Frontier City Theme Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Down on Main Street Bond ran into Frontier City's Marshall who wanted to make sure we weren't troublemakers and understood that he kept a close eye on his town.

Bond ended up being deputized as the Marshall needed a little help with all of the people that were set to visit his city that day.

Frontier City's Mayor was trampled to death a few days before by a herd of pigs so the Marshall had to go find a temporary replacement.  So a group of Frontier City citizens were called before the crowd and as a result of who could give the best pig call a new mayor was chosen. 

After the stars and stripes were raised and the pledge given Frontier City's new Mayor gave the order and the rope was dropped letting everyone into the park for a day of fun.

By the time the rope was dropped we were already into Frontier City and headed for the Wild Kitty coaster.  You see Bond, Chris and I were there wearing coaster shirts as usual and a park employee came up and asked if we were enthusiasts.  The person was Michael Schwitek who is Frontier City's Operations Manager.  It turns out he's also a coaster enthusiast so we talked about parks and trips and in the conversation I asked about getting on Wild Kitty as you have to have a kid to ride it and unfortunately Bond is too big.  He said "Sure I'll get you on it" and a few minutes later we were getting locked into the coaster for our first ride of the day.

Here's Bond, myself and Chris getting ready for our Wild Kitty ride.  This is actually a new coaster this year.  It seems that the old Wild Kitty reached the end of its lifespan and needed to be replaced so CNL who also owns Elitch Gardens in Denver just moved their slightly longer Alan Herschell "Big Dipper" model coaster to Oklahoma.  Besides being a little bit longer than the old one it is a little bit taller resulting in a low clearance at the top of the lift (there is a roof over it) so we were instructed to keep our arms down for the ride.  These Herschell kiddy coasters might not be the most intense but they are really fun and pack a punch.
