Visitor Tips and News About Giant Coke Bottle
The owner of the Coke Bottle doesn't roll it out much anymore. I think the last time I was down at his house one of the tires was flat. We who live within eyesight of the bottle also enjoy the minature theme park-like playground he's built for his grandkids. It includes an old satellite dish turned into a merry-go-round, a ceiling fan turned into a windmill and a zip line made from something (I don't know exactly what). The merry-go-round looks like an old toy top from years gone by.
And did I mention that you can see all of this for free, even get a picture of yourself with the giant coke bottle. Which is what really gives our little town such a prominent place in American society.[Rick, 04/28/2011]
This Giant Coke Bottle was built in 1949 for the Coca Cola plant in Indianapolis, IN. It was the only one built. It was owned by a private individual who passed away in 1987 and was purchased by a man in Bruceville, IN since that time. He has it on a trailer and rolls it out for special occasions.[Mark Comstock, 05/04/2007]
