One of the most beloved holiday traditions in Atlanta is The Pink Pig, a kiddie roller coaster that's constructed each year atop the Lenox Mall parking garage. It's a great way to appease little ones during a busy day of holiday shopping - plus it's a memory that can be shared across generations (really, it's been riding along since 1953!).
The Pink Pig opened for the first of the 2012 season last weekend. The ride is open daily throughout November and December (see full hours here). It's just $3 for a ride, and a portion of the proceeds benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
