Jay I don’t know but I feel it was successful I also know people here in OKC who got one or the other they wanted to check out Holiday In the Park and Fright Fest.  Saturday I went to the park and when I went to get my dining vouchers I waited in a long line. I was talking to a guy he got the membership for him his daughter. He hasn’t been to the park in over 10 years. With OKC proximity to Six Flags Over Texas. People here said what the heck I can take a weekend or day trip visit Over Texas. I feel this is a win win situation. People who were cautious this year I will think take advantage of the flash sale next year.

Hello everyone let me clear some things up I spoke with somebody from the park.  I'm excited and Shave The Whales no worries on some of your concerns.

The entire kids area is being touched everysingle attraction.  The rides being removed are the flying Dragons which didn't fit the park.  The Indian Canoes which I understand are an operation nightmare and the current Wild Kitty Coaster.  The new rides are all Zamperla rides.   The new kiddie coaster is a brand new Zamperla Family Gravity coaster.  The planes will I assume go where the Flying Dragons are located.  The Frogs will go where the outdoor area of the petting zoo.  The petting zoo which comes and goes will not be back next season maybe in the future in the indoor area.  The Barge which is the only used ride is coming from Six Flags Over Texas that will replace the canoes.  The whole area is getting a refresh every single corner.  The buildings are staying.  The area was called "Paul Bunyans Timber Town"  Paul Bunyan is being dropped and it will be just known as Timber Town.   

I'm excited for it because that area has not been touched since 1997 when the area opened up to the public.   It was showing it's age.   The new ride names are


 This is from the media press release

Frankie’s Mine Train, a family coaster as wild as the West itself;
Billy’s Frog Hopper, a fully interactive jumping ride that will take families up, down, and all-around;
Rocky's Ranger Planes, a classic spinning ride that will take kids to new heights, and;
Sheldon’s Sea Adventure, an innovative family ride combining a unique blend of rocking and whirling motions.


I also from the press release looked up the new Park President(GM) looks like he is from Six Flags Over Georgia.  His name is  Trevor Leonard. 

WildCat is not going anywhere it is staying for years to come   Also if you have noticed their website the will be open for two straight weeks the last week in December and the first week of January.  They also tacked the Black Friday Weekend for Holiday in the Park.

Well,  You have too start somewhere in the park.  Why not the kids area.  It's going to be changed they better keep the little buildings!!  That is all I'm saying.

Swoosh it won't be called that this year to much money spent on material for this year.  Maybe next year which I can believe because Six Flags is too busy catering to being "Politically Correct".  That is one reason I didn't like the Frontier City going back under Six Flags management.  One reason why I like Silver Dollar City they don't hide who they are if you don't like it then don't go too their park.

They just announced Holiday in the Park is coming to FC

I don't see anywhere online about "Holiday in the Park"  They announced last season " A Frontier Christmas". I looked at FC website and that has not changed to HITP.

I learned that with Six Flags if the park is not doing any type of teasing then they are not getting anything Spectacular.  That Six Flag Parks will start doing teases online and in the park if it is something large for the park.

 With Frontier City and the newly aquired parks Six Flags has to spend a lot of money to upgrade the computer systems  etc. Change all the operating expenditures. They took over management in June. So there was not enough time for them really get a large attraction.  My guesses and that is because of the timeline it will be a smaller family attraction. Maybe a drop tower or some other type of smaller ride.  Additional things They will do maybe  ride updates something like repaint Silver Bullet do a updated like they did at Magic Mountain with Revolution.  Diamond Back has the station roof that is sitting in the boneyard maybe the will spruce up its' station.  Stuff like that to the park.  Next season do something that will make Oklahoman's happy.   That is my prediction.

1958 when the park was created one of the Display features they have at the park till this day. That is Boothill Cemetery. Today I noticed the sign was missing from the fake Graveyard. I later learned that it was removed because it was racially offensive by the title "Boothill Cemetery". Mainly the term "Boothill" the park removed the sign because you know Six Flags they don't want to be the center of attention and or any controversy. "Boothill" which in the history of the term and has NO ties whatsoever with being racist or offensive. Here is the definition found online.

"Boot Hill, or Boothill, is the name for any number of cemeteries, chiefly in the American West. During the 19th century it was a common name for the burial grounds of gunfighters, or those who "died with their boots on".

My feeling I think the park should stand their ground and put the sign back up there is nothing offensive about the title of the cemetery. That has been part of the park since 1958. 60 years I think the sign needs to go back up maybe they should do a online poll if it stays or if goes. I don't know all I know there is nothing offensive about "Boothill"

I was at the park today they have been working on Fright Fest.  One is a new photo op area called Shelter 28. I'm thinking it may have live actors the way it is done up.  The scare zone that is normally constructed in Wildcats infield is much larger they added a lookout tower to the scare zone.  Also a Zombie Hunt Paint Ball game was added to one of the game sections. Another sign Fright Fest is coming they did a Six Flags thing and dyed one of the pools in the park Blood Red. Here is photos I took today.

Well "Shave the Whales" your thought about the park adding events to appeal to locals is spot on. I learned Friday that the park is adding an event "Oktoberfest" I'm not sure the dates.  Last time Six Flags had the park back in 2006 they started it the last two weekends of September and ended it the first weekend of October it overlapped that weekend with Fright Fest.  I will try too find out more details in the coming weeks.  I researched about the event and what it entailed when it was at the park last time.  It was like you expect out of Oktoberfest a German food and beer festival.   With German Music and dancing performances. Also note again the parking prices jumped up again by $5 dollars.  It is now $20 dollars to park in the lot.  I know the Parking Pass is $39.99 so if anyone visit  more then twice this season.  That is the best deal for you.   The park has 3 major events coming up now Oktoberfest, Fright Fest, and A Frontier Christmas.

Swoosh I emailed the park to find out about if the SF meal plan will be allowed to be used this season at Frontier City.   I'm still awaiting a response from the park.   I have a Frontier City meal plan the prices did go up a few dollars.  If you have a Frontier City meal plan you have a significant number of new meal options.  My favorite BBQ sandwich meal  has been added to what is now available with the meal plan.   Hopefully for Six Flag holders that soon you can use your dining pass. i

Six Flags started raising the prices recently it raised the parking from $9 too $15 Dollars at Frontier City. They also did this at White Water Bay it went from $7 too $15 dollars.   Today I was at the park and noticed all the menu screen turned off and the signs with prices of the food removed when I asked an employee about what I saw I was told that the prices on concession were going up this week.

Six Flags has made a recent change to the price It cost for parking at Frontier City. The recent increase went from $9 to $15. I asked a representive about the price increase they said it is expected to increase more during Fright Fest. It is expected too rise to $20 before the end of the season to be inline with the rest of the Six Flag’s Parks.
