Construction is under way on two water attractions totaling about $5.8 million in the metro area.

In Norman, Andy Alligator's is building a water park at Interstate 35 and Indian Hills Road, adjacent to its fun park. The $4.5 million attraction will feature a lazy river, a shaded toddler splash zone, four-lane mat racer slide, double tube slide, private cabanas and more.

Parking and tube rentals are free.

General Manager Kyle Allison said the water park — the first commercial water park built in Oklahoma since the 1980s — is geared toward families with children ages 3 to 15.

“The fun park has been very successful, and with the addition of the water park we have another entertainment opportunity for the families of Central Oklahoma,” Allison said. “The water park is designed to be a clean and affordable, family friendly attraction.”

Andy Alligator's Water Park will be open Saturdays and Sundays in May. Daily operations will begin on Memorial Day weekend.

Hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and tickets cost $18.95 for guests over 42 inches tall and $15.95 for those less than 42 inches tall. Season tickets are available at
