The Radio Flyer wagon was massive! And just so ya know, it is closed early, because it's located at the factory where they make the Radio Flyers. So we showed up at 8 pm and the gates were locked, and you have to be buzzed in to get anywhere near the wagon. So after buzzing and no one answering, we got in the car defeated, started it up, ready to go home. Just then the gates opened and a very friendly worker let us in. Just because we wanted pictures with the wagon!
It's totally worth it, slide or no slide. 27 feet long, 13 feet wide, with wheels 8 feet in diameter. It was inspired by the 45 foot tall "Coaster Boy" model, the Radio Flyer hit of the 1933 World's Fair.

This is a big Radio Flyer Wagon. It was put into place in July of 2005 -- I was driving to work and I looked over and there it was. [Susan Kalupski, 03/25/2006]
