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 Services. 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.

To ensure that all guests have a fair opportunity to enjoy a ride as quickly as possible, line jumping is not allowed at Worlds of Fun or Oceans of Fun. Line jumping, regardless of the reason, may lead to ejection. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.
We define line jumping as:
Cutting in front of other guests who are already in line;
saving a place for someone;
or leaving a line, then attempting to re-enter at the same point.
Since this includes using restrooms or purchasing food or drink, we suggest you make all stops before you enter the line.
If you plan an active day of riding rides, we suggest that you bring into the park only items that can be safely secured in cargo pockets, a waist pack or a zipping jacket pocket. To secure loose articles, a cargo pocket must fasten with a velcro or button flap or a zipper, a waist pack should fasten around the waist and have a zipper closure, and a jacket pocket must have a zipper closure.

For safety reasons, purses, backpacks, beverage containers or any other loose articles may not be taken on most rides at Worlds of Fun. These items may be left in a locker, your vehicle, with a non-rider, or at the owner's risk on the ride platform. However, Worlds of Fun is not responsible for items lost, damaged or stolen.
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.
Guests may bring unopened bottles of water into the park. However, for everyone's safety, guests are not permitted to bring coolers, food, or other drinks into either park.
