If you’re in the mood to get up, up and away, we have some ideas to put some literal littoral air between your feet and the place where the water meets the land.
You’ve heard it’s windy in Oklahoma? Well, that’s hard to deny, but one of the good things about that fact is that OKC makes a great place for wind-plus-water-related action sports. “Kite Point” or “Kite Beach” on the east side of Lake Hefner is a great place to kiteboard, windsurf, parasail, and other associated action-water-sport activities. If you need to get started, a number of area companies offer lessons and places to buy gear.
Moving south to the Oklahoma River, the unique SandRidge Sky Trail (above) offers 80 vertical feet of rope bridges, balance beams, and other cool climbing obstacles. The higher you go, the more challenging! We know, it sounds scary, but don’t shy away, friends – you’re safely harnessed in. And the best part? Once you’ve made it to the top, you don’t have to climb back down. Simply take advantage of America’s tallest slide, the Sky Slide, or the Rumble Drop free fall experience.
Oh, and one more thing…
The new SandRidge Sky Zip. This is really all we have to say, but we’ll go ahead and say some more: Yes, it’s a 700-foot zip line. Across the river. And back. Yes, you need to do this.
Fall Hours: Saturday and Sunday 1 – 8 p.m.
