I expected the Gum Wall to be gross, but it was clean and not smelly. I loved adding my gum to this famous wall.

[Queen Becky, 06/18/2019]

The wall is routinely scrubbed so that the gum is always fairly fresh.

They scrapped all the gum off a couple years ago, but don't let that stop you. It is filled back up!! Go to the main sign with the clock. And to the left is an alley way that you go down and the Gum Wall is to the left.

The Gum Wall

It's still there, it still smells of minty bubblegum, people still push their gum onto other wads of gum.

As of 11/10/15 they will be cleaning all the gum off the wall for the first time in 20 years.
