“It's disgusting...BUT you have to see it once!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were visiting Seattle and doing the downtown tour when we saw a sign that said gum wall to the right and down the stairs, this stirred my curiosity... OMG, we found it! Down an alley behind the South end of Pikes Market there is a wall that is COVERED in gum, and not just a small amount, tons and tons of gum. You can't even see the actual wall in areas because of all the gum. It is disgusting but a must see... I don't know why, but you must see it

“A Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. As they say "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I would say this is a must see if you are into any kind of art. This is just amazing.

“Near market - great stop with our boys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

It's right at the market. Our boys loved the gross out factor. Didn't really have to go out of our way so it was a fun quick bonus thing to see between market & stairs down to aquarium.

“Yes, it's as disgusting as it sounds, but oh so cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I know it sounds gross, but there are layers and layers of gum from millions of pieces of gum... on multiple walls and window sills. It's hidden right down behind Pike Market. A spectacle marvel.

Also, Ghost Adventures Zak Bagan's gum is right near one of the window sills. They did an investigation down the block at one of the bars a week prior to our trip. I took notice of where he placed his... to the left of the window sill, about 2 feet to the left. His gum was a big purple wad and left my gum there, too. Ok. Now i know i sound like a dork!

“Disgusting but you just have to see it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We had heard about the guy who thought it woul be romantic to propose to his girlfriend in gum on the wall. Don't know if she said yes! It is pretty disgusting but at the same time you have to see it. You can smell the sweetness of the gum and its really colourful but then you start to think about what it actually is! Gross but fascinating.
