You spoke. We listened.

In addition to the all-new Cotton Blossom BBQ restaurant and the variety of new dining locations coming this season, our culinary team will be introducing several healthier menu items throughout the park. From health-conscious guests to vegans and vegetarians, we’ve added more delicious options to fit almost any dietary need.

Battle Creek BBQ will now be Prospector’s Burritos and Cantina, and this “build your own burrito, nachos and burrito bowl” location will feature an entirely gluten-free menu.

We will also be offering a gluten-free beer, Martin City Brewing’s Yoga Pants.

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.

Vegan Dining Options at Worlds of Fun

For those living the vegan lifestyle, you’ll find notable options at the following dining locations:

  • Auntie Anne’s – Classic pretzel, cinnamon nuggets, cinnamon pretzel
  • Cotton Blossom BBQ – Fresh fruit
  • Big Jacks and Coca Cola Marketplace – Kettle corn and cotton candy
  • Cinnabon – Select items can be made vegan
  • Prospectors Burritos and Cantina – Burrito bowls
