This place gets 5 stars because I visited it at night. And oh my god, so creepy it was awesome. I was scared to get out of my car to take pictures but I did. Awkwardly smelled good too.
Good photo opp but not much else, town seemed like it was mostly empty when I stopped by and there wasn't anything across the street except for an empty lot and an old looking sign advertising souvenirs for .25 but i did not see a shop or any visitor information.
Been there two summers ago. Town is small and local gas station attendednt came up the block to tell us about the ball, sign the visitor list, and take our picture. Fun experience for us and the kids.
A great stop across this part of the country. But, the town is a little empty.
You know you are going to see this and nothing else which is why I gave it 4 and not 3 stars. I wasn't expecting anything else. The gift shop across the way was definitely closed and looked a bit run down. There was a playground across the street that the kids enjoyed more than the ball of twine and gave us a chance to let them run around.
Stopped by today and amazed to see another family traveling visiting the ball as well. They were waiting for the gal to show up with more twine to add to the ball. She was super sweet and let all five of us take a trip around the ball with new twine as well. The gift shop across the street was open although looks like it isn't. Lots of neat souvenirs in there as well.
I mean, why not visit?! It was really strange to see a wad of twine. It does stink to high heaven and I wasn't about to hug it like others were doing. All I could think about was flesh eating bacteria. But hey, that's just me.
Perfect little free stop on the way to Little Lady Liberty and the Center of the USA monument. There is gas next door, but not much else.
Be sure to stop by the gift shop. You'll get a piece of twine to add to the ball!
Just what we expected- a giant ball of twine! My son read about this in The Genius Files book, so we had to stop. Fun photo op. Would have given 5 stars if town had been a bit more lively...on a Sunday nothing was open.
Pretty neat little stop, but beware the bugs!
