Relive your childhood days and play on the “Big Red Wagon.”
The childhood express is often referred to as the big red wagon and was commissioned in 1989 by the Jr. League of Spokane. Ken Spiering submitted the wagon as part of a contest. The night before the contest deadline, he had the idea of a child playing with a red wagon. He stayed up all night putting the idea together and ended up winning the contest.
This $30,000 wagon isn't just designed for children, although they were the inspiration. The Big Red Wagon is designed to support the weight of 300 people, ensuring that children and adults alike can play on it and enjoy going down the slide. The wagon is made of steel and concrete, weighing in at 26-tons and standing 12-feet tall.
The Big Red Wagon brings you back to a time when entertainment was focused more on imagination and creating your own fun. This attraction was voted as “Top Roadside Attraction in Washington” by USA Today, and after a long year of construction, it can safely be said that it was well worth the effort.
