Dad is always there when you need him—and June is the perfect chance to show him how much you enjoy spending time together. In honor of Father’s Day, here are our picks for the coolest places to hang out, have fun and make memories with your family’s resident superhero.
Rocktown Climbing Gym
200 S.E. 4th Street, Oklahoma City
Why we love it: If dad is an adventure lover, you can’t have any more fun than scaling a 90 foot wall. With orientation courses, rental equipment and reasonable rates, this former grain elevator-turned-climbing gym located just south of Bricktown will have dad feeling like Spider-Man in no time. The fun isn’t limited just to dad, either! Rocktown caters to the entire family and welcomes kids of all ages to learn basic climbing techniques in a safe and secure environment. (Plus, for an added thrill and chill, be sure to ask about ice climbing in the winter!)
DodgeCity Paintball and Outdoor Laser Tag of OKC
16425 N.W. 150th Street, Piedmont
Why we love it: Located only a short drive from the metro, DodgeCity Paintball offers outdoor paintball fun on a large, 10-course field or try your hand at laser tag if getting messy isn’t on the agenda. One low price gets you two hours of play time on the courses—and did we mention unlimited paintballs? And with Jr. Paintball available for kids ages five and older, it can truly be a family affair. Plus, bring your own charcoal and favorite foods to cook on the provided grills.
SandRidge Sky Trail & Sky Zip
725 N. Lincoln, Oklahoma City
Why we love it: Give dad an adrenaline rush by taking him to the top of the tallest adventure course in the world! The SandRidge Sky Trail includes an 80-foot Rumble Drop free fall experience, a 72-foot high-speed Sky Slide and more. The newly-opened Sky Zip will let dad (and the kids!) take a thrilling ride on a 700-foot zip line spanning the Oklahoma River and back. Plus, try stand-up paddle boarding, dragon boating or kayaking. You can play all day for one price—so dad can try out being Superman with all the high-flying adventure he can stuff into one day. [Editor’s note: Save $5 on an Adventure Day Pass for up to 4 people with our Kids Pass coupon.]
Orr Family Farm
14400 S. Western Avenue, Oklahoma City
Why we love it: One of Oklahoma’s top agricultural entertainment venues, the Orr Family Farm offers dad a chance to enjoy a ride on the four lane zip line, pan for gemstones, feed and pet the animals in the farm’s barn and more. Plus, dad can take a ride on a replica of the historic Jupiter train, milk a fiberglass cow, play a game of giant checkers or try out his superpowers on the giant jumping pillows. When he needs to catch his breath, bring your fishing supplies and cast a line in the farm’s Hidden Lake. Plus, visit on Saturday, June 14 and dad receives free admission for the annual Father’s Day Fiesta.
