Never has painting a 6,050 pound baseball been so exhilerating! Step right up, folks, grab a long-handled paint roller and, under the benign guidance of Mike and Glenda add a layer of paint (I chose peach, bein' from Georgia!) to this HUGE project! You'll be...More

Oh how fun. We made an appointment to add a layer. We picked orange, we had a great time, it felt good to be a kid again, you get a official certificate when your done. Hard to believe is over 5000 pounds now.

A small group of us stopped to see the ball of paint and add our layer. We got to choose our color, and the paint rollers were on long sticks to help us from getting paint all over ourselves. It still wouldn't hurt to wear...More

We stopped by with two of our kids on a college visit to our oldest. The World's Largest Ball of Paint was a little bit magical, to be honest. It was like being given entrance to Oz, kind of mysterious and a little odd, but...More

I have to say I wasn't expecting much. We were killing time so we decide to take our group there. Never thought I would enjoy it so much. Not only do you get to see it, they allow you to add to it. The owners...More
