Is it just me, or does the holiday season seem to come earlier every year? We can’t even put our Jack-o’-lanterns away before Santa comes creeping up the shopping aisles. I’m usually a little “bah-humbug” about the whole thing, but with the new additions coming to WinterFest this season – I can’t help but get excited.

Back and Better in 2018 - #WinterFestKC

After its anticipated debut last November, WinterFest was the hit of the 2017 season. With well over five million shimmering lights, miles of immersive décor, 10 live shows and an extended lineup of activities – we’re certainly home to one of the grandest holiday traditions in the Heartland.

This season will be even better. With our new features, we’ll now have more holiday cheer than the North Pole – quite an accomplishment. Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the new at #WinterFestKC.

Carriage Rides – Oh, what fun it is to ride with The Old West Carriage Company. Take in the sights and sounds of the park with a carriage ride down Heart of America Boulevard. Bells on bobtails will ring as you marvel at the dazzling displays of WinterFest while taking a cozy horse-drawn carriage ride.

Jack Frost’s Igloo Village – Enjoy WinterFest with comfort and convenience inside Jack Frost’s Igloo Village, where you and your friends can warm-up, hangout, eat, drink and relax inside your very own luxury igloo. With a spacious layout and comfortable furnishings, you and seven of your friends will have the ultimate home base.

Tinsel Town – Take a trip back in time to the flashy and classy 1950’s. Experience the magical hustle and bustle of the holidays in this all-new themed area. Stories of Christmas past come alive in this picture-perfect community, equipped with a community town square, , old-time department store and the soothing tunes of the melodious Mistletones.

New Characters – WinterFest characters like Jingle Bell, Holly, Lolly and Jolly, Jack Frost and the Sugar Plum Fairy were an instant fan-favorite last year. To help us add even more merriment on our midways, we’ve doubled the amount of roaming characters. New characters include The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Captain Macaron, Mr. and Mrs. Tannenbaum and more!

New Year’s Eve – Worlds of Fun will now be open through New Year’s Eve with a special celebration from 5:00 p.m. through midnight. Families can ring in the new year with Snoopy’s Countdown Rockin’ NYE Party, fireworks, shows and live music.
