Cotton Blossom BBQ

At 9,036 square-feet, Cotton Blossom BBQ is the largest dining location at Worlds of Fun. The menu incorporates an array of items, including authentic Kansas City barbecue, rotisserie chicken, a selection of homestyle sides and desserts, as well as healthier options like salads and fresh vegetables.

Cotton Blossom BBQ is located in the Americana section of the park. Its name, architecture and theming pay tribute to Worlds of Fun’s history and the three iconic boats that opened with the park in 1973. The facility features porch-style seating and a patio with views of the roller coaster Patriot and SteelHawk, a 301-foot tall circular swing attraction.
