“Over 55 feet tall”

World's Largest Wind Chime. The wind chime stands over 55 feet high and has five metal tubes suspended 49 feet from the ground. The total structure, including the chimes, weighs 16,932.4 pounds. The dream to build the World's Largest Wind Chime was inspired by Jim Bolin's childhood memories of listening to wind chimes at his Grandma Whitling's home. Combined with his knowledge of the pipeline maintenance industry, Jim spent almost two years designing, planning, and fabricating the wind chime. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of several Bolin family members and friends, the wind chime was assembled and officially measured on December 15, 2011.

OMG! So underrated. We got off the interstate to see the world's largest wind chime and we hit the jackpot. My grandkids traveling to St Louis were 8, 10 and almost 12 years old, so this was just going to be a short site seeing stop. We thought we would get a soda and stretch are legs. Well we got off the highway, followed the signs but got near the last turn and turned the wrong way. What a great mistake. We found the world's largest mailbox, the worlds largest bird cage and the worlds largest pencil. I cannot say how much fun we had. Straight down the street the other way was the wind chime and the worlds largest rocking chair. OMG, we also shopped the antique shops, had a soda, visited the corner yarn shop which had the largest knitting and crochet needles. A few blocks away was the largest golf tee and a sign for the largest pitch fork which we did not see. This is a undiscovered gem.

What an adorable town! Thanks to a review by becky2700, my friend & I planned this as our first stop on an epic road trip. We saw the largest wind chime, with the rocking chair across the street. Down the block, we ducked into a shop to see the crotchet & knitting needles, & met Jeanette, who actually knitted the merino wool to get into the Guinness book of records - what a doll. Don't forget to go into the cafe next to the wind chime - they sell chimes, and all the decor on the walls has a specific theme - I'll let you figure it out! Apparently, the "World's Largest" theme in the town is due to one resident who decided to breathe some life into the area - so glad he did!

You can tug on a rope and ring the wind chimes.

Fun little town of big things. Fun place to stop and take a few group photos. Go to the candy shop they are very friendly. It's about a block away from the wind chimes, behind the giant sky mailbox! Great location to get out and walk around for a bit. We didn't find a restroom but most places were closed on a Sunday.

As advertised, it is a large wind chime. The surrounding area is clearly dedicated to these tourist sites, but aside from the novelty, there's not much to them. A nice spot to stop and have lunch or stretch your legs if it's on your route, but not worth more than a five-minute detour.

Fun family stop. This is one of four World's Largest attractions in Casey. It is across the road from the fifth which is under construction (rocking chair). We had lots of fun.

Fun stop and a cute cafe. The world's largest rocking chair is being installed across the street and the golf tee is close by.

It's looks neat but sounds terrible. Worth the stop if you go check out the nearby golf tee as well.

Such a cute town, and the large wind chimes were one of our favorites! My husband rang the wind chimes, and that was neat. Also you should check out the largest rocking chair across from the chimes. Down the road the bird cage, pencil, and mailbox are also good things to see. I like the use of Scripture and uplifting words on/near the large items.
