Lokomotion Family Fun Center paves the way for friendly competition and family fun in a multi-attraction complex filled with arcade games, mini golf, laser tag, go-karts, and bumper boats. Feed fistfuls of tokens ($0.25 value each) into a multitude of games to shoot hoops, smack air-hockey pucks, and recklessly race virtual cars without being grounded for hitting the neighbors' mailbox. Take aim at sibling rivalries during black-light laser-tag games or spray down peers in the bumper-boat pool. Thirty-six mini golf holes border an Illinois River tributary, setting a beautiful scene to knock grandma off the top of the family standings. Four different go-kart tracks separate racers by age with single-seat pro-track cars for licensed drivers and double-seated family-track cars that liberate backseat drivers.
Imagine a tropical beach plopped down in the middle of Muskogee, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect at River Country Family Water Park. The azure waters of the Caribbean come to Oklahoma at this wet and wild adventure park, where guests can zip down twisting water slides or lounge in the gentle currents of a lazy river. There's plenty of sand to go with that water, too; kids can play on the tugboat beach while adults square off in games of volleyball or feast on sand-dipped nachos with that perfect crunch.

When Buddy and Miranda Grimes opened Hog Wild Family Fun Center on August 16, 2009, it initially hosted 32 arcade games and a cozy pizzeria. In less than a year, however, the center had already grown beyond its 4,000 square feet. Now housed in a 25,000-square-foot facility, Hog Wild hosts more than 100 arcade and redemption games, from skeeball to Terminator: Salvation, where players help Arnold Schwarzenegger search scripts for a new career-defining role. With enough tickets, avid players can even net prizes such as basketballs and giant stuffed Smurf dolls.
The arcade aside, Hog Wild also rolls out other fun-center staples, from five inflatables to a pirate-themed mini-golf course aglow in black lights. A massive laser-tag arena with laser maze and cozy bumper-car zone round out Hog Wild, where visitors can reenergize in between activities with snacks such as chicken fingers and frozen lemonade.
Thanks to The Gauntlet, butterflies fill visitors' stomachs long before they even enter Magic Springs and Crystal Falls Water and Theme Park. The coaster looms high over the parking lot—forming a bright yellow web out of some 2,200 feet of steel track. Then, shrieks echo as riders plunge down a 110-foot drop and rocket through five inverted loops before finally planting their feet back on solid ground. And that's just the beginning.
Sprawling across the grounds are dozens of other attractions that cater to all levels of thrill-seeker. While the X-Coaster dangles riders and inspires avant-garde hair styles with its slowed-down loop, the family-friendly Big Bad John takes others on a runaway train ride through the forest. Elsewhere, a kiddie airplane ride and a carousel delight tiny visitors, and everyone can break to eat at the Lakeside Ice Cream Parlor.
