Trip Report: Frontier City Oklahoma City, OK 04/16/16

I apologize for the delay, but here is the trip report from my visit to Frontier City on 04/16/16 – Adam

 

I recently visited Frontier City in Oklahoma City for the ACE event OklaCoaster. This was my first ACE event and I was really excited to visit the park. The day started with some luminous clouds and cooler temperatures, but quickly warmed up.

Frontier City is one of the most beautiful parks I have ever visited. The park landscapes very well.

I personally love the water fountains at the front entrance.

A lot of the facades have been painted with a fresh coast of paint.

The first ride of the day was WildCat. That day was its 25th Anniversary, and the first 100 people on the ride got a 25th Anniversary WildCat T-shirt.

The next ride up was Sliver Bullet. It’s a really fun Schwarzkopf Coaster.

After that we rode the family coaster Steel Lasso.

It’s quite an exhilarating ride for a family coaster. This is one of my favorites in the park.

Later in the day we checked out the Lason Looper, Brain Drain. It’s a lot of fun with some awesome hang time.

    Great photographs! I love the Wildcat, it is probably my fourth favorite wooden roller coaster! I only wish that for it’s 25th season that the park would do a refurbishment including rebuilding the tunnels on the return trip of the ride and putting the double up element back on the third hill. Still a great ride!
