Worlds of Fun Reopening Protocols 

When Worlds of Fun opens, we want you to have an AMAZING day and feel safe when visiting, so we developed an extensive coronavirus reopening plan – new processes and procedures throughout the park to help reduce the spread of germs. We’re all in this together and by working together you can safely and confidently enjoy the thrills, giggles and endless smiles that only Worlds of Fun can deliver.  

This page provides you with essential information you will need before arriving at Worlds of Fun, what you’ll see and experience when you arrive and how to make the most of your visit—safely—when you get here. 

Changes from Last Season: 

  • Reservations will no longer be required or any guest.
  • Temperature checks for guests have been discontinued at the front gate. 
  • There will be no limitations to ride capacity. 
  • Guests age 5 years and older are required to wear face coverings while indoors where social distancing cannot be maintained unless actively eating or drinking. Face coverings are recommended but not required outdoors. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, and not have exhalation valves or vents, which allow virus particles to escape.
  • To improve your safety, Worlds of Fun will be going cashless this season, accepting VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express cards as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay. In addition, we'll be adding Cash-to-Card Kiosks throughout the park for those needing to convert cash into a prepaid card at no cost. Learn More

Additionally, you could be contagious if you have been in direct contact with a close relative, roommate or neighbor who has been diagnosed with the coronavirus or been told by a health care professional or employer you may have been exposed to the coronavirus. 

You do not need to complete a health assessment questionnaire prior to arriving at the park. While planning your trip to the park, please take a moment to self-assess for any potential COVID-19 symptoms. Please reschedule your visit for another day if you or anyone in your group has been exposed to or experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days. 

If everyone in your family or group has been exposed to the person who has symptoms, it’s best if everyone in your party stays home and reschedule your visit. 

When You Arrive

Guests will not be required to complete a health screen questionnaire. While planning your trip to the park, please take a moment to self-assess for any potential COVID-19 symptoms. Please reschedule your visit for another day if you or anyone in your group has been exposed to or experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days.

The health and safety of our guests and associates remains our top priority. After consulting with medical experts and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have decided to discontinue temperature checks, except where required by state or local jurisdictions. The pandemic has shown temperature screening will not be completely effective because individuals who have no symptoms associated with COVID-19, or those with mild non-specific symptoms, may not realize they are infected and may pass through screening. 

One of the things we’ve learned in this pandemic, and it’s been talked about a lot over the past year, is that a lot of people transmit the virus with no symptoms or fever. As noted above, the pandemic has shown temperature screening will not be completely effective because individuals who have no symptoms associated with COVID-19, or those with mild non-specific symptoms, may not realize they are infected and may pass through screening. As more is learned and understood about COVID-19, guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and others have evolved.

According to the CDC, it’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. The CDC also said it’s still evaluating reinfection risks. While relatively rare, reinfection has happened, and the virus continues to spread and develop variants, some of which have been more contagious than previous strains. 

Children under the age of five, guests who are indoors actively eating or drinking, indoors and socially distant, or guests who are outdoors are not required to wear face coverings. Also, under provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), guests who have disabilities that prohibit wearing a face covering will not be required to wear one.

Per our normal operating guidelines and in compliance with the CDC, we are routinely cleaning and sanitizing our restrooms throughout the day.

You may exit and re-enter the park. You will need to show your re-entry ticket to enter again. 

You are welcome to stay as long as you like until the park closes for the day.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures - for you, our other guests, and our ambassadors. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting the park. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.
