You're a Family-Oriented Extremologist!

Always the first to cross the finish line, your family craves the energy and flash of an active lifestyle. Jet setters at heart, you leave the other families on the block wondering, “Where do they get the energy?” You’re always on the go, and wouldn’t want it any other way. Your family’s adventurous spirit and go-getter attitude leads you to the latest trends and newest hot spots. Let Oklahoma show you the lively and energetic experience your family has come to expect.

Shine up your racing boots, strap on your helmets and head on over to the Pole Position Raceway of Oklahoma City. With 85,000 sq ft of heart-pounding racing action and karts that can reach speeds up to 45 mph, Pole Position Raceway is home to some of the fastest rental karts in the U.S. Let siblings battle it out on the track or challenge your kids to a race and let your family’s competitive spirit soar. Looking for a great one stop shop for family fun? Try Incredible Pizza of Tulsa and enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring 16 types of pizza, bumper cars, mini-golf and over 100 video, interactive and action games. From Skeeball to go-karts, Incredible Pizza will have your family hopping from one activity to the next. 

Do you have future astronauts in your family, or have you always wanted to jet off to space yourself? Stop by the Stafford Air & Space Museum of Weatherford and bring the dream of faraway stars alive as you view actual flown in space artifacts from the Shuttle program, a Gemini flight suit, space food and aircraft including a Russian MiG21R and an F16. Don’t miss the opportunity to blast through the clouds at the museum’s two flight simulations labs. Since your family excels at learning new things and pushing their mental limits, Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City will be an experience you won’t soon forget. Immerse yourself with endless fun and activity with over eight acres of hands-on science displays and experiences. Every family member will find something to tickle their brain’s fancy, whether a stunning journey through the stars at the Science Museum’s planetarium or an intense voyage of the senses at the Dome Theater, complete with a 70-foot screen that surrounds the audience.      

Satisfy your family’s need for an active, up close and personal experience at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. Feed the stingrays or let the kids pet small sharks at the aquarium’s popular touch tanks. Watch as their eyes become wide with excitement as large bull sharks swim around them while in the underwater viewing tunnel. Try your hand at the 12,000 square foot outdoor maze at Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum of Seminole, or let the kids traverse the 16 foot tall climbing maze. With rotating science exhibits and educational activities, this museum will test your family’s brain power and give the kids a unique and unforgettable experience. If your kids are still aching for activity, hop over to Enid for Leonardo’s Children's Museum & Adventure Quest. Brimming with hands-on fun for children of all ages, Leonardo’s invites your kids to build a sand castle, create an artistic masterpiece, zoom down a massive slide or get lost in a three story outdoor castle. 

Want to ditch the education and sign your family up for some sports-oriented fun? Keep it cool and show off your skating skills at the Arctic Edge Ice Arena in Edmond. Skate circles around the competition and try to keep your balance! As an Extremologist family, you can’t stand to be cooped up and confined, so if your family is ready to work out some aggression after a long car ride, stop at Maximum Dodgeball of Del City and dodge, duck and dive your way to a great time.  If you’re ready to get off the court and enjoy the comfort of the stands, check out a Thunder game in Oklahoma City. Cheer for the home team, enjoy a hot dog and watch as professional basketball players knock down shots. Your family will love the roar of the crowd and the excitement of each shot made. 

Does your family still want that extra shot of adrenaline? Have your sharpshooting skills at the ready and enjoy a spirited game of laser tag at Laser Quest of Oklahoma City or Laser Quest Tulsa. Get lost in this 10,000 square foot black light maze, dive around corners and take out the competition. This multi-level arena features specialty lighting, fog and heart-pounding music. Or, try Laser Expedition of Yukon, Oklahoma’s only indoor and outdoor laser tag complex. Without a doubt, these laser tag arenas will leave you and your family feeling energized.
