The Gum Wall Reviews & Ratings

  • The gum wall is a unique idea planted at the heart of a unique place, the Pike place market. Loved the few minutes spent there. Some very colorful memories to carry along...

  • I don't know that I loved this place, but all of that gum was simply fascinating. And it was kinda cool watching the bees trying to get at the sugar in the gum. It was worth the effort to find the wall (which is really an ally of gum - as high as people can reach with a step stool). Enjoy.

  • An interesting sight to see. It smells fruity and minty in the alley, gum covering the entire wall in most parts. It’s pretty close to Pikes Place so you might as well swing through and check it out.

  • Nice touristy place in Post Alley. Lots of people here sticking their gum in on the wall. At the time of this review, the gum wall was pretty bare. I think they may have removed a lot of the gum, but it's slowly starting to stack up with gum again. I visited during the fall with 60° weather. I don't know if this place stinks up with warmer weather or not. Other than that, it's pretty cool to take a picture here.

  • Floors are sticky, smells like a bunch gum together, extra, juicy fruit, spearmint... Oh and there are bees... The Alley is very busy so you have to time your pictures right.... Oh and try not to wear your new shoes unless you want to walk around the city with sticky shoes. THE EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT, while you are at it make sure you make a stop to the Piers.
