Frontier City is an amusement park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. It has been operating since 1958 and is one of three Six Flags parks that are not currently branded as a Six Flags park. The other two are La Ronde and Great Escape.


Frontier City opened in 1958.

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 owned by Six Flags until 2007, when Frontier City and White Water Bay were sold, along with Six Flags Elitch Gardens, Six Flags Darien Lake, and other various Six Flags waterparks. This was an effort to reduce Six Flags' debt, which was in the billions.[3] The Six Flags prefix and logo were removed from Elitch Gardens and Darien Lake. Frontier City and White Water Bay were never branded as Six Flags parks.

In 2008, a Vekoma family suspended coaster, Steel Lasso, was added to celebrate the park's 50th anniversary.[4]

On May 22, 2018, it was announced that Six Flags had repurchased the park's operating lease, along with four other former Six Flags properties.[5]
