After building a successful inflatable-delivery business, the family that owns and operates Dawn to Dusk Inflatables decided to open two locations where their air-filled attractions remained permanently fixed to the ground—Bouncin Craze and Bouncin Craze II. There, kids experience the thrill of the bounce on boat-, slide-, and superhero-shaped inflatables that staffers regularly sanitize to prevent the spread of germs. While kids challenge gravity and explore the game room, parents access free WiFi and nosh on items from the snack bar, or brush up on their air hockey at the complimentary tables.
Families celebrate birthdays or their toddler’s first successful juggling routine within the centers' private party rooms, which can be decorated with balloons that are conveniently available in-house. The Oklahoma City location's Art in Craze also allows families to create masterpieces together using nontoxic paint, stamps, and play-doh.
At Remington Park Racing Casino, thoroughbreds gallop circuits around the track as visitors cheer for their favorite steed from a spacious brick plaza or the five-tiered clubhouse dining room. The clubhouse’s wait staff makes the rounds with platters of tender steaks, seafood, and pasta, or visitors can remove their dress halters and nosh at more casual eateries such as the Wild Rush Bar or Jackpot Pizza. The onsite casino keeps gamblers entertained between races, and a balcony overhead spills out live music Thursday–Sunday.
A renowned speaker and family entertainer, Robin Ray Hocker––known by his professional clowning name, Chester––opened Chester's Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze in 2001 as a means of engaging kids in fun-filled outdoor activities. Snuggled amidst 25 verdant acres, his farm keeps visitors entertained throughout the year via a host of seasonal activities, hosting private picnics and cookouts in summer. As autumn unfurls, the farm's annual pumpkin patch returns to welcome families for fall-themed activities including a giant slide, pumpkin bowling, and a petting zoo. Groups can also put their navigational skills to the test in the farm’s three-acre Mystery Maze, meandering through spooky twists and turns made all the more tricky by a chance encounter with a ghostly pioneer or lost census taker. Afterward, guests can quiet chattering teeth by the warm glow of a bonfire, and outside picnic areas facilitate al fresco feeding frenzies throughout the day.
Ghouls, ghosts, and other blood-curdling creatures swarm to the Bricktown Haunted Warehouse to terrify locals in a 20,000-square-foot haunt. The site was once home to the Oklahoma Casket Company, but now houses a pitch-black labyrinth filled with unseen spooks around every twist and turn. In order to make it out alive, guests must find the finish using nothing more than a glow stick to light their way, hoping against hope that it will be enough to scare off monsters or at least make them dance long enough to make an escape.
