OK- OK City

Other than the frontier city amusement park, what else is there to do in the area?
We (2A 2 Teens) like history, amusement parks
Museums.

A couple things we have done with the kids when in OKC area is the Omniplex, which is a hands on type of science museum. My kids enjoyed it in their early teens, not sure how older kids would like it. We also went to the Cowboy Museum. Not sure if that has changed in the past few years, but it mostly contained art of western era themes, rather than a museum of artifacts. But we enjoyed it. We also visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial. This is a very sobering Memorial & something that should be seen. We were there when it was only a fence with memorials in & along side the fence, & you could still see much of the damage done to surrounding buildings. Went back after the National Memorial was completed, & it was done in a very tasteful & thoughtful manner. As for Frontier City, we also went there. I have a warning of: if you go on a hot day, be especially prepared, more so than on a hot day at any other amusement parks. Unless it has changed, the park has the slow down attitude of the surrounding area. The log flume ride had only 1 or 2 logs running, had about 10 sitting in reserve. This caused a very long wait in the hot sun. Their roller coasters only had 1 train running. So extra wait in the hot sun there. Unless it has changed, park personnel were not adept at moving the people thru & onto the rides.

If you like baseball and there is a game on when you're in town, go to a Red Hawks game in Bricktown. There are also lots of nice restaurants in Bricktown and a watertaxi. (and a Bass Pro Shop) Not far from the National Memorial (which also has a museum of the bombing as well--very well done.)
In the early evening, when it's not so hot, a walk at Lake Hefner (on the east side) is nice--restaurants here, too, or you can bring a picnic (would the kids like that?)
