“Like watching paint dry”

Stop by this private residence (call for appointment) to check out the world's largest ball of paint. The ball started out the size of a baseball, but turned into the behemoth it is today. It is certifiably recognized by guiness, and travelers can see a portion that has been carved out, exposing layers upon layers, and years upon years of paint. So stop by, and watch paint dry in the best way possible.

I'm so glad we stopped! It's so much bigger than this picture already! Bring $20 with you to get an awesome t-shirt that says you painted. Sign the wall, get a certificate, best roadside stop of this trip by far.

One of the more fun stops I made along my recent cross-country trek, and a great conversation piece. It's in the middle of nowhere but worth the drive; the size of it has to be seen to be believed. The family that started it has kept track of every single person that has applied a layer to the ball including the date and color, by having you sign into the guestbook. You're offered a variety of colors to choose from, with the only stipulation being that you have to paint a different one from the last. I chose teal, which upon a quick check by the wife hadn't been used in over a 100 layers. Calling ahead was easy and they were very accommodating with the time; I arrived there around 7pm and there was another pair of people coming about an hour after me. Thanks to the internet they get visitors from all over the world.

As the description says, call ahead for an appointment to see the ball. The couple who owns the ball are friendly and very accommodating. The price of admission to see the ball is that you have to put a coat of paint on the ball, so wear old clothes. This was a fun stop.

Make sure to call ahead, with plenty of time. I was hoping to see this about an hour ahead of when we would be driving by, but they unfortunately had no availability. Call a day ahead, at least.
