Frontier City

Frontier City is the largest theme park in the state of Oklahoma. Located in Oklahoma City, the park is open from April through October. Known for its Western theme, the park offers diverse rides. Three magnificent roller coasters – the Wildcat, Diamondback and Silver Bullet - as well as two water rides - the Renegade Rapids and the Mystery River Log Flume - form part of the 50 rides on offer.

Apart from the death defying thrills of the above mentioned roller coasters and water rides, Frontier City offers plenty of other thrills and spills. Quick Draw is one of those. It’s an interactive dark ride in which riders are handed pistols with infrared LEDs to shoot targets, based on which each rider receives a score. The Hangman is a tower/drop ride. Here riders are seated in a ring of seats harnessed to a cable system that launches the riders strapped in their seats into the air for a few minutes before plummeting back.

The Mystery River Log Flume features a log themed boat ride through a water canal, while the Renegade Rapids carries visitors through simulated white water rapids. Frontier City has truly set a benchmark for future theme parks in Oklahoma to live up to. It holds the record for having the tallest coaster in Oklahoma, the Silver Bullet that rises up to 83 feet with a top speed of 45mph.
