From health-conscious guests to vegans and vegetarians, we’ve added more delicious options to fit almost any dietary need.

Vegetarian Dining Options at Worlds of Fun

Our culinary team worked very hard in selecting a new vegetarian burger, and we finally landed on a delicious patty made from a blend of mushrooms, onions, brown rice, rolled oats, parsley and a hint of garlic. Veggie burgers are available at Coasters and G’Rilla Grill.

Cotton Blossom BBQ’s menu will feature a host of vegetarian options, including gourmet mac & cheese, baked beans, corn, coleslaw, fries, parfaits, brussels sprouts, fresh fruit, fresh cookies and edible cookie dough. Other vegetarian options include caesar salads, offered at Gold Rush Pizza, Just Pizza and Turkey Legs, Paradise Pizza and Subway.
