World's Largest Chime Foot Piano
Located in P&G Go VibrantScape, an outdoor park located between Great American Ballpark and Paul Brown Stadium, is the world's largest chime foot piano. It was installed in 2015 and features a large set of chimes above a foot piano on the ground. People can step on the keys to ring the chimes. The chimes and piano were created by the Verdin Company, a company headquartered in Cincinnati that makes chimes, bells, street clocks, tower clocks, and carillons. The company was founded in 1842 and its first factory was located where Great American Ballpark now stands. The company has sent its products to over, 50,000 places around the world. The chimes can play pre-recorded music and ring on the hour. The attraction operates between 10am-11 and is closed during the winter.
