Visiting Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun in 2021

The time has come for fun in 2021. Worlds of Fun opens its gates on Saturday, May 22, and Oceans of Fun waterpark opens the following weekend on Saturday, May 29. To help make the most out of your visit to our beloved Kansas City waterpark and amusement park this year, please be aware of these park updates.

Waterpark Reservations

After a yearlong hiatus, Oceans of Fun is back with the all-new Riptide Raceway, the longest mat racing water slide in the world. Reservations are required for visiting the water park this season and must be made for each member of your party prior to your visit. Waterpark reservations can be made here. Once you’ve entered the Season Pass number, Pre-K Pass number or daily ticket number for each party, the reservation will be automatically added to your pass(es) or ticket(s).

You do not need a reservation to visit Worlds of Fun.

At this time, guests will be limited to holding one waterpark reservation. Because we are operating with a limited capacity, this has been put in place to ensure our Season Passholders have fair access to reservations and visits to the waterpark. It also helps us manage our capacity more easily.

Face Coverings & Safety Protocols

You will need to pack a mask for each member of your party that’s six years and older. Face coverings are not required when outdoors unless 6-feet of social distancing is not possible. Face coverings are required to be worn in all indoor venues, including restrooms, dining locations and shops.

Many of last year’s COVID-19 policies remain in place to help ensure ambassador and guest safety, and both parks will continue to run at a limited capacity. Social distancing markers and hand sanitation stations remain throughout the park.

We’re Going Cashless

It’s safer, more secure and faster. (And helps promote contactless transactions). That’s right, we’re going cashless in 2021.

Worlds of Fun, Oceans of Fun and all of our in-park locations will accept debit cards, credit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay. No card? No problem. We have Cash-to-Card kiosks that can transfer your cash to a card – no fees – and you can use it anywhere, not just in the parks.

There are 4 kiosks at Worlds of Fun and 2 kiosks at Oceans of Fun.

  • Worlds of Fun Locations – Front Gate Ticket Sales, Front Gate Lockers, Cotton Blossom, Coasters
  • Oceans of Fun Locations – Front Gate Ticket Sales, Bender’s Surf Shop

We’re ready for an exciting season of safe, fun family fun – especially with the return of Oceans of Fun, Grand Carnivale and Halloween Haunt. Season-long access is available via a Season Pass – now just $89 and includes free parking, discounts and more.

Hope to see you on the midways!
