No summer is complete until you’ve taken a trip to the waterpark. There’s something about riding waterslides, floating the lazy river or dodging waves in the wave pool that makes you feel like a kid again. Last summer we featured
six water parks that were a must-visit and this year we added eight more to our list. Whether you go for the kids or you’re still a kid at heart, check out these additional waterparks in the Sooner State to take your summer to a whole new level.
1. Wild West Water Works, Oklahoma City
Located on the grounds of Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Wild West Waterpark takes fun to a whole new level. This five-story tall structure has eight slides, a 1,000 gallon bucket of water that tips over on all who want to get wet and lots of other fun Western-themed toys.
2. Crystal Beach Aquatics Center, Woodward
Get ready to wind your way down two slides into a massive pool, then take a few laps in the swimming lanes. If relaxing is more your style, grab a lounge chair and bask in the sun.
3. Oasis Tropical Pool @ Choctaw Casino, Durant
For a relaxing resort-style pool, spend the night at Choctaw Casino in Durant for an oasis unlike anything else in the state. You'll be surrounded by tropical plants, waterfalls, cabanas and a gorgeous sparkling pool. A water slide, dive-in movies and a kiddie pool are also featured, so there's something for all ages to enjoy.
4. Pelican Bay Aquatic Center, Edmond
For a day of fun in the sun, enjoy the 150-foot waterslides, climbing wall, diving board, lap lanes, pools, mini lazy river and kiddie land. It's the perfect place to cool off and stay wet!
5. Splash Zone Waterpark, Enid
This park may be little but it's still packed with fun. Take a ride down the waterslide, splash in the water or lay poolside for an enjoyable day of summer fun.
6. City of Miami Waterpark, Miami
Oklahoma's largest municipal pool is not just a pool. It's filled with 20,000 sq. ft. of water, multiple slides and a unique aquatic structure.
7. Safari Joes H20 Waterpark, Tulsa
Located in the former Big Splash Waterpark, Safari Joe’s H20 has brought new life and attractions to this Tulsa attraction. Take a relaxing ride down the lazy river, ride Oklahoma’s only water roller coaster, glide down one of three water flumes, ride the waves in the wave pool or enjoy the new reptile attractions.
8. Aqua Park/Wibit @ Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Keystone Lake
