Cool stop. Hard to do this on a windy day. Needs some repair and a little TLC.

The Sonic Center of the Universe is even better if visiting after last call. You will be surprised to find that you won't be alone. The friendly locals will greet you and give you in-depth insights into this echoing portal of mystery. Banging on the knocker of the intergalactic antenna is even more satisfying after dark.

Don't worry - it is in the business district and hotels nearby give out much needed ear plugs (one pair per room).

My wife and I always try to visit roadside sites -- this was a good one. So strange; as soon as you stand at the center you can hear the echo.

On a side note: the big metal tower has two big knockers on it. A person from Tulsa said to knock the knockers and make a wish and it will come true. I will let you know if it works when I hit the lottery.

Center of the Universe

I just visited the center of the universe and was totally blown away!! I grew up in Tulsa in the 70's and never knew it was there. Stood on the "RAIL" and quietly said "hello" and was blown back by the "HELLO-O-O!" that answered! Gosh, I wonder if they speak our language? And what is it they want to tell us....
