Andy Alligator’s Breaks Ground on New Waterpark
By Tourism Industry Partner
NORMAN, Okla – Norman, Oklahoma-based Andy Alligator’s Fun Park announces plans to build Oklahoma’s newest family waterpark, Andy Alligator’s Waterpark. The park, set to open in May, 2012 will be located at I-35 and Indian Hills Road between Norman and Moore.
Andy Alligator’s Waterpark, owned by Norman business owners Russell and Robbie Allison, will provide more than four acres of aquatic family fun. The park will feature Oklahoma’s largest children’s aquatic play structure along with a 700-foot lazy river. The facility will be anchored by a 45-foot slide complex featuring a 400-foot tube slide and the state’s first four-lane mat racer. A full array of food options will be available along with rental cabanas featuring upscale furnishings. The park will operate seasonally with approximately 100 days of operation creating 60 additional employment opportunities for the community.
“Our family has been researching and planning this project for the last year. It was a heavily guarded secret and today we begin to share with our surrounding communities the next level in family fun,” said Allison.
The project’s master planner and aquatic engineer is Brannon Corporation of Tyler, Texas, a national design firm that specializes in waterpark facilities. The general contractor and builder is Aztec Building Systems of Norman with financing provided by First Bank & Trust Co. of Norman, Okla.
Andy Alligator’s Fun Park, owned by Norman business owners Russell and Robbie Allison, features outdoor activities as well as indoor games, party rooms and a Café & Pizzeria. The 8-acre facility offers go-carts, batting cages, water wars, bumper boats, 18 holes of miniature golf and a climbing mountain. The park is anchored by an 11,000-square-foot building with a huge arcade and redemption games, bumper cars, miniature bowling and private party rooms available for corporate parties, birthday parties and meetings. Located at I-35 and Indian Hills Road in Norman, the park allows for easy access from Norman, Moore and south Oklahoma City. For more information visit andyalligators.com or call (405) 206-1725.
