larrygator Posted August 23, 2015 Author Share Posted August 23, 2015 (edited) August 13th, 2015 - Frontier City I arrived in Oklahoma City on the night of the 12th, after stopping at some giant casino (Winstar, maybe) just over the Oklahoma border the night prior. Thanks for mentioning this place Chad you cost me $300 I arrived at Frontier City at opening and spent almost 3 hours there. I loved the consistent western theme throughout the park including a cast member putting on a skit with three random kids before the rope drop in which one kid was ordained mayor for the day. I knew it would be a big brisket day and I needed to stay on schedule. This is the giant casino that took my money. The front gate at Frontier City These three kids are competing to be mayor for a day and main street establish the frontier theme Even though the park is not part of Six Flags any more they got one of these. Themeing in the games area Themed show area Tumbleweed, a well themed rotor I know this is a tribute to someone local but all I thought of was Jamal Mashburn I dog Schwarzkopf coasters a lot, but I liked this one and rode it multiple times. 3....2...1 waiting for Dorney Park people to start bitching Taken from the waterplay area, I was really hoping that I would have something nice to say about this coaster. At least I have nothing bad to say about it. Oh wait something good, I love these signs in the queue. It's nice when parks recognize great coaster not in their chain. I was very close to riding Renegade Rapids, knowing that I'd be leaving the park soon but skipped it. It was breezy enough that my Winged Warrior was turned 90 degrees most of my flight, but it was unsnappable. Amusing tombstone in the Boot Hill Cemetery I really enjoy cheesy dark rides and this one delivered. Even the photographers carry the theme, I took this as I was leaving the park without riding Diamondback. No big loss since I rode it over 30 years ago as Lightning Loops. As soon as I sat down in my car, I saw it running so I went back to ride it for the sake of nostalgia. I should have stayed in my car. In my next update I'll reveal the name and location of this phenomenal BBQ joint, along with two other BBQ joints and a bonus credit.
