I would go to Arnolds Park. It will not be crowded, almost certainly. The
atmosphere is highly romantic. The coaster is fantastic. There is much to do
and great places to stay. And it is a park that is hard to get to unless you
plan on going there. No one just happens to go to Arnolds Park. You may end up
for many reasons in Tulsa or Oklahoma City. You will not accidentally end up
anywhere close to Arnolds Park. Finally, Arnolds NEEDS the business and is a
great park. Call them and tell them of your plans and don't be surprised if the
park does special favors for you!!!!
And if you must, you can add Adventureland. It is a very long trip between the
two. Adventureland has two world class coasters. The Tornado is probably the
most underrated woodie in the US. It is truly a great coaster. And Outlaw
started the twister coaster renaissance. But this Des Moines park is likely to
be very busy during the 4th.

matter, the entire park.
