Great pics! You made it through the park on a great day(s). The La Vibora line being contained inside the entrance is a good sign of a small crowd.
The spinning tamales and the nearby rocking donkeys on the train track are recycled theming pieces from the Ferrocarril Fiesta Train. It was one of the parks original rides that ran through the general area where La Vibora is located now.
The actual description on that history page was "dancing tamales", but you get the idea. At one time, the music track from the original ride played in the area of the tamales and burros. One of the original diesel locomotives from the ride is used as a service engine to tow the steam locomotives in and out of the roundhouse during the off season rehab.
^ That could be an interesting thread - photos/videos of animation/animatronics (working and not) throughout a theme park. And not part of any attraction. Just as it/they are, to entertain people who pass by. Or enter the park, like this set I showed, did.
Today's update takes us to frontier city theme park in Oklahoma city. This little off the radar park has a lot to offer for the entire family.
They are home to 5 coasters, several spin and puke rides, shows, and a fun flume ride and dark ride. There is also a LOT for the kids to do. We really enjoyed this park, and would return in the future if in the area.
Onto the pictures...
So we left Dallas at 10am with plans on being at frontier city around 2pm. However, this guy held us up another hour and a half. How does this happen? Not only was he facing the opposite direc8 of traffic, but he ended up in a for in a construction zone.
We made it!
This is the entrance of the park. Inside this entrance, there is a large gift shop and the entrance to our first coaster.
The diamondback coaster(Not the kings island version)
Diamondback is a classic Arrow shuttle loop
Nice train, ruff ride
Wild kitty is the parks kiddy coaster.
One more shot.
The park has a bunch of miniature scale houses for the kids to play in.
Complete with 2nd floor
Lots for the kids to do.
The park is nicely themed.
Brain drain is the parks newest attraction.
These things are popping up in parks everywhere.
The lay of the land
Nice landscaping everywhere
Steel lasso is a mini suspended coaster. This coaster had a slightly different layout than the others I have been on.
Great pictures from Frontier City! The park has been making some significant improvements in the post-Six Flags era. That log flume is awesome, and there are so many good flats. It's one of the best small parks. All the coasters run a single train, but they have some of the best single train operations I've ever seen. The one train gets unloaded and loaded so quickly. And bonus points for seeing Charlie Daniels!
