“Disgustingly fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

You will go to Pike Place while in Seattle, so you need to walk down to the Gum Wall. It's bright, colorful, and something you have to see. Bring your own to add. Then go wash your hands.

“Really Gross, but Absolutely Necessary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Only for those who travel to find oddities, because this one definitely is. The gum wall is colorful and fantastic. Be sure to bring gum along to add to the wall. There are bathrooms in Pike Place if you get too close...

“see no evil”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

It's really amazing to look at, even up close. The thought of so many people leaving their gum on the wall brings a certain feeling of disgust, but the thought is easily tolerable until... you actually smell the wall. It stinks, really bad. The wall reportedly was power washed by the city only 2 weeks ago.

I recommend taking a peek from afar, then do a Monty Python and RUN AWAY!

“You have to see it - then leave”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

It is gross and disgusting and completely unique. If you are at the market any-ways it is down some stairs under the big brass pig. Worth a look just to say you saw it. It will take five minutes tops.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

It stinks, and it's pretty disgusting. But it is certainly unique and entertaining whilst walking around Pike Place. Check it out.
