - 1/4/2015
