THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What are some of the world's largest roadside attractions?
We’ve all seen huge roadside attractions as we meander
down the highway on a road trip. Or maybe we live in the same town as a giant
roadside attraction. Either way, it leads one to wonder what is the biggest? The
answer has never been found as no one has measured closely enough to really be
able to tell. Below are the top three that are the largest. They are all also
the largest of their type of attraction.
The World’s Largest Muskie is located in Hayward,
Wisconsin. The muskie was built in 1978. It is 4.5 stories tall, and 140 feet
long. It is 10 feet wide and weighs a whopping 500 tons. It was designed by
Jerry Vettrus of F.A.S.T. Corporation in Sparta, Wisconsin and was built by Dave
Oswald also of F.A.S.T. Corporation. The muskie is located at the National
Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and it has an observation deck in its mouth.
Keeping with the animal theme there is the World’s
Largest Buffalo located in Jamestown, North Dakota. It was built in 1960 and
stands at 26 feet high. It is 46 feet long and 14 feet wide. This 60 ton animal
cost $11,000 to build and was erected to commemorate the number of bison that
once roamed the prairies of North America. Elmer Paul Petersen, an art
instructor at Jamestown College designed the buffalo and oversaw construction of
the huge animal.
The third roadside attraction is the World’s
Largest Hockey Stick and Puck located at Cowichan Community Centre in Duncan,
British Columbia. This attraction was built in 1985. It is 205 feet long and
weighs 61,000 pounds. It was originally commissioned by the Government of Canada
as part of the Expo ’86 World’s Fair Exposition in Vancouver. Following the Expo
it was donated to the Province of British Columbia who put it in a Canada wide
competition to determine its final location.
