Frontier City Expands Water Area with the Opening of Gully Washer Slides

New for 2017, the impressive Gully Washer body slides have opened to guests within Frontier City, located in Oklahoma City, OK.  The park just recently started adding water-park style attractions to their lineup of offerings.  The Gully Washer slide tower is another big step toward eventually giving guests a full water park experience, should the park desire that.

The trio of slides has gone up adjacent to the Wild West Water Works, a giant interactive play area that opened at Frontier City in 2012.  The structure features several slides of its own, along with dozens of interactive features.  Just the structure alone helps create a mini-water park experience, but now even that has grown.

These photos, taken by the park for social media, show off the green, purple and orange body slides as they twist their way down from a height of 66 feet.  Gully Washer certain appears to give a more thrilling experience than can be found in the Wild West Water Works!  I also enjoy how the runout area for the slides is actually pointed inward toward the slide tower, it's not often that you see water slides positioned in that way.

Between the three paths of Gully Washer there is a total of 1,249 feet of slide, each path is unique but all contain sudden drops, plenty of twists and a high speed finish.  Riders only need to be 48 inches tall to experience the new ride.

This was probably the "new for 2017" addition I was most looking forward to. I'm not super in to water parks, but I had a blast in the Wild Water Works area last time I went to Frontier City, and I love speed slides! I heard the green is the fastest slide! Frontier City has made some pretty awesome investments in these past couple years! In 2012 they added Wild West Water Works, in 2013 they added in that new kiddie coaster, in 2014 they added some Larson Flyers (amazing ones might I add), in 2015 they added a Larson Loop, in 2016 they added Gunslinger, which really livened up that back area in the park, and now they added this. Frontier City is such a wonderful park!
