Super easy to access roadside attraction, just off Route 66. Parking is very accessible, just off the road. Not a crowded attraction. The history of the statue is interesting enough. Get a photo.

I love the golden driller, the fact that it is 75 feet amazes me. It is a really cool spot to stop at when in Tulsa. it represents much in Tulsa the boom-town! You should for sure stop and have a photo op.

Hopefully you have already stopped at the Blue Whale of Catoosa on your way in, and the “Center of the Universe” (Google it) is also on your itinerary, but when in Tulsa, you have to stop for the picture. It is a couple minute stop,...More

This is a quick tourist photo kind of place. Drive up, shoot a picture or two, then drive off. It’s pretty impressive to look at, not much else.
