KEY Oklahoma City

Along the edge of downtown Oklahoma City runs the Oklahoma River, a 7-mile-long waterway that has reinvented outdoor recreation in the capital city. The only river in the country to be named a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Site, the Oklahoma River features OKC RIVERSPORT activities including competitive and recreational land-based and water sports.

RIVERSPORT Adventures get you on the 80-foot tall SandRidge Sky Trail, the tallest adventure course in the world, featuring the Sky Slide and Rumble Drop free fall. Other world-class facilities on the banks of the Oklahoma River include the Chesapeake Boathouse, Chesapeake Finish Line Tower and the Devon Boathouse, home of the OKC National High Performance Center for rowing and canoe/kayak.

OKC RIVERSPORT is your passport to the most exciting adventures on the Oklahoma River. RIVERSPORT Adventures include the world’s tallest adventure course – the 80-foot SandRidge Sky Trail – and the Air Express Zip line, Extreme Air Launcher, Sky Slide, Rumble Drop free fall, and coming soon, the Sky Zip, a 700-foot zip line across the Oklahoma River. Younger kids enjoy the Sky Tykes mini sky trail, the Cloud Bounce and Kids Zip. Plus you’ll find all your RIVERSPORT favorites – the kayak plunge, stand up paddle boarding and dragon boating, as well as kayak, pedal boat, water bike, bicycle and long board rentals.

OKC RIVERSPORT also provides rowing and kayaking lessons for those who want to get on the water. Start with an introductory class and work your way up to master your technique. Or join us for a group paddling excursion.

The Oklahoma River is the site of many events and festivals throughout the year, including the Stars & Stripes River Festival, a Fourth of July festival with racing, family fun and fireworks, and the Oklahoma Regatta Festival, a three-day event featuring national and international rowing and canoe/kayak competition, including America’s only sanctioned night racing. Multi-use trails line the banks of both sides of the Oklahoma River, creating a 13-mile smooth, paved trail system for runners or cyclists.
