New Worlds of Fun Shirt Collection By Charlie Hustle

They say fashion can be quite cyclical, like a ride on the Skyliner or Zulu. Worlds of Fun recently partnered with Kansas City's Charlie Hustle, the familiar apparel company behind the classic KC heart t-shirts. Together, we created a new collection of tees that celebrate the past and present of our iconic Kansas City amusement park.

"We are huge fans of Worlds of Fun - the atmosphere, its ability to evoke happiness and the memories we've all made growing up with the park. Our primary goal with this collection was to create designs that reflect that and conjure up our favorite memories from Worlds of Fun," said Katie Martincich, chief marketing officer at Charlie Hustle. 

This collection is now available; you can order, shop, and ship your favorite prints from anywhere in the country. A selection of exclusive Worlds of Fun/Charlie Hustle deigns are also available at select merchandise locations in the park.  

What's in the collection? 

Inspired by classic designs, this new collection of "Vintage Made Fresh" uses their shirts as a canvas so you can express your love and passion for Worlds of Fun or your favorite attraction. All are made in the U.S. with the highest quality fabrics, giving you a soft vintage feel. 

One design highlighted in the collection includes the original logo from the park's opening in 1973. Along with the throwback logo, shirts also showcase former rides in the park.

 

Worlds of Fun's first roller coasters, Zambezi Zinger began operation in 1973 and was enjoyed by many until the eventual decommissioning in 1997. For many locals, this classic was their first roller coaster, and now, you can pay homage by sporting this Zinger tee around town. 

The Orient Express is another treasured ride and blast from the past.  Through the use of exuberant and eye-catching neon colors, this shirt matches the excitement that the ride was known for.  

Celebrate the now!

Along with recognition of former rides, guests can wear some of their current favorites...like the Mamba. Guests have been enjoying the thrill of the park's tallest and most iconic rollercoaster since it opened in 1998! The Timber Wolf, one of our oldest and boldest rides in the park is also highlighted in the collection. 

Where can I purchase this new apparel? 

You don't even need to leave your house! If you'd like to purchase merchandise from the Worlds of Fun collection, visit Charlie Hustle online. Find these classic designs and more on the Worlds of Fun collection page. 

If you're lucky enough to be inside the park, stop by Front Street to browse our exclusive selections from the collection - including Charlie Hustle's famous "Heart KC" design that features the Worlds of Fun hot air balloon. These options are only available in the park and supplies are limited. Hustle, because they are going fast! 

Ride, slide, and look fly wearing the new collection by Charlie Hustle!
