Visitors – especially those with kids - should visit the OKC Boathouse District where you can feel the rush of some of the most exciting adventure attractions in Oklahoma. RIVERSPORT Adventures now includes the SandRidge Sky Zip, a zip line that runs 700-feet across the Oklahoma River and back, starting at the top of the 80-foot tall SandRidge Sky Trail.
After putting on a harness, you’ll take the stairs to the top of the SandRidge Sky Trail. Be sure to stop at the “selfie cam” for a quick photo before stepping onto the zip platform. You’ll zip across the entire river in less than a minute. Once on the south shore tower, you’ll catch the return zip back to your starting point. The round-trip takes approximately 80 seconds, so you may want to go more than once. Extreme Adventure day passes, which include all RIVERSPORT Adventure attractions, are $50; a one-time zip pass is $20. Or get the Extreme Adventure season pass, good through the end of the year, for $100.
The RIVERSPORT Adventure pass, $35 for the day or $85 for the season, gives you access to all the other fun and exciting amenities at the Boathouse District, include the Rumble Drop free-fall experience from the top of the SandRidge Sky Trail. Feel the exhilaration of one and a half seconds of pure free fall before the ride mechanism engages to slow your descent. You’ll be on the ground in three seconds. Or, for another way down, hop on the Sky Slide, the tallest dry slide in America, and reach speeds up to 22 mph. Stay and play on the SandRidge Sky Trail’s six levels of adventure elements, including rope bridges and balance beams.
Younger kids will enjoy the bouncing and climbing amenities in the Youth Zone, which features a mini version of the SandRidge Sky Trail, the Cloud Bounce inflatable bounce pillow, the Adventure Climb, and the Extreme Air Jumper.
Cool off in the summer heat by getting on the water to kayak or stand up paddle board, also known as SUP. Get the perspective of walking on water as you gaze at the horizon while standing on your paddle board. Or sit back and relax as you leisurely paddle a kayak up the river and back. Both activities are great for families.
