Park News - (4/15/13) Reports from the opening weekend of Worlds of Fun posted to MidWestInfoGuide show off Dinosaurs Alive as well as a look at The Rest of the Park.
(10/23/12) MidWestInfoGuide has posted their own review of Halloween Haunt at Worlds of Fun this week. Check it out.
(8/16/12) MidWestInfoGuide has posted some new pictures showing off the construction on Zombie High, the park’s new Haunt for this Halloween season. They also gave off a sneak peek at the park’s special 40th Anniversary logo coming for the 2013 season.
(8/2/12) I’m told that Worlds of Fun has raised their parking fees from $10 to $13, along with a $20 option for VIP parking.
2013 - New Waterslides / Waterpark Included - (9/3/12) Great news for Worlds of Fun guests in 2013… the park has announced that Oceans of Fun waterpark will be open to all guests and no longer a separate admission. Even better, they are adding onto Oceans of Fun with the park’s biggest ever expansion… a massive new six-slide tower attraction. There will be three new body slides, each starting off by loading guests into a drop-pod where a trap door will open under them, plunging them into a near vertical plunge and then into a series of twists and turns inside an enclosed tube. The other three slides will be tube slides… two starting off enclosed and opening up into large drops for the finale, while the third will be one of the new Constrictor slides, tossing guests into a series of extremely tight high-g spirals.
Oh, and the park will be keeping the Diamond Head slides after all… for now at least. No word yet on what will be happeneing inside Worlds of Fun for 2013, such as the rumored Dinosaurs Alive upcharge attraction. The park may keep that under wraps until early 2013.
(8/30/12) Oceans of Fun will make an announcement on August 31st as part of the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Worlds of Fun.
(7/20/12) A couple of new rumors have come in this week for Worlds of Fun. For starters I’m told that the planned new water slides coming to Oceans of Fun in 2013 are expected to replace the three Diamond Head slides which actually opened up with the waterpark. So get your last slides in while you still can.
In other news, the whispers coming in from the shadows claims that the park is planning on testing out some Rocky Mountain Topper Track on Timber Wolf over the off season. If true, look for it to be placed around the mid-course helix area.
2013 - Dinosaurs Alive - Confirmed - (4/2/13) A construction tour of the new Dinosaurs Alive attraction at Worlds of Fun has been posted to MidWestInfoGuide.
(11/19/12) Worlds of Fun finally confirmed what we’ve all known was coming for months now… Dinosaurs Alive will open in 2013. The upcharge attraction ($5 for all guest, including passholders) will feature over 35 life-sized dinosaurs, including a 40 ft tall, 72 foot long Ruyangosaurus.
(10/17/12) While the rumored Dinosaurs Alive project has yet to be officially announced by Worlds of Fun, a link searching the permit records for Kansas City has posted a request from Worlds of Fun which confirms it all in plain English.
(7/4/12) More rumors about the addition of Dinosaurs Alive for 2013 at Worlds of Fun are drifting in. This time we have a location, as we’ve been told to keep an eye on the old Zambezi Zinger tunnel as a possible entrance into the attraction that will fit in between the Boomerang and Prowler coasters.
(6/2/12) Screamscape sources tell us that Dinosaurs Alive may hatch somewhere inside Worlds of Fun starting in 2013.
