TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —

Executive director of The Tulsa Historical Society and Museum Michelle Place wrote panels describing the history of Tulsa and its Golden Driller, which are part of the gateway to the ride.
On behalf of Mayor G.T. Bynum, former Mayor Kathy Taylor presented a key to the city.

The amusement park is open from April to September.
