Many rides at Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun are dynamic and thrilling. There are inherent risks in riding any amusement ride. For your protection, each ride is rated for its special features, such as high speed, steep drops, sharp turns or other dynamic forces. If you choose to ride, you accept all of these risks. Restrictions for guests of extreme size (height or weight) are posted at certain rides. Due to rider restraint system requirements, guests of larger size may not be accommodated on some of our rides. This may apply, but not be limited to, guests who exceed 6’2”, or those who exceed 225 pounds, have a 40” waistline or 52” chest. Each person has different body proportions so it is not possible to list exact size and weight.

Guests with disabilities should refer to our Ride Admission Policy available at Guest Relations. Participate responsibly. You should be in good health to ride safely. You know your physical conditions and limitations, Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun do not. If you suspect your health could be at risk for any reason, or you could aggravate a preexisting condition of any kind, DO NOT RIDE!

Missouri Statute RSMO 316.230 requires that riders obey all warnings and directions regarding all rides and behave in a manner that will not cause injury to themselves or contribute to the injury of others. Failure to comply may lead to ejection from the park and is a state misdemeanor.
Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun's definition of a supervising companion is one who meets all of the requirements to ride the ride itself, is 14 years of age or older and demonstrates appropriate observed behavior.

The 2016 Guest Assistance Guide provides Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun guests with information regarding ride regulations, guest services, park policies, and special services for guests with disabilities.

Most rides and attractions remain in operation despite rain. For your safety, certain rides and attractions may be closed due to rain, lightning, high winds, extreme temperatures, maintenance, and other reasons. We re-open closed rides and attractions as soon as possible. We do not issue rain checks or refunds.
If you plan to leave and return later that day, ask the ticket taker at the re-admission turnstile to stamp your hand. Guests will not be allowed to re-enter without a hand stamp. Be sure to keep your parking receipt if you take your car from the parking lot so you can re-enter without charge. Vehicles left overnight may be towed at owner's expense.

The Carousel has only been at the Worlds of Fun since 2011, but it is the oldest ride in the park at 86 years.  While bigger and faster rides get all the attention, its attractions like the Carousel that are the heart of every amusement park.  It's a ride that families truly enjoy riding together.

In 1926, M.C. Illions meticulously carved 64 jumping horses and two chariots to create the Illions Supreme carousel, one of the most valuable carousels in the world. Known for their all wood horses with high swept manes adorned with jewels, only five original Supreme models were ever built by Illions.

Illions built the ride in 1926 for the Sesqui-Centennial Celebration held in Philadelphia. In 1927, it was moved to Birmingham, Alabama, and in the 1930's moved to Coney Island be restored. The carousel operated at Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio, from 1937 to 2007, and now has been painstakingly detailed to its original condition by Carousel Works, Inc, Mansfield, Ohio, the largest manufacturer of carousels in the world.

Worlds of Fun History

The first new addition to Worlds of Fun after the park opened came during its second year in 1974 when the 4,000-seat Forum Amphitheater opened in the Europa section of the park.  A new section opened 1976 for America's Bicentennial called Bicentennial Square.  The Scream roller coaster was also added that year. 

The 1980's saw a new waterpark open next to the park, Oceans of Fun. At the time it opened, Oceans of Fun was the largest waterpark in the world. The sub-world River City opened in Americana near the Orient. The next year saw the Scream roller coaster transformed into the USA's first stand-up roller coaster. The decade ended with the addition of a major new roller coaster, Timberwolf. The ride quickly became a favorite of park visitors and enthusiasts alike.

The early part of the decade of the 1990's was a challenging one for Worlds of Fun.  In 1995, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company purchased the park from Lamar Hunt and Jack Steadman.  Under the new ownership, thrilling attractions like the Mamba roller coaster were added as the decade came to a close.
This decade is defined by the addition of two major roller coasters.  In 2006, the Patriot roller coaster was introduced followed by Prowler in 2009.  The ride was an immediate hit, receiving the prestigious Golden Ticket for "Best New Ride of 2009" by Amusement Today, an industry publication. Prowler continues to rank as one of the top wooden roller coaster in the world in industry polls.  In 2008, Worlds of Fun celebrated its 35th anniversary season. 
The current decade began in 2010 when Worlds of Fun added an exciting new nighttime light show, Snoopy's Hot Summer Nights.  In 2011, Camp Snoopy was rethemed to Planet Snoopy and new attractions were added. That same year, the Carousel from Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio was added.

Did You Know?

In 1968, Lamar Hunt realized the need for a family theme park in the midwest and began conceptualizing what would become Kansas City's number one tourist destination. In 1969, nearly 500 acres was purchased and the site for the park was chosen, with construction beginning in 1971. The park opened in 1973 with 60 rides, shows, and attractions. Oceans of Fun followed in 1982, celebrating 10 years of Worlds of Fun.

Rae Ann has worked for Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun for two seasons as an Aquatics Attendant and a Lifeguard. After Oceans of Fun closes, Rae Ann transitions to Halloween Haunt. Last year, she acted in Zombie High and this year was promoted to Lead at CarnEvil.

She applied to be a lifeguard, because she loved visiting the park as a child and dreamed of being a lifeguard. She loves working with different people and helping others. She believes making someone else's day better is very rewarding.

She describes herself as kind of shy. The most difficult part of the job, for her, is being assertive, but she believes working at Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun has helped her come out of her shell. She advises job applicants to not be afraid to stand up for themselves, but to always be respectful toward others.

Rae Ann says working at Worlds of Fun has improved her communication skills and built her confidence in performing new jobs and responsibilities.

John has worked for Worlds of Fun / Oceans of Fun for five seasons as a Rides Associate, Cash Control Supervisor and currently is an Accounting Assistant. He understands our business and strives to make a difference every day.

What brought you to Worlds of Fun / Oceans of Fun?
I came to Worlds of Fun in 2011 in search of a job to help fund college. Initially, I worked in Planet Snoopy as a Ride Ambassador; however, I moved to Finance the next year and have remained since. My undergraduate degree was in Accounting, so this job provided good application to the things I learned in the classroom.

What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of this job was recording the revenue for the concessionaires and different stations around the park. It was interesting to observe how external factors (weather, attendance, special events) affected the revenue.

What is the hardest part about your job?
The most difficult part of the job was payroll. The work isn’t hard to comprehend, but the challenges came in trying to keep track of the work times for employees.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about applying for your job?
The job will be whatever one makes it to be. Whatever an individual puts in, is what he/she will get out of it. The opportunity to gain valuable experience is present, but it will take personal initiative to take advantage of this opportunity.

How has your work experience at Worlds of Fun helped you in your current career or how do you believe your work experience will help you in your future career?
Working in Finance has helped me understand basic principles of business operations. Having a basic understanding of Finance and Accounting is useful in any profession.
