Reviewed 20 December 2012

I love oddball, quirky attractions. The chair is big, but not as big or as nice as the "biggest chair" in Fanning, Missouri. It is free to see, and worth a picture. And i didnt feel in danger, as one other reviewer noted.

“Big Chair”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

What you see is what you get. It's just a big metal chair, you can not go up and sit in it. There is no sign to explain it. It's just a chair.

“Even bad as a roadside attraction!”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

This i neat to see but don't get out of the car! There is no explainasion about the site & no cost to see it it's seldomly repainted & often covered in bird droppings & in a GREAT area if your looking to be raped or robbed!

“Very big chair!”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

We love finding quirky things like this. This is one big chair and somewhat off the beaten path as many of these type things are. It is easy to access and there is plenty of parking and space to get good pictures. I found crossing the street for pictures to be the best option to get this thing all in the shot. You can park your car right next to it to show the scale of this thing. Not hard to find and worth the 15 minutes to see it. Unfortunately you can't sit in the chair.
