Frontier City was once quite an unusual enterprise. It functioned as a thrilling amusement park during summer seasons. When cold winter months arrived; rides, concessions, games, and souviner shops shut down, and the park metamorphosed into a unique bazaar.
In the mid 1980’s Paramount Pictures stepped in and bought the place lock, stock, and barrel. Gladly, Six Flags Frontier City expanded into a first class theme park, but today it operates strictly as an amusement enterprise with an admission fee, those specialty shops are no more.

During the summer season the old Frontier City Opera House always staged professional vaudeville, variety, or old time melodrama shows.
Besides the standard dozen or so amusement park rides like the Ferris Wheel, bumper cars, merry-go-rounds, etc., Frontier City also had some wonderfully lavish thrill rides such as Lost River, 89er Ghost Mine, Autopia, and the flying saucer.
Souvenir shops closed during winter months, but other memorable year round stores were the Jam Cellar, Taffy Shop, Norrick Antiques, and Jim’s Gems & Rare Books.
