If there is any kindness in the universe, Oklahoma City will be spared the record-setting heat of a year ago. But even if it's a milder summer, we know temperatures are soon to reach sweltering highs. This year, there are a couple of new options for water fun in the metro area.
- Fun park Andy Alligator's, one of the top attractions in Norman, has added to its go-kart, mini-golf and video game paradise. A new 5-acre, $4.5 million water park addition opened this weekend. It includes a 45-foot tall, four-lane racer slide, a 400-foot tube slide, a long lazy river, water play structures and a splash zone for the little kids.
- A new $1.3 million, five-story "Wild West Water Works" attraction is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend at Frontier City. The structure features 198 entry points, 8 slides, a 1,000 gallon tipping bucket, lounging deck, changing facilities, showers and more, and access is included with park admission.
- The summer season at White Water Bay begins Saturday, May 19th. Double-park season passes for both White Water and Frontier City are now available for $69.99 plus tax.
- City-operated spraygrounds and swimming pools will soon be open as well. The water will be on at the spraygrounds on May 25th. Earlywine and Will Rogers aquatic centers get started the following day, and June 12th is opening day for Northeast and Woodson pools.
