ANDY ALLIGATOR’S ANNOUNCES $1.3 MILLION EXPANSION PROJECT

NORMAN, Okla – Andy Alligator’s Fun Park announces an 8,000-square-foot building expansion. The $1.3 million project will enhance all parts of the Fun Park, creating a greater year-round atmosphere for family entertainment in central Oklahoma.

Slated to begin in July, the project features the construction of three new birthday party/event rooms, a centralized birthday party and event check-in area, an expanded dining area, a kitchen upgrade with a larger menu, and enhanced operations offices.

The building expansion will also provide space for an indoor rock wall, a multilevel family-themed laser attraction, and added arcade games. As part of the project, the fun park will also add a new rookie go-kart track for younger drivers.

“Our goal was to take recommendations from our guests and enhance areas of the park they requested. We typically sell out on birthday parties during peak periods and this additional space will allow us to serve more guests,” said Andy Alligator’s General Manager Kyle Allison. “The expansion also provides a number of new features that demonstrate our commitment to being the number one location for family entertainment in Oklahoma.”

The Fun Park expansion is projected to be complete by end of year.

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.

Competition is on it would seem. Now to see if both companies can survive or if one is going to fall flat on their faces.

Even if one failed, the other could probably buy it out and just expand.

Hopefully both can survive. I wonder if Skybox Golf is the same way here.

There's not a ton of overlap, aside from video games. I always wondered if that was a conscious effort. Laser tag and AA will be direct overlap.

Wish half of the dough was going to the water park side. They need to add a couple more larger rides to justify their prices

I'm not really sure it is a competition. I see it more as two venues hoping to draw people to the same area and feed off of each other. It's kind of like all of the furniture stores congregating in the same area in OKC.

Yeah, which is what I hope is the case. A nice little "adventure" or amusement area would be nice without having to track up through the City.

It looks like they are installing one of those bungee things, huge towers up right now.

Has anyone asked or heard of the potential for new rides at the water park? They have not added anything since opening and I think that combined with the Moore Station has led to seeing 5-10 kids in line at their only two bigger rides.
