Yeah I wouldn't mind boomerang going away either. its removal would open up a nice plot of real estate for a sizable coaster. Maybe they can get a medium sized Mack about the size of Time Traveler in there.

They could put Millennium Force in that spot if they really wanted. That plot of land goes straight back to the edge of the property and behind Oceans of Fun's lake. Without Boomerang and Dinos, there's room for anything. The limiter here is not space but how much they're willing to spend.

I do love boomerang coasters, but that space could be so better utilized. It looked like it was just "plopped" in there. WOF deserves something a little nicer. i was very impressed with that park.

Some advice for a first time visitor!

Coming to WOF next Saturday June 30th. I plan to arrive by 9:15 to use the early admission for Platinum Passholders.

1) What coaster should I ride first? Which one has the longest/slowest moving line?

2) I can only stay til early afternoon. Is it worth it to get FastLane for the day?

3) Any must do/must EATS in the park?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Welcome to Missouri!

1) Spinning Dragons. It's the only big coaster with a height limit under 48", so it gets a long line that moves slowly due to 4 people per car.

2) Don't prepurchase, but if it's insane crowds then yes. In the summer a lot of people go to the waterpark so you may be ok without it even on a Saturday. Forecast looks good for now, but we get a lot of thunderstorms out here that develop pretty quickly, and those days obviously are dead. But if you find yourself on a sunny day in the 80s when the entire KC metro is there, then absolutely buy it. It's extremely rare for then to sell out.

3) Chickie's and Pete's! Also Battle Creek Barbecue is pretty good for park food. There is much, much better BBQ to be had in the city, and I personally recommend Q39 at 39th & Summit: https://q39kc.com

Thanks for the advice!

I was going to pre-purchase FastLane, but they charge a $5.95 convenience charge in the app that they don't charge in person. No thanks!

There are a few changes around the park that caught my attention this week. One is the name and look of Mummies Yummies. It was renamed The Oasis, sporting bright orange and blue colors. I honestly think the new upgrade looks nice. The second is actually also in Africa, three poles were placed at the corner of the amphitheater, where they use to house the All Wheels Sport Show. The fact that one of the poles were placed directly at the corner makes it seem like a fence of some kind could be put up.

I do like the paint details they added to the oasis as it’s now called. It looks nice. Hopefully they could share some of that paint with the decorations and murals on Fury of The Nile. Sure, those 3 poles are weird. But why build a pad for a bench if it’s just going to be fenced off :lmao:

The potential of a fence is very exciting! If its a construction fence that is. I'm not getting my hopes up though lol!
