Have not been here in over 25 years. Great and changed alot. Roller coasts are great but some where closed. Best time to go is week day and June as no crowds. Also raining or cloudy helps too.

Overall the park was shaded, which is nice compared to other amusement parks we've been to. The park must be understaffed because some rides didn't open until noon or were only running 1 train on the roller coasters causing 2 hour waits. If you plan to eat, you might as well bring your own. The pretzel line had 2 people... More

Love all the rides they have. Well worth the drive. Never like the long lines. Now they have installed TV's that play music. My favorite rides are Timber Wolf and Spinning Dragons

WOF is small. There are not a lot of big roller coasters here. But really, the place is clean, the staff is knowledgable, and we had fun. One ticket buys your way into Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. We went two days. Our second day we spent at OoF and paid for a private cabana. The wait staff... More

It is really a good amusement park. Amusement parks just aren't my cup of tea. There is not much to keep one entertained if you don't enjoy the rides......which is to be expected.

When we arrived at 10 am everything was closed until after 11:30 am on 4th of July weekend. We arrived early and drove 3 hours so we could beat the heat and the crowds! Nothing was posted about ride closures or opening times! Waste of time and money!

The park has lots of high thrill rides and a big playplace for young children. The crowds were low when we went on a Sunday. It got more crowded near 2:00 then thinned out around 4:00.

I have a family of six and have difficulty finding places that are not extremely expensive. Was very happy to find cottages on the Worlds of Fun campus. Room to sleep 6, deck, grill, cable, kitchenette, pool, hot tub, mini store, laundry. We would walk to the park, come back for lunch, and go back for the rest of the... More

We arrived early and many of the rides were not open. The food and drink cost is high, but it's an amusement park. I would stay clear of the bbq place, it was really bad. Oceans of Fun was worn and showing it's age and everything costs, tubes, lockers, etc

It has a lot of variety for all ages! Between shows, and rides, it's an all day escape! Bring a bottle of water and wear your tennis shoes!
