I am starting to plan my 2007 vacation, which will be centered around Oklahoma City, OK. I am definately planning on SFOT, and possibly Frontier City, but was wondering about the other parks "in the area" IE within a 6hr drive. There aren't many Trip Reports on these parks, so I'm asking. I prefer steel coasters, and love flat rides. I usually travel as cheap as possible and will have a cedar fair pass.
Silver Dollar City/Celebration City
Magic Springs/Crystal Falls
Worlds of Fun
SFFT/Sea World (a little far, but an option. My sister would love it if she can come.)
Any thoughts, especially from those who have been to 2 or 3 of them?

I highly suggest SFFT, Sea World and Schlitterbahn. SFFT is perhaps the best SF out there, I actually enjoyed SWSA more then SWO and Schlitterbahn is by far the best waterpark in the country. If you can I suggest two days at the Bahn, one at SFFT and one at Sea World.

I've been to all of them bar Sea World Texas.
Silver Dollar City/Celebration City is your best bet without question. SDC has two *stunning* steel coasters in Powder Keg and Wildfire, and a very good mine train. Celebration City can be hit in a few hours but allow a day and a half to appreciate Silver Dollar City properly.
My trip reports from all of the above parks can be found here -

Oh, you said South Central USA, never mind.

A .44? What are you talking about.
In THE "South Central" you would be terribly out gunned if all you had was a .44.

Might not have to plan on getting Frontier City coasterb. Has anyone heard of an offer for it yet?
