Lake Placid, New York: Big Viking (Gone)
Visitor Tips and News About Big Viking
The olympics were held there twice, thus making the place capitalize on its international theme, all of which is beginning to decay (but in an entirely charming sort of way. I loved it there). One of these international-themed tourist traps is a golf course, with a kangaroo for Australia and a Giant Viking for Scandanavia.[Pamela, 06/01/1998]
I was watching MTV's Road Rules the other day and what I think is a MM was flashed on the screen several times during the last hour long episode. The only thing different about this one is that he was wearing a viking helmet. The place that they were in was Lake Placid, NY. So I am assuming that the MM was there too. Have you heard about this one?[[Matt, 05/17/1998]
Update 8/2/1998 - Claire Marziotti and Kerry Regan, 8/2/98: "Lake Placid 'Muffler Man, the Viking mentioned by Matt, is indeed in Lake Placid, right as you pull into town from the west, as if coming from Saranac Lake. It's part of a mini-golf course."
