i think I know this park, since I worked there for 35 years!! It's a nice park, and for the first timers, if I may give you some advise....wear comfortable shoes and clothes, especially on the hot days. If you can go during the evening, plan on doing so when it's not quite as hot. The water park, Oceans of... More

When you think of Worlds of Fun, you would expect it to be just as it says, fun. However, upon arrival you immediately will realize just how spread out everything is, and that if you did not pack food and/or sunscreen, your day will be spent paying a lot of money on food and getting a sunburn from walking around...

This amusement park is a great place to visit! There are a variety of rides for people of all ages and a whole bunch of carnival games to play. Besides that, the staff is super friendly and there are always bathrooms and food around when you need it! The food is a little expensive and it can get crowded at... More

World of Fun is a great park in Kansas City. Its one of the better ones in the Midwest in my option. Great rides for all ages. Ocean of Fun is next door which is a good water park.

We took our 10 year old grandson who was finally tall enough to ride everything and he had a blast. I rode everything with him. I would not recommend the wooden roller coaster to older folks who want to be able to move around the rest of the day. pretty rough. felt safe the whole time we were there as... More

The variety of rides and food and shops is vast. It is a huge park and we had an amazing time. Everything is thoroughly cleaned and by the book here. We had an excellent visit the workers were absolutely delightful!

Just to get it out of the way, it isn't especially cheap. Look for specials and plan ahead. That being said, this place is a blast! Something for everyone, and the regional themes of the park are pretty cool. Some super exciting coasters (Mamba, Patriot, Boomerang) are balanced by arcades and carnival games throughout. To beat the crowd, come early,... More

This is our annual fall getaway destination. We enjoy the Halloween haunt at the park, daylight hours, as it gets scary after dark at this event. Rides are good, food overpriced but convenient. Seems like the ownership is tightening the money belt, no candy or trick or treat street like in years past. Bummer for the kids. Overall a nice... More

I thought that going there was pretty fair. There were some rides, but I felt the majority of them were all the same. Games of course, and lots of food vendors. I wish they took more advantage of being individual.

My parents took me as a kid. Went as a teenager. Went back as an adult. Lots of fun. Adult and kid activities, rides, and shows. Food is expensive as it is at most large venues. Worth a visit.
