“Bring a great attitude to a unique landmark”
Review of The Golden Driller

The Golden Driller
Ranked #12 of 128 things to do in Tulsa
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018

The Golden Driller is a classic landmark for Tulsa which has attracted visitors for decades. To have a rich Golden Driller experience, bring a positive attitude, a camera and something to eat or drink. My family has a tradition of having tailgates under the Golden Driller, especially when visitors are in town. These gatherings have created many nice memories.

This is an attraction for the whole family. Its a fun picture opportunity and there is even a street vendor always on site to let your family have a little snack while you are there. Oklahoma's way of sharing their rich oil history. Located centrally and near shops and food, it will be a nice short stop while you are in Tulsa.

This is a statue in a parking lot. Not much to it but it is cool to see. Drive by and at least take a picture and read the plaque it’s interesting as to why the statue is there.

This is a statue outside the expo fair pavilion. It is a Tulsa landmark, but I would say unless you happen onto (or you have exhausted ALL of your options and have finished ALL of Netflix) it, don't take the time to seek it out. Sadly, they closed the little amusement park that was nearby. There are more interesting things to see in Tulsa for sure.

This IS an iconic Tulsa landmark, and it is a fun drive by, but it’s not a destination. It is located on grounds with the Expo Center, and location of the Tulsa State Fair, but the “attraction” is just the statue. No gift shop or museum or anything.
