Okay, I am not sure why this is even an attraction. It's a brick wall with thousands of pieces of gum, ranging from "freshly chewed" to "Who knows?"... To me and my wife, it was something we happened upon by accident and we were very...More

It is gross...but funny too. Narrow alley with gum and other stuff all over the walls. Of course you HAVE to add your own. You can buy gum at a few shops near the alley. A must see!

My daughter thought this was neat, but I didn't care for it. Each to his or her own. You can easily see this when you visit Pike's Place Market.

About 20 years ago, but the city of Seattle is taking it all down soon. I just saw it in the news last week.
