Thrills! Chills! Spills!



Shoot the Silver Bullet at Frontier City
11501 N. Interstate 35 Service Road

along nearly 2,000 feet of steel track at speeds reaching 48 mph on the
Silver Bullet. Oklahoma’s highest roller coaster takes you 83 feet up,
only to send you into a heart-pounding, 80-foot drop down. Your hair
will stand on end even before you hit the loop.


Scale such great heights at Rocktown Climbing Gym
200 S.E. Fourth

the walls inside and outside Rocktown Climbing Gym may be the closest
you’ll get to being Spider-Man. The converted grain elevator houses
several silos offering climbs up to 90 feet tall and 140 feet in total
length. New in the last year is a 60-degree bouldering wall.

Get a Mega-Wedgie at White Water Bay
3908 W. Reno

trip down the Mega- Wedgie definitely ends in a splash ... and a
you-know-what with your swimsuit. Hike up six stories of stairs to take
the near-vertical slide. Just don’t expect to relax as you shoot down
the 277-foot speed slide at approximately 25 feet per second before
plummeting into a 64-foot free fall.


Make a splash at Wake Zone Cable Park
3501 N.E. 10th

let it be said that landlocked states can’t have kick-butt water
sports. Take wakeboarding. At Wake Zone, you skim across the water and
up ramps, all while being pulled by an overhead cable system — look, Ma! No boat! You’ll be busting out some midair trick moves in no time.

Be all like, ‘Pew-pew-pew!’ at Laser Quest
10944 N. May

A dark maze. Swirling fog. Laser guns. This high-tech twist on hide-and-seek is like playing The Most Dangerous Game in wherever TRON was set. Save for another go-round, what more do you and your closely targeted friends need?


Slip the surly bonds of Earth at SandRidge Sky Trail
725 S. Lincoln

the tallest course of its kind in the world, the newly opened Sky Trail
represents six stories of climbing adventure — like a ropes course in
the sky! Scheduled to open Monday are an 80-foot free-fall jump and a
72-foot enclosed slide, also the world’s tallest. Geronimooooo!

Go up, up and away at Elevation Trampoline Park
14402 N. Lincoln, Edmond

How high can you go? That,
my friend, is up to you! Launch yourself skyward at Elevation’s floor
full of trampolines — even the walls are covered with them! Not exciting
enough? Get a group together for one helluva spring-loaded game of
Dodgeball Xtreme 3D.

Drive fast and furious at Pole Position Raceway
2905 N.W. 36th

your life a quarter-mile at a time? You can here, racing against up to
11 others on an indoor track at speeds as high as 45 mph. Steer solo or
book in advance to challenge friends in races lasting 45 or 90 nonstop


Take aim at Dodge City Paintball
16425 N.W. 150th, Piedmont

Put down the Xbox controller and go outside for some colorful gunslinging action. Plenty of obstacles and hiding places await, both made by man and Mother Nature.
