Long time, no post here.

Well, I guess Wacky Worm is being transformed into having a space-theme... interesting? I mean, I guess I saw it coming since the whole "Planet Snoopy" redesign, but will the name still be "Wacky Worm"? Hm..

LINK to the blog update

And of course it tells about some little updates around the park.

I hate double posting.

Worlds of Fun got a new site, out of nowhere I'd say. They didn't give any mention of it, but I guess it was to go along with all the other Cedar Fair sites' changes. Here's a link: Click me please.

Personally I like it. Very easy to move around and has a fresh, clean design.

Plus, click here for an update.

^There was a CF press release about it sometime ago that all CF parks would see new pages, new ordering pages, etc.

On the thrill rides page on the website, I don't understand how Mamba, Patriot, Timber Wolf, Boomerang and Spinning Dragons receive a thrill rating of 5... But Prowler is a 4? Seriously, SD is more thrilling than Prowler?!

Well, it certainly has more of a chance of making you get sick, what with all the spinning. I guess that could be deemed more thrilling.

I Love Donkeys!

Thrill ratings aren't given in comparison to other rides. They're evaluated individually against established criteria.

For Level 4
Rides that generally have medium to high speeds and/or heights with moderate to rapid
braking. Riders may encounter unexpected changes in speed, direction and/or elevation.


For Level 5 (I added the bold emphasis)

Rides that generally have one or more of the following: high speeds and/or heights,
aggressive and unexpected forces, and rapid directional or elevation change. Riders will
encounter many unexpected rapid changes in speed, direction and/or elevation.

Don't forget all of our other Live Entertainment, including two shows in the Moulin Rouge theater and the dazzling Snoopy's Hot Summer Lights. Plus, you never know who you might run into on the midways in 2012!

NEW Dining Options
Come hungry in 2012! This season we're introducing a feast of new food options, including Lemon Tree frozen yogurt, Caribou Coffee, and too many new menu items to list. We're using the freshest ingredients and offering more choices than ever before!

Fresh Looks
The park is going to look better than ever in 2012! The new Cosmic Coaster will greet guests as they enter Planet Snoopy, fresh paint and pathways give the park a fresh look, renovated restrooms offer more comfort that before! Plus, this fall, Halloween Haunt is ready to 'take you to school' with more gore than ever before!


I know the park has been working hard to provide better food and honestly of all the Cedar Fair parks I've been to (which is all except MA and VF) I can say they seem to have the best food. I can only imagine what the new choices will bring.
