Introducing Riptide Raceway - New Mat Racing Water Slide Coming in 2020

Competition and thrills combine at Worlds of Fun in 2020 when Riptide Raceway debuts next summer at Oceans of Fun water park. Riptide Raceway will take guests five stories high before they speed down four side-by-side tunnels atop a soft foam mat. Riders in each lane will race more than 486 feet to be the first to reach the finish line as they make an exhilarating journey down a winding hillside, around a tight 360-degree loop and through a rapid final descent before splashdown.

This family-friendly ride has been designed to follow the natural terrain of the park’s landscape, and is the first thrill attraction added to the water park since 2013 when Oceans of Fun and Worlds of Fun were conjoined. It will replace Diamond Head, one of the park’s original water slides that opened in 1982; construction will begin this fall after Oceans of Fun closes for the 2019 season.

2020 Gold Season Passes are now available at their lowest price and include unlimited visits and free parking to Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. For a limited time, the 2020 Gold Season Pass will also include unlimited visits and free parking for the remainder of the season, including upcoming events like Halloween Haunt and WinterFest.
