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.

Very cool to see this! We were actually geocaching in the area and found a geocache near the statue! Really super large when you are standing underneath it! Would recommend coming here during the fair!

One of "giants" at Route 66, not a muffler man, but driller is huge. Short side trip from Route 66, but quite easy to find,

He's something you won't see every day and he's there rain, sleet, snow, or shine. He sometimes wears a shirt but you never know when... he's just cool to see, being HUGE and all!

Was quick and easy to access a pic. Free and loved the shaved ice snow cones they sell right next to it

I've seen it many times but this time it seemed to have more of an impact on me. It's such a Tulsa icon and I love that it is so approachable and easy to locate. When I think of Tulsa, I think of The Driller....More

This is a very large statue that is fun for a photo shoot. Other than that not much to do with it besides look around. I would suggest visiting on the weekend when other activites are taking place. Almost every Saturday, the Tulsa Fair Grounds...More

If you like to post pictures of large statues on your social media stream, this may be a place for you. Otherwise, meh.
