A Wicked Water Ride

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 12:00:00 am

As regular TBL readers know, the Oklahoma River was once a weird, wild world, especially before MAPS. Thankfully, those days are long gone and now you can experience the river’s vibrancy year-round. There are even opportunities to celebrate some of your favorite holidays in style – like Halloween. Why not take one of Oklahoma River Cruises’Haunt the River” trips? Departing from Exchange Landing at 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in October, cruisers can experience a decorated boat, scary music, appetizers and a cash bar. Looking for a cruise with less booze for the kiddos? Not to worry. Kids’ Haunt the River cruises depart every Saturday afternoon from two locations (Regatta Park: 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.; Exchange Landing: 2:40 p.m. and 4:10 p.m.) in October, complete with candy, activity books, spooky cartoons and costume contests! Just make sure they’re not dressed as a pirate or anyone from Gilligan’s Island. That could unnecessarily freak out the captain.

Also, don’t forget Riversport OKC’s Haunt the River event. This Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 26 and 27), enjoy Halloween-themed adventure activities like Punkin’ Chunkin from the Zombie Zip, the Ghost Bounce, and even something called the Candy Corn Climb (also known as “heaven”). Cap off your autumnal adventures by taking in the SandRidge Youth League Fall Championships under the lights on Saturday, Oct. 26. Now get out there and take advantage of all the ways you can haunt the river!
