So much fun during the day. Just do not go after 5pm. The atmosphere is not safe at all. The park is packed with people that seem to have come for a "cruising" social situation. The security is beefed up all over the park with cops, park rangers, and all else. Fights were breaking out all over, and groups of people shove you around. Do not bring your family after 5. Unless you plan on staying in Camp Snoopy.

Worked there 06/07 seasons. The prices for drink/food are pricey. Same with getting into the park and parking. Raised that since alst year. But like every amusement park everything is gonna get expensive.
Rides are fun. Games are to.

Best time to go is arounf Halloweekends, mostly Friday nights, don't have to deal with as many people and annoying teenagers.

This amusement park has enough rides to keep you on something different all day long. This is the place for those who love thrills and excitement. If you love great roller coasters you will love Worlds of Fun. They have rides for all age groups. They also have a wide selection of foods to please everyone. The shows are also really good too. Your money is well spent with a day here. I would much rather go here than Six Flags.

I always love going to Worlds of Fun. They have great rides, a good variety of shows, and wonderful food. Tickets are kinda pricey, but if you stay all day long they pay for themselves.

not a great place to go with 3 little ones without help especially during busy hours. Lines can get long at times and food is overpriced. Make sure you have snacks for your little one if he is a picky eater and won't get fast food. I couldn't find anything healthy here to eat.

I've been to Worlds of Fun a number of times, and I have to say it has gotten better over the years. What was once a groovy, outdated theme park is making a name for itself with better roller coasters, special themed weekends, and great stuff for kids to do. The prices have gotten higher, so be prepared to bring lots of money for parking, tickets, concessions, and lockers.

PROS: Fun rides
CONS: Not open very late some evenings

This park does not have any gimmics to attract people to it, it just has some great rides. The new spinning dragons is a great coaster. I didnt think I would like it, but it was really fun. The Mamba as always is one of the best coasters I have been on. It's a typical theme park.Has great rides and long lines.The season pass is worth it if you plan to visit more than once a season.Something for people of all ages from rides to shows. There is a section dedicated to the little ones. They love it and we enjoyed watching them have fun.It's a little expensive if you buy tickets at the gate, but if you go to a grocery store, or city hall, you can get a pretty decent discount.

This is a fun place but they have gotten rid of alot of their more thrilling rides so I think they are trying to taget a younger age group than young adults. Pretty reasonable price since you get a whole day of fun out of it. I wish they would get some more roller coasters and of course lower the price of food in the park. Not very clean as in the bathrooms and seems like there is trash everywhere.

I grew up going to Worlds of Fun and have the best memories from childhood and high school. The rides are great fun, and there's lots of them. The lines generally aren't very long, usually less than 10 minutes, if that much. There are plentiful food outlets that sell overpriced, underqualified food. But such is typical of amusement parks. They introduce a new big attraction every few years and spice it up with shows, concerts, and special events.

I love Worlds of Fun. Plenty of fun rides, good food, and top notch live entertainment. It can get a little pricey at times(parking is a bit much I think), so definitely get a season passport if you plan on going more than once or twice. You can save a bunch on parking by getting the season parking pass as well.

Worlds of Fun is a great place to go to getaway. No, it's not Disneyland, but it is still fun. They have tried to keep the rides exciting. They have quite a few different types of rollercoasters. The price is pretty high if you buy your tickets there. They mostly cater to a teenage crowd. I would recommend this place to someone who likes rollercoasters.

My family loves to visit this place. The prices are about average. Parking is a little high. We go to Worlds Of Fun some summers instead of taking a long vacation and it saves us money but we still get to have a fun time as a family.

So much to do there you really have to take 2 days to do it all. Just make sure you don't have a weak stomach. The lines are a bit outrageous, but I can imagine it is because we went on a weekend as opposed to a week day. I recommend staying off of the Timber Wofl if you are over 25, it is a VERY jerky ride.

Worlds of Fun is an excellent amusement park, especially for one not backed by a corporate giant. They add at least one major attraction every year, offer several rollercoasters, water rides, classic carnival rides, and have a theme park for children. The park is arranged into sections divided by regions of the world, each with their own unique rides and atmosphere.

