Thanks to Jim Bolin and his company Bolin Enterprises, Inc, he helped put Casey on the map with several World’s Largest Attractions in one city. Eight of them to be exact that are recognized by the Guinness World Records. Hardest part is deciding which World’s Largest Attraction is your favorite.

Seeing the attractions – World’s Largest in Casey
We arrived from Interstate 70 and noticed our first ‘big thing’ the big token coin at the bank on the left. Further down the road on the right was the big rocking horse. If you head to main street you will find a lot of the World’s Largest Roadside Attractions in that area. We stopped in to see the largest wooden shoes (dutch shoes, clogs to exact size 161) and got a map and directions on where everything was.
Bring your camera, selfie stick and have fun
There are many shops located downtown to enjoy. We went quickly through town as everything was closed and it was getting dark fast. It took us around an hour to see all the attractions.
Ideally, we would have arrived earlier, shopped and ate in town.
The rocking chair, wind chime and teeter totter are all across the street from each other, making it a great point to stop, shop and check out these attractions.
You will get to explore the downtown area as you walk around to find all these attractions. The corn on the cob is just outside of the World’s Largest Knitting Needles.
The big pencil is down the street from the mailbox and bird cage.
There is also a minion some where downtown that is big outside of a store.
You can climb into this mailbox and see the town.
At the Club House at the public golf course outside of downtown, you’ll find this huge golf tee.We had a ball trying to find all the roadside attractions before the sun went down. Have you saw these roadside attractions? Which is your favorite?
