“Gross but interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I was walking through pike market and saw the sign not thinking anything of it. But when I actually saw it I could not help but laugh. It is literally gum stacked on a wall about 10 feet high. I didn't really get close to it but I was able to snag a picture of it and keep going. It was a surprise for sure and for the price you really cant beat it. ;)

“It's So Disgusting You HAVE To See It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Roadside America Attractions STRIKES AGAIN! The gum wall is gross and disgusting but it's a quick turn when you exit Pike Place Market so you have to do it if you're like my husband and must find those ODD American roadside attractions!

“Not my cup of tea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Added to the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota and the world's largest ball of tin foil, shows that if you build it (or hock it up) they will come. Spend your time elsewhere and toss you used gum in the trash

“Your at pike. It's free. Might as well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

It's pretty gross for some reason but I'm not quite sure why ? It's a great pit stop for young kids. They think its super cool. Like the title reads. Might as well as long you are already down at Pike, but don't make a special trip to go see it.
