Back to School Bash!

Posted by Andy Alligator's on 08/03/2017

The school year is quickly approaching. Between back-to-school shopping, school orientation and other preparations it can be easy to race through the last few weeks of summer vacation. At Andy Alligator’s we want to help you make lasting family memories before school is back in session at the end of August.

Treat your kids to one last family fun day during our Back to School Bash. Spend the last three days of summer at Andy Alligator's before Norman Public Schools begin on August 17th. From August 14th-16th admission to the water park is only $12! Whether you want to grab a tube and relax in the Paradise River or challenge your friends to a drag race on our 4 lane mat racer slide towering 45’ into the air. The Riptide Racer is  the only one of its kind in Oklahoma.

With a little planning, you can make back to school simple and leave time for family fun before the school year begins. Here are a few of our tips to make the transition easier for both you and your kids:

  • Begin a new routine in advance: A few weeks before school starts move bedtime back to an earlier time. This helps ease into the school-year schedule and makes the adjustment much easier – especially with young kids.
  • Read with your kids: Make a point to read with your kids on a daily basis during the last few weeks of summer break. It will help prepare them for doing homework once the school year begins.
  • Get organized: Create a family event calendar to help you keep track of everyone’s busy and ever-changing schedules. Avoid last minute panic by going through school packets and information before they are due. Don’t forget to write all important dates on your calendar!

With these tips you’ll have plenty of time to attend our Back to School Bash and be prepared for a stress free transition from summer to fall. 

Christmas in July

Posted by Andy Alligator's on 07/14/2017

At Andy Alligator’s we love to give back! That’s why we’re celebrating Christmas in July at both the Fun Park and the Water Park. On Thursday, July 20th we are collecting new unwrapped toys that will be donated to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Toys are donated to children in the community as a message of hope during the holidays. But, why wait for Christmas? We wanted to get a head start during Christmas in July!

As an incentive for donating, guests will receive a free Water Park admission or Fun Park Ultimate Fun Pass with the purchase of one at regular price.

A Fun Park Ultimate Fun Pass includes all day access to go-karts, climbing wall, frog hopper, bumper cars, miniature golf, and the Kidz Zone plus one round of laser tag. Little ones will love the three levels of soft-play fun in the Kidz Zone including a two-story slide and climbing tunnels. Or, if you have a need for speed, buckle up and race your family on the Speedway Go-Karts.

You can also opt for a splashing good time at Oklahoma’s newest family waterpark experience. Andy Alligator’s Water Park features more than four acres of aquatic family fun complete with a lazy river. For the ultimate play adventure head over to Cowabunga Cove with 3 body slides and more than 100 ways to get soaked!

With so many options Andy Alligator’s is the perfect place to escape the Norman summer heat. Just don’t forget to bring your toy to donate – so you can have fun while supporting Toys for Tot and all the great things that they do for our local community and throughout the country.

Merry Christmas in July!

Andy Alligator's Solution to Lazy Days

Posted by Andy Alligator's on 05/09/2017

It’s no secret that kids today are more into technology than ever before. Television, smart phones and tablets offer so much these days, it’s hard to take your eyes off them. Therefore, we need to encourage our children to participate in outdoor recreation. Outdoor activities increase fitness levels and build healthy, active bodies. Being outside also raises levels of Vitamin D which helps prevent health issues in children down the road.

Outdoor recreation helps with emotional development and social skills. Interacting with other children is very important in a child’s neurological development. It can also help against childhood obesity, which is a growing problem in the United States.

At Andy Alligator’s we can help your kids get outside and be active! Summer is fast approaching and our Fun Park attractions are the perfect place for outdoor recreation that the entire family can enjoy! Gator Golf is the perfect way to stay on your feet and enjoy the outdoors. You can “Putt like a pro” on our 18-hole course and have a chance to win a FREE game with a skill-shot at the end. Our outdoor climbing wall, batting cages and Water Park are just another way to add to a fun day of outdoor activities!

Always remember to pack the sunscreen, even on cloudy days! Drinking lots of water and fluids with electrolytes will keep you hydrated on a sizzling summer day. The Fun Park is open 7 Days a week and the 2017 Water Park season starts May 13th
