The largest theme park in the Midwest opens later this month for its 49th season with the release of an exciting lineup of special events! Worlds of Fun opens Saturday, April 30 with six special events scheduled. Following Worlds of Fun Opening Day, the summer features the Ocean of Fun Opening Day, the return of 4th of July fireworks with Celebrate America!, and Grand  Carnivale. The fall offers family-friendly fun with The Great Pumpkin Fest and the return of terror that is Halloween HAUNT. All events are included with park admission.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide our guests with a full season of fun once again. With more than 200 attractions at the park, we’re known for thrills, but the return of our summer events really enriches the park experience, offering something for guests of all ages through spring, summer, and fall.” - Tony Carovillano, General Manager
