Led by our executive chef Wesley Boston, Worlds of Fun’s culinary team aims to flip the script on traditional amusement park food this season. In addition to traditional favorites like funnel cake, pizza and hand-breaded chicken tenders, we’re introducing a variety of new dining options that will delight everyone in the family – including gluten-free and health conscience menu selections.

Cotton Blossom BBQ will be the belle of the ball when it opens this spring. As the largest restaurant in the park, it will become our flagship dining location with seating for up to 360 guests. Available selections range from authentic Kansas City BBQ and rotisserie chicken to home-style sides, salads and gourmet mac n’ cheese. Best of all, it will be a new dining plan location for families and Season Passholders looking to get the biggest bang for their bite.
