My wife was asking me about this place and trying to find anyone besides me that remembers the place. It was back in the corner of the shopping center behind the old movie theater on the NW corner.

I remember going there as a kid, but few people I know remember it.

Anyone else go there, or take their kids?

Any pics floating around?

Good stories would also be appreciated.

I remember that place. I did a Google on it and the only thing I could find was on Lost Tulsa for Peaches Records and Tapes.

It's about half way down the page. Apparently it was several different names over the years.

I vaguely remember it -- but nothing about it in particular.  Didn't it have video games and little kid rides you'd find at old grocery stores?  I remember I liked it, but I must have been three or four years old.

They had a pretty good classical section in the early 90s.

i know we took it after huggy bears was over and built the Beat Club. it seemed too much work to take out all the horse carousel in the northwest corner so we built the big elevated dance floor and dj booth over the top of it.
