In 1972, when most other 7-year-olds were building their baseball-card and bottle-cap collections, Jay Villemarette began collecting skulls. His lifetime hobby evolved into a full-time vocation in 1990 after he opened Skulls Unlimited, a one-of-a-kind bone-replica shop that earned the limelight on popular TV shows such as Dirty Jobs and Ripley's Believe It or Not!. By 2010, Jay's widespread success led him to establish the Museum of Osteology, which currently houses the largest privately held collection of osteological specimens in the world, with more than 300 skeletons and, most importantly, zero zombie sightings to date.

Education abounds throughout the 7,000-square-foot space as visitors investigate rare species, skulls, and skeletons from all corners of the world. The form and function of the skeletal system weave a common thread through each of the museum's exhibits, which showcase topics such as adaptation, locomotion, and specific categories of animals, including marsupials, birds, and reptiles. After exploring displays and begging skeletons for their teeth-whitening regimen, interim osteologists can visit the gift shop, where souvenirs, toys, and replicas of museum models are available to start personal collections.

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art still has that new art museum luster since construction finished on the elegant, 110,000-square -oot facility in 2002. Since then, the downtown museum has become synonymous with OKC’s burgeoning art scene. The museum is anchored by its world-class collection of brightly colored, 3D glasswork from artist Dale Chihuly, including his 55-foot Eleanor Blake Kirkpatrick Memorial Tower, located in the atrium.

An on-site movie theater shows independent, international, and classic films. After exploring the museum or taking in a film, visitors can have lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch at the Museum Cafe. The restaurant features an extensive wine list, and patio tables are available in warm seasons.

In 2000, the city of Pauls Valley hosted VISION 2010, a series of meetings where locals proposed goals they had for the next 10 years. When it came to creating new city attractions, the VISION 2010 turned to local toy designer and collector Kevin Stark. Five years later, one October 15, 2005, the Toy and Action Figure Museum welcomed its first visitors. Inside, more than 13,000 collectibles??from Incredible Hulks and Millennium Falcons to Wonder Womans and Simpsons toys??celebrate the art of the action figure.

For devotees of the Dark Knight, meanwhile, the "Batcave" traces the evolution of Batman figures, from Tim Burton's moody caped crusader to Christopher Nolan's even moodier caped crusader. Over in the playroom, youngsters can even dive deeper into make-believe by playing with toys and dressing up in a handful of costumes. Besides action figures, the museum houses The Oklahoma Cartoonist Collection, a retrospective of drawings by notable state artists such as Zack Mosley and Carole Bender.

While Trail of Fear is now Oklahoma's largest haunted attraction, Hauntworld.com reveals that the original format was a small, roadside hay maze operated by a father and son in 1998. Today, a three-story pyramid looms above the theme park's frightful environs and prowling actors. Creators Bob Wright Sr. and Bob Wright Jr. supervise a staff of more than 100—a vast increase from their first crew of approximately 15 people and a few rusty table fans—as they guide visitors through four nightmarish worlds. Though the majority of these helpers return to the job each season with fiendish devotion, their strategies for harvesting screams evolve every year to surprise even the most loyal fans.

The Voodoo Bayou has proven to be Trail of Fear's most intense experience, where ghastly creatures dart from their swampland dens to spook trespassers and ask directions to the nearest zombie hoedown. Elsewhere, a maniacal ringmaster oversees the disorienting maze and murderous clowns of Cirque de Morte, and malformed test subjects rise from The Experiment's excavation and lab sites. Laughter and gasps join the chorus of screams at the Crispy Family Carnival, where performers inject dark humor into their classic sideshow acts, which can be viewed at the Thunderbird Trail of Fear.

On the Halloween Midway, Boo House BBQ supplies fuel for brave souls in the form of burgers and brisket. Fairground games embrace macabre twists; past activities include a severed-head toss and live-zombie target practice. For younger children, Pumpkin Junction entertains with scary stories and magic tricks on select nights. A portion of Trail of Fear's proceeds go to benefit a specific charity every year, contributing thousands of dollars to community causes.

The exotic animals at Tiger Safari have a more important role than just posing for people; they educate the public on conservation efforts. All of the park’s programs serve to educate others about the conservation needs of Earth’s wildlife in an effort to safeguard the planet’s ecosystems and the critters that live within them. With help from the park’s caretakers, lemurs, tigers, pythons, foxes, and monkeys venture to homes and picnics to celebrate birthday parties, corporate events, or graduation parties, all while trained staffers share facts about the animals’ diet and ecosystem. During safaris and camping excursions, groups of children journey through the park to catch glimpses of kangaroos, tortoises, crocodiles, and dads observed without their shirts tucked in.
