If you’re driving the full length of Route 66, you’re going to need plenty of gas. Maybe even enough to fill this roadside attraction: the World’s Tallest Gas Pump in Sapulpa, Oklahoma.
This 66-foot tall gas pump can be found in front of the Heart of Route 66 Auto Museum in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. The museum commissioned the big piece to draw visitor’s off the road and into their space.
The roadside attraction is shaped like a vintage gas pump that would have been found at service stations across Route 66 in its heyday. At the top is an illuminated 14-foot globe that advertises the museum.
Originally the giant gas pump was meant to have an inner spiral staircase and observation deck inside but, due to safety codes and complications, that part of the project was scrapped. It was completed in May 2018 and was awarded the Best New Attraction in Oklahoma award for that year.
I don’t know about you, but I am PUMPED to see this Oklahoma roadside attraction.
The World’s Tallest Gas pump is one of the best Oklahoma Route 66 attractions. Looking for more? Also be sure to visit the Blue Whale of Catoosa, Arcadia Round Barn, Ed Galloway’s Totem Pole Park, Buck Atom’s Cosmic Curios on 66, and the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum.
