I visited The Center Of The Universe in downtown Tulsa as a bit of a sceptic as to what it actually did. I read that by standing on the marker near a railway bridge, all sorts of weird stuff happens with your voice.
Yeah sure thing……….or so I thought.
I failed science in high school (largely due to lack of commitment rather than ability), but I am not entirely sure what happens at this spot. Whatever it is, if you stand on the marker & talk, your voice sounds really bizarre, like you are talking into a microphone or something. However, to everyone else around, you sound completely normal. Bizarre !!!
I did find it a little hard to find, and while I had a car, it wasn’t showing up on my GPS. However, it’s on the continuation of Boston Ave in downtown Tulsa. If you park along Archer St, there is a pedestrian walk opposite the start of Boston Ave, and there is a “cloud” suspended in the air by a post nearby, which guides you in, and it’s also nearby the old Tulsa Union Depot building, which looks to be a nice piece of small old skool architecture. Visually, the "Center Of The Universe" just looks like a paved circle, so don't expect to be wowed in that regard.
Well done Tulsa – a landmark that is free & with an element of mystery to it. I think I spent a total of ten minutes there, so it’s also very quick to visit.
