Worlds of Fun
Offering the Midwest a tradition of family entertainment, Worlds of Fun is jam-packed with over 175 acres of exciting rides and fun-filled attractions. Roller coaster lovers can choose from the Boomerang, Timber Wolf, Spinning Dragons and Mamba, one of the world's top 25 roller coasters. Other popular rides include Fury of the Nile and The Detonator, a ride that shoots riders up 200-foot towers. With kiddy rides galore, there is fun for the entire family. Plan on spending the entire day and wearing good walking shoes.Park Opens from April upto October. Check Website for Timings.
Took my 6-year old son there for his birthday. The nice thing about the park is that they have rides for all ages. We did the Ride & Slide and visited both parks in one day. Perfect for hot days...you can hit the world part in the morning and late evening and the ocean part during the heat of the day. They even have lockers (for $5 extra) you can rent to store your stuff. Plenty of places to eat at, too:) I would recommend going during the week rather than weekends because usually there are shorter lines which means more for your money. They also have a rider swap for adults taking younger kids so both parent's can ride the ride one right after another. What a great idea!!
went to worlds of fun and i tell tou what,its it is the place to go,i will never go to six flags again after going here.the staff was so friendly and it was so clean,the rides was excellent and we went on a wednsday and didnt have to wait long to ride the rides.we got the joe barbecue deal that included both parks,thats the way to go.food was excellent.would love to go there again
I love Worlds of Fun because it has Fun rised to Ride like the Patriot taht they just built that is so fun that you will wont to do it again & again. If you are taking little Kids it has a Fun Camp Snoopy that is just 4 kids that has many rides that are just their size. and if your on a Vacation to Kansas City then you can stay at the Village. When your at Worls of Fun you can make a pit stop at Ocean of Fun. So you should try to spend a day or two and Worlds of Fun
What you'll love about this place is that unlike most amusement parks, you don't have to stand in line for hours to ride the thrill rides. The park has a few coasters, but nothing to really get excited over. Actually most of the thrill rides last less than thirty seconds which was a little disappointing. Don't bother trying to save $5 by trying to purchase tickets online, they still charge a printing & delivery charge so you really only save about 45 cents. The food is overpriced as usual and there are not really any park characters that your children would recognize.
I have been to Patagonia and seen the glacier there, and it moves faster than the people working the food concessions at WoF. They should partner with someone like McDonalds who is used to serving more than one person every 5 minutes.
The wait for the popular rides is extra long, but okay so is Disney and Universal.
At least WoF hasn't yet got into the scam of asking you to pay another $30 bucks for a premium (read: line jumping) pass.
Another gotcha is the overall cost. Not just the $36.95 (less $7 or $8 coupon if you can find one), but the $8 parking and the additional cost of some of the rides inside. This is not a pay single entry fee and ride everything. Go Carts cost $5 for 4 minutes. Climb the simulated rock wall - another $5. Heaven forbid try the bungie flying - if there are 2 of you $23 each!
This is a spectacular place to hang out for the day, if you can afford it. To help with this you can find discounts through stores such as Price Chopper, or you can find group discounts. When you go you should still be willing to pay; food and drinks are pricy, and you may say that you don't need them, but when you are walking around all day in the sun, it gets pretty tempting. The rides are the best and definitely worth it. I just wish it didn't break you just to take your family there. Save up and be prepared and you'll have the time of your life!
First off my first two experiences at Worlds of Fun were disappointing. Kansas summer days are hot/humid and when you add too many people, long lines and very little shade people get cranky. I also thought the ticket price was a little steep lets face it Worlds of Fun is Fun, but it is not on the same level as six flags.
Then by chance I attended Halloweekends which Worlds of Fun hosts Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from the end of September through Halloween. Tickets are reasonably priced and the park is dark, cool, and the crowds lighter.
Only the most popular rides and attractions are open, but lines are shorter and you can ride as often as you like (or as much as you can handle!). In addition to the rides there are also 5 haunts and special shows that are incredibly well executed. You can tell the employees are having a good time scaring and most have impressive costumes.
I love Halloween and I love rides so this was the perfect combination for me.
Worlds of Fun is amazing! I live in the Kansas City area, and every summer I just have to come! It is the perfect place to go, whan you don't live by Walt Disney World! I am a thrill seeker, so I ride all of the rollercoasters. They are very fast,and so much fun. I am looking forward to riding the new Patriot! There are also rides and activities for the young ones too. This is a place for any type of family to go, and you know that the whole family will have a blast!
As a Kansas City native, it is easy to take this great city's attractions for granted and overlook the treasure you have in your own backyard. Worlds of Fun (WOF) is my example of this. As a child, I LOVED visiting WOF and seeing the newest addition to the rollercoaster family.
WOF is a perfect family atmosphere and is an affordable way to entertain the children in your family, and the kid at heart in all of us.
I highly recommend this theme park and you will definitely get your monies worth! I have visited Six Flags within the last few years and it cannot compare to the rides, roller coaster and family atmosphere that WOF offers!!
