Gemini Giant

US Route 66, 810 E. Baltimore St.
Wilmington, IL 60481
The Gemini Giant is a picture-worthy landmark statue on U.S. Route 66 at the Eastern entrance to Wilmington, Will County, Illinois. Standing outside the old Launching Pad Drive-In restaurant, the 30 foot tall statue is one of many giant Muffler Man advertising props found throughout the USA in the Sixties. The Gemini Giant is named after the Gemini space program and holds a silver rocket ship in his hands, while sporting an astronaut's space helmet that looks more like a welding mask.
