Discoveryland – Tulsa, Oklahoma


Discoveryland! will NOT present its outdoor production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! for the 2012 SummerSeason.  The economy and record-breaking heat of last summer has made it difficult to produce our production this year.  We intend to return with our award-winning production of OKLAHOMA! in 2013.

    It would be a HORRIBLE shame if Discoveryland USA was closed for good. It is a wonderful family-friendly place to visit and see the wonderful production of “OKLAHOMA”. Our family has gone every summer for years and will be devistated if that is not on our summer itinerary. Please Tulsa – help Discoveryland!!!!!!!!!!

  2. It would be a great loss if we lost this awesome gift! I have taken one granddaughter and we both loved it. I plan to return with other grandchildren and pray that this remains a glorious adventure remains a part of Oklahoma Tourism.
