New Water Slide Tower Announced for Frontier City in 2017

Frontier City, located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has announced a new water slide tower named Gully Washer for the park's 2017 season.

The new body slides will be located adjacent to the existing Wild West Water Works play structure, which opened in 2012 and was the theme park's first dedicated water play area.  The 2017 addition will add some thrill to the area with 3 new twisting, high speed body slides.

Seen in the background of the concept art above, Gully Washer will start on a 66 foot tall tower overlooking the area.  Riders will travel down one of three separate body slides, in total the slides will stretch 1,249 feet.  Each of the fully enclosed slides will feature "back-to-back turns, thrilling dips, and tight 360° curves" on the path downward.  The slides will have a 48 inch height requirement.

The new slides, along with Wild West Water Works, are included with a general admission ticket to Frontier City.  The park plans to have the expansion complete in time for the water area's May 13th opening.