There is a great amusement park right in our back yard at World's of Fun. It offers a ton of rides for both the young and young at heart. The prices are a little steep especially for those over 3years of age.

Worlds of fun is a great amusement park. There are so many roller coasters and water rides. They even have a special section for the smaller kids with rides that they can actually ride on. My favorite roller coaster is the timber wolf and the mamba. It is a little pricey if you don't have a season passport so if you plan on going more than once you should buy a season pass.

I love Worlds Of Fun!!! The rides are awesome, and there is something for someone of every age! The Snoopy Campground is a wonderful place to take the younger children, and scattered throughout the park you can find mild to thrilling rides for everyone! The rollercoasters are just what rollercoasters should be, BIG AND SCARY! The resteraunts are yummy, and not too pricey! Wonderful park to take the family!

I love going to Worlds of Fun. Okay, the parking can be expensive as are the tickets. If you plan on going more than once, you might as well get a season pass and a season parking pass. This will save lots of money. Our family usually takes a cooler and leaves it in the car. When it is lunch time or dinner time, we get our hands stamped so we can reenter the park and go to the car to eat. This is much less expensive than buying the food in the park. The rides are great. Generally, the lines are not too long and the shows are pretty good. There is also a nice section for the smaller kids with rides and Snoopy. This would be a great place to spend a full day!!

PROS: Lots of rides!!!
CONS: Expensive!!

First off, Worlds Of Fun is the only major amusement park within 4 hours of the Kansas City area, so it automatically has a strangle-hold on the market. But despite the lack of competition, Worlds Of Fun still offers an enjoyable experience. Key rides such as the Mamba, Detonator, and Timberwolf are worth the price of admission alone. However, I would recommend only purchasing an evening-only pass (4:00PM - close). The evening-only passes are less than half the norma cost, but still provide more than enough time to ride everything.

PROS: Relatively short lines, decently priced evening-only pass
CONS: Lack of major thrill rides.

Oceans of fun doesn't really seem to have a lot of rides or pools for the younger children.
Worlds of Fun has a lot of stuff to do, and is always a blast! It is a little pricey, but they have good specials from time to time. It also worries me that they have so many teenagers operating the rides.
Usually a fun time is had!

You can go after 5 and get in half price or for some discounted price which is a really good deal if you go on a weekend when it is open later. They also have Oceans of Fun located next to this and you can visit there for slides and pools. If you like rides and games Worlds of fun is where you want to be. The newest ball pit is a great place for the kids.

Oceans of Fun is fun for the whole family. For adults that don't like to do water slides..you can lay out in the sun, or you can lay out on the edges of the pool water. There is a separate area for little ones in a small water area. The place is really big with lots of big and little slides. There are several places to eat. Lockers to lock up valuables. It's alot of fun!!!
It is really a fun place, we took the whole family several times this year and we had a blast. It is closed now..but will reopen in april!!!

PROS: Lots of different slides to ride. Lots of places to lay in the sun.
CONS: You will want to go again and again.

I'm a kid at heart; I LOVE amusement parks. The problem with Worlds of Fun is that it's the only one! Because of that, I think the park has come to take itself for granted. The workers are seemingly unhappy and lethargic and it makes being there a less than comfortable experience. For children though, it doesn't matter. If you have children and live nearby, this is definitely the place to be. If you're an older kid (like me) consider a roadtrip elsewhere. Don't forget...parking isn't free!

it's the only amusement park close enough for a one day trip if you're in topeka, and it has original rides, not like chain parks. it was definitely at it's best in the 80s but it's still fun.

Great place to spend a day. Always has ticket deals going on, so not too expensive. Best selection of rides out of any amusement park in the world. Fun stuff to do for people of all ages. Always fairly clean also, which is a lot to ask for in an amusement park!

Stax of Trax went from the best show in the park to the WORST show in the park. The music has basically all changed and what they did keep you can't recognize because the current cast just can't pull it off. It's just a shame!!!
