I know we've seen the renovation of Planet Snoopy, expansion of Ocean's of Fun, and addition of Steelhawk, but that's nothing to really get excited about. This park needs a new coaster, dark ride, SOMETHING... and badly.

Come on Cedar Fair, throw us a bone!


Dude, depressing is living in the Northwest and having only Wild Waves to go to.

You need to look at the entire park since WOF/OOF is all inclusive with paid admission. Ya'll got some really nice water slides in Shark's Revenge, Constrictor, and Predator's Plunge just last year (2013). I would feel very fortunate to live near KC with WOF/OOF, and Schitterbahn nearby.

I do understand what you are saying though, a new coaster would make a very decent park awesome. But Mamba, Prowler, and Patriot beat the crud out of anything within driving distance of Seattle.

I think they'll add a Disk'O and flying scooters. Maybe they might try out Iron Horsing Timberwolf.

Personally if you aks me, it will be a coaster. Steelhawk isn't popular with the crowds and they haven't had a new one since prowler. They need a launched coaster, but I'll take anything with airtime! :airtimer:

^^ CF will never Iron Horse Timber Wolf. It will stay as is or be completely removed down the line.

In an interview with the CF COO someone asked if we could ever see an RMC and all he said was that they look at all options. So I would put that rumor down so fast. Not sure if it would work on Timber wolf specifically.

I would love to see Timber Wolf get the RMC treatment, but unfortunately I don't think Cedar Fair will debut a Rocky Mountain project at a smaller park like WOF.

I do think an Iron Horse makeover would be a fantastic ride, but I'd much rather see the thing demolished and something brand new put in its place.

Worlds of Fun just posted this on facebook. Way for water parks!

Robb, if you want to make any edits, be my guest!
New waterpark attraction coming in 2015 at Worlds of Fun

Kansas City, MO: Worlds of Fun will provide another splash to its Oceans of Fun waterpark with the addition of Splash Island. The 4200-square-foot interactive water attraction opens in the spring of 2015 on Memorial Day weekend and spells fun for the whole family.

"It's exciting to add an attraction for a third straight season," Worlds of Fun vice-president and general manager Frank Wilburn said. "We've seen many successes combining Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun into one park for one price, and with our guests looking for more activities that could be shared by the whole family we've addressed those desires in a major way."


Splash Island will be the perfect place for families to relax and soak up the sun as water jets shoot up from the ground, cascade through the air and gush from tulips, flowers, frogs, and turtles. The attraction will be located near Coconut Cove.

Guests have long enjoyed the kayaks and canoes on the Buccaneer Bay. Next summer, guests will glide across the water in swan shaped paddle boats. "The swan paddle boats will provide our guests with another layer of unique experience and continue to add value to the overall guest experience at Worlds of Fun," Wilburn said.

Worlds of Fun 2015 season passes are now on sale for as low as nine easy payments of $10.50 or $94.50 plus applicable taxes and fees online at worldsoffun.com. Season passes for the 2015 season can also be purchased at Worlds of Fun during park operating days.

A season-long dining plan can be added to a 2015 season pass and is available with the easy pay program when purchased at the same time as a season pass. The season-long dining plan allows guests to enjoy two meals (lunch and dinner) every visit throughout the 2015 season.

Season-long dining is for $85.50 plus applicable taxes and fees. Similar to a season pass, now is the time to purchase the season-long dining plan at the absolute lowest price.

Worlds of Fun is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FUN." In addition to Worlds of Fun, Cedar Fair owns and operates ten other amusement parks, three water parks, one indoor water park resort, and five hotels. Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in Gilroy, Calif. under management contract.
