Information For Guests With Disabilities

At Worlds of Fun we are proud of our reputation for accommodating guests with disabilities through our Ride Admission Policy. To continue to provide equal access for all guests, be aware that all guests with mobility impairments or ASD will now receive a Ride Boarding Pass with wait times. The Ride Boarding Pass Program allows guests to access rides at specified times via the exit ramp in order to avoid crowds and waiting in the regular queue lines.

You may be asking yourself whether Worlds of Fun is appropriate for guests with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or whether your loved one on the spectrum will be able to handle the theme park experience. Worlds of Fun has taken steps to be well-prepared to welcome and provide accommodations for all types of disabilities, including autism and related disorders.

Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun work hard to be as enjoyable and barrier free as practical. We offer several services to accommodate as many guests as possible. If the information you seek is not provided below, please contact us via our online comment form or by calling our Guest Assistance Center at (816) 454-4545.

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. 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!

Guests with casts and braces will be restricted from riding rides where the cast or brace will not fit inside the ride unit or where it will present a hazard to the guest or others. Guests with full arm (elbow restricted) and full leg (knee restricted) casts or braces are restricted from MOST rides at Worlds of Fun and most slides at Oceans of Fun. Guests with a cast should visit Guest Relations prior to entering the park for more information. All casts are prohibited on Patriot, Prowler, and Timber Wolf.

We have a limited supply of wheelchairs and electric wheelchairs available for rent (electric wheelchairs at Worlds of Fun only). Guests may also bring their own wheelchairs and electric wheel chairs. Wheelchairs can be accommodated in all restaurants, gift shops, theaters, games, arcades and restrooms (see below).

All restrooms in Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun are designed for access by disabled guests. All restrooms in both parks are wheelchair accessible excluding the Scrambler restroom and the Boomerang restroom.

Parking for guests with disabled placards is located in parking lots B and H at Worlds of Fun and in the lower level parking lot at Oceans of Fun. Please ask attendant at Toll Plaza for directions.

Guests with any type of prosthesis should not ride Detonator, Patriot, SteelHawk or Kite Eating Tree unless they can ensure the device is properly secured and will remain in place during the ride. If there is any concern of the prosthesis becoming dislodged during the ride, guests should visit the Guest Services Office at the park entrance for assistance. All leg prosthetics are prohibited on Patriot per the manufacturer.

Due to the dynamics of our rides, oxygen tanks may be restricted. Please stop by Guest Services to identify any rides that may allow your tank. Oxygen tanks may be taken into all food, merchandise, or entertainment buildings.

Service animals are always welcome at Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. A service animal is defined as a dog or miniature pony that has been individually trained to perform tasks for a person with disabilities. All service animals must be controlled with a restraint or leash at all times during your visit to Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. Upon your arrival to the park you may check in at Guest Services as only one service animal per guest is permitted and you may be asked what tasks your service animal has been trained to do. Due to the nature of most rides, service animals must remain with a non-riding member of your party throughout your day at the park as Worlds of Fun associates are not permitted to take control of a service animal. Service animals are not permitted in water attractions, wet decks, wading pools, or lazy rivers. For your convenience, a service animal relief area is located next to the Prowler Photo shop. We look forward to seeing you at the park soon!

A Supervising Companion is someone who meets all requirements to ride the ride themselves, is 14 years of age or older and demonstrates appropriate observed behavior.
