Summer Fun

We are getting excited for summer, and I'm busy planning some summer activities to keep us busy and away from the TV and electronics. Today I'll feature some Season Pass information for the Norman, Oklahoma area, along with a few from the metro.

1. Andy Alligator's Water Park. Season passes are $84.99 per person. Season pass holders also receive a 10% discount on all food & beverage, lockers, retail, cabanas and birthday parties. They've even got a fabulous gluten-free pizza that I enjoyed last summer and can't wait to indulge in this summer!

The $4.2 million-dollar park features a variety of attractions including a lazy river, double tube slide, the first four-lane mat racer in Oklahoma, an 800-gallon bucket of water that will be regularly dumped on kids. (from the Moore Daily)

2. Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. A family membership is $45 and includes complimentary admission for two adults and children (or grandchildren) in the family under age 18. (Note: at this writing, their website is down, but I assume pricing is similar to what it was in 2014.)

From their website: Through world-class exhibits, educational programming for children and adults, public programs, special exhibitions and outreach, the museum brings Oklahoma to the world, and the world to Oklahoma, in a manner that is entertaining and accessible for visitors of all ages and all walks of life.

3. Oklahoma City Zoo. Deal alert: ZooFriends and Mathis Brothers have partnered once again to offer you the biggest discount of the year on ZooFriends memberships! Purchase or renew a membership in May at Mathis Brothers and take advantage of this terrific money-saving opportunity & receive a free gift while supplies last.

 Wildcard Membership: $35
Family Membership: $49
Family Plus Membership: $80

This special offer will only be available at Mathis Brothers located at 3434 W. Reno from May 1-31. Questions? Please call 405-425-0618

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is a zoo and botanical garden located in Oklahoma City's Adventure District in northeast Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The zoo covers 119 acres and is home to more than 1,800 animals. (from Wikipedia)

4. Science Museum Oklahoma. A Silver membership is $125 and is shared by 6 people- great to split between families. You can even add two additional people on the pass for $30 each.

You can also upgrade your membership to an Oklahoma Museum Network Affiliate Membership for $40 and get general admission for any 5 people to the OMN Partner museums: Science Museum Oklahoma, Jasmine Moran Childrens Museum: Seminole, Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse: Enid, Museum of the Great Plains: Lawton.

Note: Old schoolies like me still call this the Omniplex.

From their website: Science Museum Oklahoma is a hands on learning environment for families and general science enthusiasts.

5. Earlywine Family Aquatic Center. Season passes for a family of 4 is $180, and $35 for each additional family member.

From their website: Earlywine Family Aquatic Center integrates a beach-like pool entry with the excitement of high-energy water toys, super tube slides, swimming lanes and twelve gently bubbling geysers.

6. Star Skate. A summer pass is $5 and entitles you to skate for only $3 at their skate sessions. During the summer they have afternoon sessions on Thursdays and Fridays.

7. Kids Bowl Free at Sooner Bowling Center. By signing up, your kids can bowl 2 games free all summer long, M-F. The hours for the program were 9 am - noon last year. Shoe rental is not included and is $3. You can also purchase a Family season pass, but I recommend waiting to do it- they will send you a coupon code to get 10% off. I purchased a pass for my husband and I for just $22.45 so that we can bowl 2 games per day with the kiddos. Last year we purchased bowling shoes from Amazon for around $25 each since we planned on going so much. We averaged at least 3 times per week and by the end of the summer, we were all significantly better bowlers. Such a great program!
