Splash it

Isn’t it about time for a Big Kahuna? You bet it is, now that White Water Bay, 3908 W. Reno, is open for that swelterin’ season called summer. The Big Kahuna is the state’s largest family-friendly raft ride, but get wet in the lazy river, the waterslides or the 500,000-gallon wave pool.

Shoot it

Ten balloon targets, Old West single-action revolvers, horses and high speeds — hell, why is cowboy mounted shooting not an Olympic sport? We’ll make do with the Central U.S. Championship, firing off today through Saturday at the Lazy E Arena, 9600 Lazy E Drive in Guthrie. Kapow! Call 282-7433 or visit lazye.com.

Sick it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Look, if your kids pass gas at the dinner table, at least make it educational by sending them to the Bright Night of Grossology at Science Museum Oklahoma, 2100 N.E. 52nd. From 6 p.m. Friday to 8:30 a.m. Saturday, they’ll learn all about snot, pet hissing cockroaches and — maybe, just maybe — catch a few hours of shut-eye. Admission is $45 for each kid, plus $20 for an accompanying adult. Call 602-3760 or visit sciencemuseumok.org.

Fish it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
No way would I ever stick my bare arm into a hole underwater — I’ve seen Jaws: The Revenge. And yet every year, as they will Saturday, the bold and the brave converge on Pauls Valley City Park in (yes) Pauls Valley, to do just that at the world-famous Okie Noodling Tournament. Watch, marvel, eat. Admission is free. Call 238-6491 or visit okienoodling.com.

Ring it


OKG7 things to do

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus still bills itself as “the greatest show on earth.” OKG7 may be inclined to agree, since the five Fully Charged performances scheduled between Thursday and Sunday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno, include something called The Human Fuse, 4-ton elephants, a “Mongolian strongman duo,” and clowns changing a light bulb. Tickets are $24-$72. Call 800-745-3000 or visit chesapeakearena.com.
