RIDE MORE. WAIT LESS. SPEED PAST THE LINES WITH FAST LANE!
Experience the thrill of lift off when the Detonator blasts! The Detonator came to Worlds of Fun as the first of its kind in the US in 1996. Since then, riders have rocketed towards the sky on this two-towered thrill. Featuring a giant American flag at the top, no visit to the Americana section of the park is complete without a ride on this adrenaline-inducing staple the park. Must be 48" or taller to ride.
The two 12 passenger towers hurl riders 150 feet into the air at 45 mph. The feeling of 4.5 g’s is created with compressed air that launches all on board to new heights. Once at the top, experience brief weightlessness before slowly returning to land.
