Oklahoma City's Frontier City Amusement Park

Frontier City Oklahoma City

Adam Knapp

With a Wild West theme, Frontier City is Oklahoma City's premiere amusement park. It originally opened in 1958, utilizing the western town created for the Oklahoma State Fair, and quickly became a top city attraction.

Owned and operated by Six Flags Theme Parks, Inc. before being sold in early 2007 to CNL Lifestyle Properties, Frontier City is managed by former owners Kieran Burke and Gary Story. The park boasts roller-coasters, other thrill rides, children's rides, games, concerts, and more.

Location & Directions

Frontier City is located in northeast Oklahoma City along I-35, between Hefner Road and NE 122 Street. After exiting I-35, get on North I-35 Service Road.

Hours of Operation

The Frontier City season begins in April. Hours vary by day and time of year, so you should always call guest services at (405) 478-2140 or ​check the website to confirm. In general, beginning in June, the park is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays for the summer season. The park is open on Saturdays until 11 p.m., sometimes 10 p.m., but it doesn't open until noon and closes at 8 p.m. on most Sundays.

Season Passes

A Frontier City season pass is a double park season pass, meaning it allows entrance to Frontier City and White Water Bay.

Ride and Attractions

Frontier City has a number of rides for the adults and for the kids. If you're seeking thrills, try:

  • Silver Bullet: Steel roller-coaster that reaches 45 mph
  • Wildcat: Classic wooden roller-coaster
  • Renegade Rapids: 8-person family boat ride
  • Steel Lasso: Debuting in the summer of 2008, the 50th anniversary of the park, the 965-foot custom-built suspended coaster travels 30 miles per hour.

If you're looking for something tamer or for the kids, consider:

  • Rio Grande: Children's train ride
  • Ferris Wheel: Classic ride with a great view of the park

2012 brought the $1.3 million, five-story Wild West Water Works attraction, a structure with 198 entry points, 8 slides, a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket, lounging deck, changing facilities, showers, and more.

To Eat or Buy

Frontier City offers several food options from the burgers of the Saddlerock Cafe to Tex-Mex favorites, BBQ, pizza, and sweets.

Shops sell everything from t-shirts and novelties to souvenirs and gifts. You can get a family portrait in Old West attire at Matthew Brady's Old Time Photography.


Frontier City does not allow outside food and drinks, offensive clothing or smoking. All park visitors are required to wear a shirt and shoes, and there is no running on the grounds.
