Park News - (4/20/21) Frontier City has announced the addition of FriYAY Nights, where the park is now open from 5pm to 10pm on Friday Nights in addition to their longer-hour weekend schedule. It’s always fun to visit a theme park at night, so take advantage of the night hours on Fridays from now through May 28th.
(3/28/21) New photos sent in from Frontier City show that the Tumbleweed ride has now been completely removed from the park.
(3/21/21) I was sent a few Frontier City updates about a week ago, but I’m just getting to it now. According to our source you can look forward to the Gunslinger and Renegade Rapids returning to operate full time very soon. They reported that Gunslinger was awaiting a shipment of parts from Zamperla which they are hoping will get the ride reopened by mid-April. Renegade Rapids is said to have a major overhaul to the ride, along with some refreshing of the theming as well, which is always a good thing. You may notice a lot of original effects that had become dormant over the years now working again.
On the Entertainment side, look for the return of the park’s Magic Show and they will also bring concerts back by late Summer 2021, but at reduced capacity compared to previous years.
On the removed ride side of things, it was confirmed that the Tumbleweed ride has been retired and will be removed. Tumbleweed was the park’s aging Rotor ride, where riders stand against the wall inside of a rotating barrel shaped room and are stuck to the wall by centrifugal force. I know there are very few of these left anymore in the US, and the only one that comes to mind right now is the Turkish Twist at Canobie Lake Park, though they may be a couple more out there.
In other news the previous construction noticed in the Go Kart area is for a new warehouse and maintenance facility. Our source also has a little more info to share about that notice last month that Wildcat would have new trains. From what I’m told this is true… Wildcat will feature a new train that is being delivered from RMC, but is sounds like they will also be keeping their existing PTC train as well. So I’m not quite sure how that will work, or exactly what the new RMC train will look like, but I’m sure someone will send in pictures and updates as soon as they spot it rolling.
Overall it was said that the park has refreshed a lot of theming to the buildings and facades around the park to give it a more clean and updated look. Even the talking Buffalo was said to have been given an update by the Sally Dark Rides crew.
(2/27/21) According to a Six Flags press release the wooden Wildcat roller coaster at Frontier City will feature “all new trains” this season. No further details were given, but according to RCDB the Wildcat had been running a pair of new PTC trains (Three 3-Bench Cars) since 1999, which replaced the original trains, though it is thought that one of the two PTC trains was sent elsewhere sometime before 2004, leaving it with one train. Keep an eye out for a new trains to be seen testing soon, as the park is set to open for the season on March 13th.
(2/2/21) According to a post on Facebook some land clearing is going on at Frontier City where the Thunder Road Raceway was. They say that the land from the old maintenance bay over to the go kart station area is all being cleared out, likely for some kind of new planned addition. One line of thought is that the park may be making room for some kind of attraction being removed and transferred from another park in the Six Flags chain. Anyone know more?
(11/29/20) Frontier City is open for the Six Flags Holiday in the Park event on select dates now through Jan. 3, 2021. Guests can enjoy holiday decor, lights, food and music, as well as select rides! Click here for the official details.
2021 - Wahoo Racer @ Six Flags Hurricane Harbor - (6/16/20) Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Oklahoma City has confirmed they will reopen the park on June 19. For some reason they’ve only posted this on their FB page, and have ignored their Twitter since 2019 and haven’t even bothered to post anything about opening on their official website either as of this writing, so it’s kind of weird.
Either way, a reader sent in a couple of photos of the park’s new Wahoo Racer slides, which appear to have the slide part set up, and just need to finish the stairs up the tower and whatever landscaping needs to be done under it. Elsewhere in the park I’m told that the Bermuda Triangle slide complex is currently being repainted and having some new stairs added.
Out front they have taken down the old White Water Bay sign and should be putting up the new Six Flags Hurricane Harbor sign any day now.
(8/30/19) I forgot to mention Frontier City in yesterday's huge Six Flags 2020 announcement coverage. While I didn’t see anything announced for Frontier City itself, there was a new announcement for the White Water Bay waterpark… or rather two. For starters White Water Bay will be renamed Six Flags Hurricane Harbor starting in 2020 and will add a major new slide to the park called Wahoo Racer, a new six-lane mat racer slide.
