The fast food restaurant owned by Inspire Brands recently opened a redesigned drive-in in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, according to a Tuesday post on the Inspire Brands website.

The updated drive-in includes a covered outdoor patio with string lights, where families can play lawn games, and Sonic’s classic docks and drive-thru, the post said.

The exterior of the restaurant has also been redesigned with bright colors reminiscent of summer and a neon cherry on the side of the building as an homage to Sonic’s signature drink, Cherry Limeade, the post said.
