A portion of the proceeds from each ride will benefit CHOA. Macy’s has donated more than $800,000 to the hospital to date, according to the statement.

The history of the Pink Pig spans a half-century. The ride began in 1953 as a monorail along the ceiling of Rich’s department store. Years later, the monorails (another one had been added) were relocated to the downtown store’s roof. The ride later did a brief stint at CHOA’s Egleston Hospital.

But since 2003, Priscilla has been situated at the Lenox Square Mall. Find her on the upper-level parking deck near Macy’s, located at 3393 Peachtree Road NE.

Individual rides costs $3; multi-ride tickets go for two rides for $5.50 and three rides for $7.50.

The ride is closed on Nov. 18, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It will remain open through New Year’s Eve.
