Frontier City is an amusement park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. It has been operating since 1958.

History

On June 13, 1998, an F2 tornado caused minor damage to the park, costing $3 million. Most of the rides were not damaged, but inspectors found out that the building facades were damaged and had to be replaced. Frontier City was set to reopen on June 17, but was postponed until the following day as inspectors found a cracked reservoir for one of the park's water rides. After five days of being closed, the park reopened on June 18, 1998.[1][2]

The park was formerly owned by Six Flags. On May 22, 2018, however, it was announced that Six Flags had repurchased the park's operating lease along with four other former Six Flags properties, including Darien Lake in New York.[3]
