    What's with the donkeys anyway?
  1. ^ Copy that. I was wondering what was up. its amusing they are doing it by inches
  2. Oceans Mat racer slide will actually be tied with Hersheyparks mat racer slide at 486 feet in length. Not sure how they goofed on facts, but regardless I’m happy we are getting a great addition.
  3. Nice report guys. Hopefully next season they get the food preparation figured out. I personally would have hated to been there with kids expecting to eat at 5:15 and not having a bite til 7. I can’t remember what dessert we had, but it was really good.
  4. Not trying to change subject but it’s confirmed that Oceans will be getting something new for 2020. They are removing the diamond head water slides that launched with the park in 1982. Not sure what Oceans is getting yet. Probably something from KCK Schlitterbahn, hopefully the slide tower with the mat slide and the tube slides with good air time.
  5. Grand Carnivale!!! Loved it!! I wasn’t sure what it was going to be at first, but now I get it! It’s a little bit of Epcot with food from around the world, Disney parade with fireworks at the end. Small scale though. But Awesome!!! Dance party after the parade. Kids and I enjoyed it. Thankful that Worlds of fun was chosen to be a host park for it. I was impressed.
  6. I also want to add that there are two or three ticket kiosks to the left at the tram drop off. No one was using them, everyone wanted to wait an hour in the ticket line after getting off the bus. Not sure if it’s marked very well, I was too excited that I walked right up to it.
  7. Visited my Favorite Missouri theme park last week. Had a great time as always. I Introduced the kids to Grandfathers mansion, and I actually rode Thunderation for my fist time. I want to say I loved it, except for the turn in the tunnel is painful, painful and similar to the entry of WOF TW helix (was). Kind of snaps my back funny. Took some pics of the construction area 2020, but none as good as what were already posted. Everything was a walk on except fire in the hole. Ate at Gettin Basted on 76 hwy and it was excellent. Couldn’t figure out what kind of wood they used probably b
  8. Never knew this was needed. New for 2020 a 3 story employee dormitory.
  9. I will start the conversation. So everyone probably saw Cedar Fair acquired two of the Schlitterbahn parks In Texas with the option to buy Schlitterbahn KCK for 6 million. I think they part out everything at Schlitterbahn KCK and flip the land for a nice profit. There are a lot of fans of KCK Schlitterbahn and it always did well, however I don’t see Cedar Fair operating an Oceans of fun West. If they did keep it they should definitely build some of those little cabins that WOF has. That would be a hit with the public. I personally don’t care for Schlitterbahn KCK, the adult pool is h
  10. Fury is back with audio and a lighting package. Like the old days. Went to Cotton Blossom BBQ, it was good. I recommend the Pulled pork, it had some bark on it which holds That smoky flavor, I couldn’t see a smoke ring on the brisket and it was one color, so a little disappointed there. The sauces were good. The Original was spicy and tasted like a good Gates clone. The sweet sauce was really good to and still had some spice to it. The extra hot was just okay. Park was beautiful today
  11. I follow them on Facebook and I have a feeling it will be permanent. They didn’t allow kids until the last week it was open in KC. It was strictly an adult arcade, Draftcade, up and down, all adult arcade bars. They were asked if they were coming back to KC and they wouldn’t comment. I think it’s a done deal. I think It will do well in Branson, nostalgia.
  12. Let us know what bbq joint you checked out. My faves are Q39 and Joes KC. Also if you happen to like Doppelbocks, KC Bier Co. makes a great one, KC Bier Winter Bock. My favorite Blvd beers are The Calling which is a lighter representation of a double IPA and their Rye on Rye which is seasonal unfortunately. I agree about Prowler, ride towards the front. If you ride in the back you’re gonna have a bad time lol
  13. I’m absolutely not trying to spread false hope, and what I’m going to tell you is or was just small talk. When I was at Crypticon in July, I talked with a haunt promoter and asked what was new for 2019. He told me the truth and answered “ nothing” Then he told me that there was loose talk about how They would like to Do a reimagining of Zambezi Zinger. Again just talk at that point, probably still is talk, I don’t think Dino’s Leave until 2020? Not sure. Anyways didn’t really want to say anything about it on here, because most likely it will become nothing, but it give
  14. The only food that I think is decent is the bbq. I think they are really Trying to improve the park food. I had some fried potato skewer that wasn’t quite Fried long enough, had the consistency of scalloped potatoes, kinda mushy. Nothing like you would find at Silver dollar City, but props to them for trying I guess. The park is very pretty, I don’t think you will be disappointed. Ride the Prowler, it actually rides decent with it being cold. Also purchase your ticket online, I believe it’s cheaper. Otherwise it’s 41 something with tax at the gate
