Does anyone know where the Muskogee waterpark is? I have heard it is pretty fun and inexpensive as well.

Does anyone remember the Blue Whale? It's all re-done and stuff but I do remember swimming in that rust bucket as a kid. Now I look back and wonder how we all aren't dead. LOL Lots of snakes and stuff there. I don't think they even let you swim there anymore.

It's no surprise to me that Big Splash, and the corrupt relationship the Tulsa County Fair Board has with the Murphy's, are still in business. Especially after the Murphy's admitted knowledge of faulty equipment which caused one of their water rides to break.
Yet Bell's was a 50+ year tennant, paid the most rent and fees, was still a viable business, and was kicked to the curb like a red headed stepchild...all for a parking lot. Obsurd!
With Karen Keith as the new County Commissioner, I hope she cleans house. But for me, the damage has already been done. I've boycotted the Fair & Expo Square for life. I'll gladly spend my hard earned money elsewhere.
Just like you I have also boycotted the Tulsa State fair. I used to go every year. I wonder how many other have too?

cuz back when we was kids they let life lessons teach and toughen us up. I remember them steel bar jungle gyms and well it taught you to be coordinated and not bust your face on the bars.

Well, for one thing, once you have been to the Tulsa State Fair, you have seen it all. It is literally the same thing over and over again. I can only take so many pineapple whips and yard sticks. lol

The Murphys are great Tulsans as well as great people! Its the City of Tulsa ( mainly county officials) who seem to wanna get their hands on someone elses hard earned business. An blame the city, for not having fun filled attractions, not the Murphy family!

Invited by an employee to "no rules" employee party in 1992 at age of 14. Kids were walking up slide, not stairs, carrying tubes over head while kids were coming down slide with tubes at the same time. I was accidently knocked off, while walking up the middle slide( 2nd curve from top ), by five boys. They were coming down as a group, two double tubes and a single tube, hanging on to each others tubes. I stepped to the side but I was no match for that. Paralyzed from waist down for twenty years this summer. On a side note I almost drowned there a couple of years later wearing a life jacket stuck inside a tube in the wave pool. My sister accidently flipped me over and I couldn't get out. Pool was overcrowded on American airlines day. It took them awhile to realize it was a paraplegic who couldn't get out and then awhile to get through the crowd. I didn't wait for them. I got to the handles at the back, waves were still going, and held on taking a breath between waves. What can I say I'm a fish out of water, I swim better now paralyzed than I ever did before. I would have been fine with just the tube big splash made me wear the life jacket that got me stuck in the tube. Haven't benn back in many years.
