Spend an Enjoyable Afternoon at Worlds of Fun

Worlds of Fun

The summer will be here before you know it! Worlds of Fun, the fun-filled theme park located just outside of Kansas City, is now open and providing thrills and entertainment. Here’s everything you need to know about the park and some insider tips.


Thrill seekers will get an adrenaline rush from roller coasters like Patriot, Boomerang, and Prowler. The Mamba is the tallest and fastest coaster in the park, taking you 205 feet in the air for the first drop and reaching up to 75 miles per hour.

They also have classics like the Scrambler and a log flume. Relive your childhood on the Grand Carrousel which was carved in 1926 by the famous M.C. Illions.

If rides aren’t really your thing, you can relax and enjoy live music shows throughout the day. 


You won’t have to go hungry at the park! There are plenty of dining options with pizza, burgers, barbecue, hot dogs, and, of course, those huge turkey legs. Treat yourself to Dippin’ Dots, Cinnabon, and funnel cakes. Panda Express and Subway also have on-site locations.

You might want to consider adding a dining plan to your day ticket. For only $13.99, you can enjoy an entree, one side, and a drink at participating locations. For only $29.99, you can dine every 90 minutes during your stay.

A drink is not included in the all-day plan, but you can choose an entree and side each time.

Oceans of Fun

The water park will open for the season on May 24 and one ticket grants you access to both parks! Zip down the slides, float down the lazy river, and let the water rush over you at the huge Wave Pool.

Insider Tips

  • With a theme park so close to City Place at Westport, it would be worth it to invest in a season pass. A silver level pass does not include free parking and it’s only about $10 more expensive to upgrade to gold. Your gold pass also has perks such as discounts, early park access, and bring-a-friend benefits on select days.  
  • You can also save money by purchasing a refillable drink cup; it’s $2 cheaper to buy it online before you go to the park. If you have a season pass, it’s also a better value to buy the cup that is refillable all season. 
  • Although coolers are not allowed in the park, you can take bottled water with you.
  • To maximize your ride time and minimize your wait time, purchase a Fast Lane Pass. This can also be added to your Season Pass for an additional fee.

Don’t miss out on the most thrilling attraction in the Kansas City area! Take some time to have fun, relax, or cool off at Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun.
