King of Prussia, Pennsylvania: Giant Vacuum (Gone)

A large vacuum outside a vacuum store tempted passers-by to pose their friends and family as if being sucked into its ravenous maw.

Steve's Sewing and Vacuums

Outside Steve's Sewing and Vacuums. I-76 exit 328B. Drive east on W. DeKalb Pike/US Hwy 202 for one mile, pass under the PA Tpke, then about another half-mile to the vacuum on the leftt, before Town Center Rd.

Unfortunately, the vacuum has been removed from this location. The business who owned it, Steve's Sewing, has moved up the street, so it may be located there.

To get a great picture, lift your fingers up to make it really look like you are clawing. Also, there is space, so stick your legs partway under to look like you are already part-way sucked in.

Our GPS was about a half mile off for this location, but it was spotted on the edge of a strip mall. There is no parking right in front of the vacuum, but a large parking lot is close by. This was a good laugh for my young children.

Nice use of your Extras! The street address number is for the business, and may not resolve to the exact location if typed into a GPS device; the map pushpin is correct.

There is a statue of a giant vacuum outside of Steve's Sewing and Vacuums in King of Prussia. We drove by and had to stop. Honestly, this picture sets itself up. Doesn't everyone want to suck up their child at some point? This is the classic "Life Sucks" photo op. There's plenty of space around it so you don't have to get the store signs in your photo. It's outside so you can park in the lot and not block anyone while snapping pics.

Extra credit for the extra effort needed to create a big canister vac, not a standard upright (we've seen big versions of those before).
