A must see when you come to Tulsa. Especially now that an Amusement Park in France has a Golden Driller tower ride. And as big as the Statue of Liberty, it's worth coming to see.

Its just a huge statue, with rough design. You can't really expect many beauties of arts from it. It is just a symbol for drilling history. You can just drop by, take a picture, then move on your journey.

I think this is a fun, quick stop if you are in Tulsa. You don't realize how huge this statue is. Take a photo on his boot!

It is an interesting feature if Tulsa and good if you want a 10 minute photo opportunity or you are at the show grounds anyway.

We had to drive by the Golden Driller as it is another iconic Route 66 must see in Tulsa. It has had some work done to it recently, I believe.

This was cool - one of those kitchy things you have to see on a road trip. He had a shirt painted on when we were there so it kinda felt like it took away from the yellowness of him.

What's not to love about an iconic giant on the fairgrounds in Tulsa? Great photo opportunity. Wouldn't be Tulsa without him.

It's a cool site to see, but at the end of the day, it's still just a really large statue. I took pictures of my fiance and stepson next to it just for a frame of reference.
