Are you looking for the perfect summer getaway but worried about the heat? Look no further than Kansas City’s own Worlds of Fun! If the weather calls for a heat advisory on your next visit to the park, put to good use some of these great tips to make sure you have a safe and FUN day.
10) Get Under Shade
One of our favorite parts about visiting Worlds of Fun is how shaded the entire property is, which helps keep temperatures cooler. While the high humidity may be unavoidable, by making sure you walk the paths below the trees, you will inherently help curb some of the heat.
Or check out one of our favorite shaded spots in the parks, Dinosaurs Alive.
9) Step Into the Air Conditioning
Want a free cool-me-down? If the heat is getting to you and you need a break, take advantage of this great freebie at Worlds of Fun. Just step inside at any of the restaurants, shops, or shows and take advantage of the cooler air.
On a busy day you might need to be patient, but grab a cozy chair at Caribou Coffee and enjoy the air conditioning while people watching.
8) Wind in your Hair
If you are visiting Worlds of Fun, our best guess is you are there to take in a thrill ride (or ten). So get on board a roller coaster Like the Patriot or Mamba, or even SteelHawk and soar in the sky while enjoying the cooler breeze against your face.
Our personal favorite is the classic Worlds of Fun Railroad, which takes guests on a journey around the park in an open-air, but shaded train car.
7) Go Cold
Stop at one of the various ICEE stands throughout Worlds of Fun to enjoy a flavored frozen drink, sure to drop your temperature by a couple of degrees.
Or find the Kona Ice cart in Planet Snoopy and make your own snow cone.
6) Oceans of Fun
Nothing is better than spending the day at the pool, and Oceans of Fun offers tons of great opportunities to get wet.
While in Oceans of Fun, be sure to check out the Worlds of Fun Food Truck, which offers some AMAZING chef created street style tacos.
5) Get Dipped
The Double Dip Ice Cream and Gelato stand in the Americana section of Worlds of Fun offers a variety of frozen treats to soothe your soul.
4) Go Big or Go Home
Consider getting one of the parks signature funnel cakes topped with soft serve ice cream. Big enough to share or indulge on a park bench all by oneself.
3) Lotion Up
Nothing will ruin your day faster than a sunburn. Be sure to apply plenty of sun protection throughout your day which protects your skin.
2) Two Words
1) Stay Hydrated
Always one of the most important tips to surviving a day at Worlds of Fun is to ensure you drink plenty of liquids. In addition to requesting a free cup of water from any of the food and beverage stands, if you purchased a refillable mug, be sure to skip the soda several times a day and fill up with cold ice water. This will help keep you hydrated, as well as quench any immediate need to eat.
