“Yuk”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

A landmark for teenagers but a petri dish for germs for the rest of us; still an instituation of sorts and it has a certain appeal to the young and germ non fearful

“Hmm Pretty disgustug”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stumbled upon this when walking up towards Pike's Market after having dinner. The first thing you notice is the pungent smell of sweet sickly gum, then it starts gum on the footpath, gum on the walls getting more and more dense as you move along. In a word YUCK.

“Interesting but not really an attractive attraction!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Yuk! Icky sticky wall covered in gum just off Pike Place Market. Worth a peak but be prepared not to be amused!

“Strange!!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Not worth a special trip to go see, but if you go to Pike Place Market, go visit! The wall is on an adjacent alley to the south-east of the Market. Thousands of pieces of gum line this wall, some so high up you wonder how they got up there. The array of colors is astonishing. Smells kind of funky...just don't get too close. The wall seems to go on and on and on...

“Totally cool & unique”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Right next to Pikes Place Fish Market it's a no brainer to get a quick photo here. I thought it was cool, albeit gross.
