  • The site's volunteers were on the ball. Seeing Cawker City's Ball of Twine was lots of fun, and a great way to wrap up part of our trip!  more »
  • How can you not love the old classic roadside attractions. Yes it's a big ball of twine that might not impress technology driven teens. But it's great. A lady came by and let us add more twine to the ...  more »

  • It's a good diversion from the hectic world around us. I had learned of it on a list of attractions in each state that should be visited. Not necessarily the grandest, but the quirkiest, or unusual. It was on our route from South Dakota to Texas, so I told everyone it was on the list. Couldn't not stop then, and I'm so glad we did. Met Linda the caretaker and she provided me some twine to add, now I can say I'm part of a world record setting team.
  • Thought this was silly until we stopped, but it's cool to see and worth visiting you're nearby. Linda, the "keeper" happened to stop by while we were there and she will let you add one revolution of twine, which means you are making it the largest it's ever been.
  • It was about what you expect. Quirky..... in a run down part of town...a fun 10 minutes
  • Thus is a kitchy attraction but a must on any bucket list of roadside attractions. It was a sizable ball with a unique smell, which I could not place. Got some fun picks and headed down the way.
  • Accidentally stumbled into Cawker City, KS taking a wrong turn originally going toward I-70, (changed plans to go toward I-80) but it was a nice pit stop. The locals were very accommodating. No bathroom until dollar general down the road:)
