Worth a visit.

This is something that is worth doing if passing through the area, or taking a walk around down-town Tulsa. Good for young children and all ages.

Bricks missing and torn up a little this is crying out for some tender loving care and a notice to explain the echos and the nearby cloud on a stick sculpture. Very glad we found a local to be docent and Tulsa encyclopedia or we would have been underwhelmed

Yes, the Center of the Universe is in Tulsa, OK. Just drop by and find out the magic that exists there--I don't want to spoil the surprise but just talk when you get there-to others or yourself and there will be an answer.

Our hotel was close to this attraction, so we thought we would check it out. There is nothing really to it. It's a spot marked on a bridge that you stand over. It does echo like crazy while standing there, but that was it. We thought there would be more to it.

It's a great place to take people who've never been. It's really cool the way you stand in the middle and the echo makes you feel like you are alone in an isolated room. It's a great place to propose to the "center of your universe"!

It was weird to stand in the middle of the circle and speak only to hear an echo that no one else can hear. We all got some pretty good laughs.

The center of the universe has some very interesting acoustics in regards to echo's while standing there however don't anticipate too much else. It's a neat place to visit but needs a little maintenance (brickwork, etc...).

You can hear the echo when inside the circle, but it is nothing like what the reviews said. A little disappointing!
