The Giant Adirondack Chair Roadside Attraction

The Giant Adirondack Chair in Sugarcreek is only one of Ohio's fun and quirky roadside attractions.

Remember the World’s Largest Cuckoo Clock that I mentioned a couple weeks ago? Well, if you’re planning to stop by, you should add the Chair of Giants, a 12-foot tall Adirondack Chair to your list of roadside attractions to see in Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Located only a few minutes from the Cuckoo Clock, this giant, red wooden chair was built by local craftsman and is proudly displayed in the parking lot of Troyer Furniture. You’ll find the attraction at 985 W. Main St. And if you’re nervous about having a seat and playing around, don’t be. Troyer’s welcomes visitors and encourages you to have fun and take lots of pictures in the giant chair. They also welcome you to share your photos on their Facebook page.

I know it’s a little hard to imagine how large a 12-foot tall chair is, isn’t it? Maybe this picture will help. I should have taken a picture of the girls’ standing by the chair but it was early morning, we were less than an hour from home after driving through the night from Florida, and my brain was starting to get a little bit fuzzy.

These aren’t little girls, they’re both over 5’8” and they were dwarfed by this giant roadside attraction.

And even though we were tired, they still wanted to spend a few minutes playing and planking the chair, which is apparently the thing to do these days.

Good thing planking is for the young, 'cuz I don't think I could hold that position at my age! Cute pics!

I was thinking of some of your Roadside Attractions posts as my 10-year-old was reading Mission Unstoppable about these genius twins on a roadtrip with their parents as they escape assassins. Quirky tourist spots are a prominent part of the plot. This Adirondack Chair would fit right in.

I've not heard of Mission Unstoppable, but it sounds like something my kids' would have enjoyed when they were younger. Yes, I think the chair would have been perfect!

Haha! Looks like fun! I would totally be up there planking too! Love these roadside attractions and always stop when I see them while road tripping. Never thought to actually look them up though. I wonder if there is a place to find that kind of information?

Sere, there is a wonderful website and an app that you can use. Go to www.roadsideamerica.com. You can search by area and it's very handy!

Yes, I can imagine myself sitting in the chair with my baggies of Amish cheese squares and some beef jerky. Who is going to bring me the apple pie up here?

Well when you make it to Sugarcreek next you can do just that. There are also some smaller chairs nearby for the little ones. :)
