The center of the universe is an acoustic anomaly; when one stands in the center of the circle and makes a noise, that noise is echoed back several times louder than it was made.For travelers who use our world travel planner, Tulsa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Center of the Universe and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
The truly amazing thing is that no one standing outside of the circle can hear the echo. Talk to yourself and listen to your own echo respond, while none outside the circle will hear. Or rather, that’s how the legend goes...

This is such a cool little place! You likely won't spend much time here, but the phenomenon of that spot is just so neat. It's fun for kids and adults alike!
I ended up parking in a parking garage nearby. I thought it was so fun to stand in the circle and hear my own echo. My 4 kids each tried and none of them seemed to be able to hear it (ages 2-12). It was easy to do en route to other planned activities.
