“Wonderful place to go during Halloween”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

It's so fun there during halloween, suggest you go there and try those haunted houses:)! However, it's kind of expensive the food and drink there.

“Tons of family fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Great amusement park, Lots of great rides. Next door to Oceans of fun. If it is hot, get a dual park pass and cool off.

“Hell of an amusement park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Its always innovative and has as much to offer as any park in the world! I've seen most of them. Much more exciting than most, if you like rides. If you are looking to be themed out... go to Disney. But if you want rides... this is it!

“Hands down the best (and cheap) within 400 miles around.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great mix of thrill rides, shows, water slides, wave pools, kiddy rides, and carnival games. Great for all ages. And this year (finally!) you get BOTH Oceans of Fun (water park) AND Worlds of Fun (theme park) for one reasonable price. If you plan on going 2 or more times for the year you should get the gold season passes. A gold pass is 108$ (adult) or 81$ (junior/senior), while each day pass is 39$ (Adult) or 30$ junior/senior). I know an 18$ difference for 2 days. But you also get free parking (15$ value per day!), early entry, and numerous other in the park discounts such as 10% off on food and rentals. Plus if you can make for 3 or more times then this is a no brainer.

You could stay over night on property in either a RV, cabin, or cottage. The cabin and cottages are pricey around 155$ or more per night. When the holiday inn (+1 (816) 455-1060) only a mile away is about 120$ a night. If you stay at the park you can also get discount tickets (about half off for two days). I priced out a 2 day trip for June and whether you stay on the property or a nearby hotel it will cost about 500 bucks for a family of four (2 adults and 2 juniors). I would rather stay at a hotel and get the perks of the gold passes and get the opportunity of going again later in year for free.

Kids will love camp snoopy! There is so much to do for the little ones. Bigger thrill seekers can enjoy a wide variety of roller coasters and spinning rides. The chickens in your group would like the live shows or maybe you just want to get out of the heat for a little bit.

Four stars out of five. Worlds of Fun is no Disney World, but for the money I think it is a great value. Do your homework, find what works best for you and your family.

“Amazing Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I have been going to this place for over 3 years and over 100 times. This place is a ton of fun and also it's what you can expect. There are tons of rides, lots of thrill coasters and lots of kid coasters. The food is meh. Average. The waits for rides can be very short of very long...it depends on when you go. If you go in the day on a weekday, it won't be busy at all. It's very busy at night and on the weekend because that's when the teens come and the families come. If you come during Halloween Haunt time (september-october) it's a ton of fun..if you want to be scared. Do NOT recommend brining children at night during this time. It gets very...scary. Haha!

The staff varies, you don't have too much interaction with them but I haven't had any problems.

So if you're looking for something to do with friends or your family, I definitely recommend this.
