I'm torn on what Frontier City will be getting next season.  They are getting a new attraction there is a lot of rumors and not so clear evidence.  But what I can dig up I think the park is getting a new coaster in part of the  the concert/picnic grounds. That section will be reworked out for the new attraction. The Amphitheater would be a lot smaller and more stadium like layout. The Winged Warrior may be moved for this attraction to a new location in the park.  The construction will start as soon as the last concert of the season finishes that is King and Country on August 24th. I can see them doing this they reworked Timbertown and completely overhauled that area of the park.  So they could be taking sections at a time.  It's just hard to say can't make anything out on what is happening at the park for 2020. If they start construction end of August that should by time frame for a medium coaster bring it opening up during the summer of 2020. It is something to watch in the next month.

A coaster like Spider at Lagoon would fit inside the footprint of the building.  The coaster costs 3 million Dollar add that and a Skyscreamer for 2020.  They still would be under 5 million dollars.  I know it's clone and off the shelf coaster.

Before I head to bed I outlined the markers for Frontier City 2020.  The red dots are where I spotted the markers.  I outlined the area. Then there is two other spots I figure run from the power station that is in the Building. Looks Like Soaring Eagle will be removed/ or moved for the 2020 attraction.   My guesses is the SkyWarp Eclipse or even a small coaster in the area. You can see it is a rectangle shape.  Not in a square shape used for a Star Flyer.  Will be interesting if the whole section of the park has to be changed for this attraction it makes sense for them to start construction now for 2020.  Those markers are indeed for the 2020 attraction.  Big news for this small park. I've been calling the project "French Drain"  That is what I've been told by the park employees. The stakes have SF2020 165'   All kinds of markings in the area on the ground.

Construction for Frontier City's 2020 attraction has now started markers and stakes showed up today at the park.  The markers have SF 2020 on them and they encompass a large area.  A park manager before the stakes showed up today.  Last week during the concert a Oklahoma Coaster Club member posted photos of markings in the concert area and later was shot down immediately on their post that it was for a "French Drain".  This time around no manager quickly chimed in with a response.  to the large area staked out with numbers spray painted on the ground.  The stakes have SF 2020 some have numbers on the ones you can see have 165'.   I'm now going to label this mystery 2020 project  "French Drain" .

Frontier City owns a old hotel right next to their parking lot . Itís used for storage and in so disrepair. The company that owns the property. EPR out of Kansas City has the money to renovate the hotel for Six Flags. EPR is the largest entertainment company behind Disney. Bringing Six Flags on to mange this park I see big things happening at Frontier City. Oklahoma City a different City then it was 10-20 years ago. The Maps program changed the Metro that it has now become a destination city. Major cities across the nation have taken notice. The city once again a boom town. I feel EPR and Six Flags will bring this park back to a park people will want to visit. They definitely want to make it compliment nearby regional parks Six Flags Over Texas, Silver Dollar City and Worlds of Fun.

You knew this was coming Ride Sponsorships check out the attached images. Steel Lasso is now sponsored by Takis! Plus Six Flag  advertisement boards popped up throughout the park. If they bring in a serious ride coaster then sponsor the rides. Make this park better please Six Flags.

Change the subject I got a kick out of the little sign in my attached photo. Someone at the park installed the Wild Kitty tombstone to Frankieís Mine Train ride. They did use the old Wild Kitty track to hold the mine cars in the theme-ing elements in the infield.

I still have not got season passes/membership yet.  At this point in the year I might be better off waiting until they open for next year.


They are open till the first week of January. Plenty of season left and you still have Fright Fest one of the longest running in the country.  The all new Holiday In The Park.  Which was extremely impressive this past year for it's first year. The Main street Christmas Light show was amazing show to watch.  It is not the level of SDC but still it is extremely impressive for the size of the park.

Wild West Water Works get a brand new updated more flashier entrance. Six Flag-ish type of entrance.  They built out on the Gift Shop entrance and repainted the building this past week.  I heard the interior will be getting some refreshes. Wild West Water Works opens up this coming Saturday.

Also Frontier City has added a lot of comforts like more shaded seating areas like this area next to the Go Kart entry.  Another thing I noticed around the park they added drinking fountains with the water bottle refill options. It's the small things, If you get a chance to see the park this season. The changes  Six Flags has made around the park is extremely impressive.  I wasn't expecting Six Flags to do this much work in the off-season to Frontier City.

Here is closer look at Frankie's Mine train at Frontier City's The parks 6th and newest Coaster. (Since we found out this past week through a membership park newsletter that Six Flags considers Brain Drain A Larson Looper is indeed a coaster and not a flat ride. ) The new Zamperla Family Coaster arrived a few weeks ago and is sitting in the parking lot wrapped up like a Christmas present. Construction of the ride I guess will take the next couple of weeks.

I'm still having trouble getting photos uploaded of all the changes that happened at the park.  If you  do visit Frontier City this season you will be impressed on how much was done to the park.  Every square inch of the park was touched during the off season.
