Worlds of Fun
Kansas City, Missouri
Worlds of Fun opened in 1973, and Oceans of Fun, the adjacent water park, opened in 1982. In 1995, they were sold by Lamar Hunt and Mid-America Enterprises and were acquired by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. Worlds of Fun is themed around Jules Verne's book "Around the World in Eighty Days" and features areas themed as Africa, Americana, Europa, The Orient, Scandinavia, and the recently added Planet Snoopy. The park offers its guests more than 50 rides and attractions covering 235 acres of land. Sadly, many rides, including five coasters, have been removed from the park during its brief history:
