nearby water

Specialist Group 2006 However, such examples are rare; for the most part, tapirs are likely to avoid confrontation in favour of running from predators, hiding, or, if possible, submerging themselves in nearby water until a threat is gone. Goudot, Justin. "Nouvelles observations sur le Tapir Pinchaque (Recent Observations on the Tapir Pinchaque)," ''Comptes Rendus,'' Paris 1843, vol. xvi, pages 331-334. Available online with English translation by Tracy Metz. Report contains accounts of wild Mountain Tapirs shying away from human contact at salt deposits after being hunted, and hiding. In 1992, the eastern area or Fun Fair area of the park was re-themed Action Town, and then Movietown in 1993. A Batman stunt show was added and the announcement that a new inverted looping roller coaster called Batman The Ride would be added. Lightning Loops opened for the first half of the season but was disassembled at the end of July to begin construction of Batman. That coaster was sold to Premier Parks, which at the time was a different company than Six Flags (but would eventually buy Six Flags). Premiere Parks put one of the Lightning Loops tracks in Frontier City located in Oklahoma City and it still operates today. Premiere Parks put the other Lightning Loops track in their park in Largo, Maryland (near Washington, DC), then called Adventure World (Six Flags America). That track was renamed the Python, which would be removed in 1999. At the end of 1992 the roller coaster Shockwave was removed as part of the "Ride Rotation Program" of Six Flags. Shockwave would be sent to Six Flags Astroworld and would reopen there in 1994 as Batman The Escape. So by the end of 1992 the park was down to just three coasters. commons:Category:Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City

'''Oklahoma City''' is the capital and largest city of the state (U.S. state) of Oklahoma. The county seat of Oklahoma County (Oklahoma County, Oklahoma), and the Oklahoma City-Shawnee (Shawnee, Oklahoma) Combined Statistical Area had a population of 1,390,835 residents, making it Oklahoma's largest metropolitan area. Oklahoma City's city limits extend into Canadian (Canadian County, Oklahoma), Cleveland (Cleveland County, Oklahoma), and Pottawatomie (Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma) counties, though much of those areas outside of the core Oklahoma County area are suburban or rural (watershed (Drainage basin)). The city ranks as the eighth-largest city in the United States by land area (List of United States cities by area) (including consolidated city-counties (Consolidated city–county); it is the second-largest city in the United States by land area whose government is not consolidated with that of a county).

Oklahoma City features one of the largest livestock markets in the world. Knapp, Adam. Stockyards City district at About.com (Retrieved April 29, 2010) Oil, natural gas, petroleum products and related industries are the largest sector of the local economy. The city is situated in the middle of an active oil field and oil derricks dot the capitol grounds. The federal government (Federal government of the United States) employs large numbers of workers at Tinker Air Force Base and the United States Department of Transportation's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (these two sites house several offices of the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Department's Enterprise Service Center, respectively).

Oklahoma City is on the I-35 Corridor as one of the primary travel corridors into neighboring Texas and Mexico. Located in the Frontier Country (Central Oklahoma) region of the state, the city's northeast section lies in an ecological region known as the Cross Timbers. The city was founded during the Land Run of 1889, and grew to a population of over 10,000 within hours of its founding. The city was the scene of the April 19, 1995 bombing (Oklahoma City bombing) of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, in which 168 people died. It was the deadliest terror attack in the history of the United States until the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism (Domestic terrorism in the United States) in U.S. history.

Since the time weather records (List of weather records) have been kept, Oklahoma City has been struck by nine strong tornadoes, eight F EF4s and one F5.
