Visitor Tips and News About Pink Elephant
We went to visit the Pink Elephant on 3/6/10. He is still standing, but badly covered with graffiti and stickers. The Citgo station he is next to appears to be shut down and the land is for sale.[Jana, 03/16/2010]
I saw the Pink Elephant, but instead of shades, he had glasses without the lenses. It was right next to the Citgo station. He was awesome!
I bought key chain for $1.99 and a magnet for $1.19![Karen F, 08/23/2008]
He is still there. We stumbled upon him on Memorial Day Weekend. Unfortunately it is in need of a good paint job. The gas station attendant didn't seem to care about it at all, and seemed rather annoyed by people's interest.[Merlin, 06/15/2008]
I am glad to see others in as much love with this elephant as I am. I grew up in Dane county but traveled north at least once a month my entire life. Seeing the elephant meant an exciting weekend ahead, or that we were almost home. When I got married this summer, we had our reception at the new hotel right by the elephant, and I knew we had to stop for pictures. I don't know if anyone else has done it, but this is our favorite picture from the wedding.[Jodie Lasco, 11/03/2007]
The Pink Elephant is still there. Shamefully, there is much graffiti on the Elephant now, on its glasses, on its backside... drawings of things that may not be the best for kids to see and lots of foul language written on it. There were still a lot of people there to take pics with it. It's visible off the roadway.[Lynn Van Hoose, 06/01/2007]
