“no one hears you scream in Tulsa”
This mysterious anomaly of an experience, aptly titled the Center of the Universe, consists of yelling, screaming, sneezing, farting, burping, and generally making noise that provides an echo... yet only those standing in the Center of the Universe can hear. There's a lesson in their somewhere, but more importantly, it's a super cool stop to make and try out on the road!
Personally I would say don't bother going out of your way for this. It's more like the sound effect heard when talking into a fan, though somewhat weaker. If you are passing through, might be worth a stop to check it out. I personally was unimpressed, though.
We went to the middle of the universe sight. At first I wasn't sure, it seemed like it wasn't up to the hype, then I stood on the spot and started talking and making noise, and it was super cool! Definitely an amazing spot!
This is right in the middle of downtown. However, there weren't many people there so we went right up and gave it a try. It's amazing, but true, you can only hear the echo inside the circle
Almost 6 hours from St Louis
I've been to the center of the universe and this is not it.
Had a hard time finding it. Wasn't sure where it was since it is not marked in any way. It was ok, not worth the trip unless you are in the area.
Definitely a pretty cool spot if you're in the area - though it helps to have a local show you the trick. Don't be afraid to speak up.
Quick stop, but something quirky to break up the drive.
Fun stop if going through Tulsa. Kids thought it was neat, it actually worked. There are actually several circles that you can stand in the center of and hear your echo.
I agree with the others that say don't go out of your way for this. But it's pretty cool nonetheless. It's at an odd, unmarked location so use the maps and pictures to find it. Stand in the center of the circle and make some noise!
