For Worlds of Fun guests who can't wait to sample the latest food offerings each season, 2019 is going to be a great year. The park has added a new executive chef to the culinary team as well as a new restaurant! Scheduled to open next spring, Cotton Blossom BBQ will feature a bevy of new and improved menu items with accommodations for up to 316 guests.
Cotton Blossom BBQ
At 9,036 square-feet, Cotton Blossom BBQ will become the largest dining location at Worlds of Fun. The menu will incorporate an array of items, including authentic Kansas City barbecue, roastery chicken, a selection of homestyle sides and desserts, as well as healthier options like salads and fresh vegetables.
Cotton Blossom BBQ will be 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 will feature porch-style seating and a patio with views of the roller coaster Patriot and SteelHawk, a 301-foot tall circular swing attraction.
