Sandridge Sky Trail Set To Open On Oklahoma River

Friday, March 1st 2013, 5:31 pm

The new place to be this summer may be down by the river. The Sandridge Sky Trail, the first of several new attractions, opens March 9.

The Sky Trail is the tallest adventure course in the world: 80 feet tall. And it can no doubt be intimidating at first. But as you get more comfortable and confident in the harness that is always attached, you work your way up and through the increasingly difficult course.

"This is the first stage of the whole project, and from the top we are going to have a zip line that goes across the river and back," said Mike Knopp, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Boathouse Foundation.

Also off the top of the Sky Trial, opening Memorial Day, will be a free fall into a landing pad on one side and the tallest slide in America off the other.

For those who are shorter to the ground, or just like to keep their feet on it, a nearby youth zone offers a smaller version of the sky trail, a mini zip line and a huge cloud bounce for any age.

"We're going to have one of the premier outdoor adventure venues in the country when we're said and done so this is just another big step in that process," said Knopp

It offers a chance to step outside your comfort zone for a unique adreline rush typically not found in Oklahoma.

Special opening pricing for SandRidge Sky Trail is $15 adults, $10 youth 4-12. Blue Cross Blue Shield Youth Zone is $10 ages 4+. Both open March 9 and are part of RIVERSPORT Adventures, running Sat. 10 am. - 8 p.m. & Sun 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Sky Slide & Base Jump coming Memorial day. 

The zip line will be ready later this summer.
