Visitor Tips and News About Giant Rocking Chair - Gone
My girlfriend and I visited the giant chair today, it is still there but it seems to have suffered some damage over the last few years as you can see. Unfortunately there was a sign that said "Do not Climb" on it and the store was open so we had to admire it from the ground.[Evan Garner, 02/07/2005]
Reported destroyed in Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The large rocking chair "Roger" mentions in Biloxi Beach, MS is no more. When I asked a hotel keeper about it, she gave me a look like I was off my rocker.
Not to worry though. I later discovered a chair in Hattiesburg that would de-thrown the other with its immense size. I would guess it has to be close to 30-feet high. The dowels are the size of telephone poles and one seat slat was bigger than all 5'7" of me. Ironically, the chair had no real rockers for feet.[Steve / Back On Tack, 11/25/2001]
