I’ve had a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass every year since 2008, I’ve looked at all the parks this pass includes and thought one day I’d like to visit every single one of them. Well since we were in Missouri, Worlds of Fun a Cedar Fair park was a no brainer. After this visit I have only two more Cedar Fair parks to visit before I can say I’ve been to every single one. Worlds of Fun is not a big park but it’s not a small one either, it’s a nice medium size park with a very sizable water park which I’ll cover in another post. Well let’s get to it and check out Worlds of Fun home to Prowler, Patriot, and Mamba!
Mamba was a fun coaster but I was expecting a little more, I had heard it was the best of the three Morgan Cedar Fair hyper coasters but nothing really stood out to me on it. I think the way back to the station could have been so much more, there was not enough airtime for my taste. Not comparable to Magnum in any respect but I guess that’s why Magnum still holds a spot in the top ten on some lists. Check off credit #198, let’s go get #199!
I don’t really keep track of my bottom rankings for roller coasters but in recent memory this has to be the worst. To be fair I did sit in the very last seat because you know YOLO. However it was still very brutal, not an enjoyable ride in the least and it was even bumpy climbing the lift. What the hell?!?!? Absolutely horrible, this ride needs to be retracked or RMC’ed or just burned to the ground. 😛
So my first ride on Prowler was kinda ehh. To be fair however I had a headache at the time (probably from Timber Wolf) and I could feel the wooden track a lot more than I wanted to. However later in the day after taking some Tyenol and feeling better I gave Prowler another shot and boy I’m glad I did. It’s an incredible coaster with insane direction changes and it’s 100 times better at night. More on that later. For now however one of the best wooden coasters I’ve been on and really glad it was a milestone coaster for me. Won’t be forgetting this one anytime soon.
The train ride was a lot of fun, and the train robbery was a lot longer than Silver Dollar City’s version. Worlds of Fun’s was almost 20 minutes long. Now this is a lot of fun but that means if you don’t catch the train you’re gonna be waiting for awhile for the next one. Can’t deny how awesome it is though for the train robbery to happen right in front of Prowler.
Patriot was nothing spectacular but it was a really fun coaster. Not too forceful but just good old fashioned fun, some people hate on the newer B&M inverts for not having enough punch, but I enjoy them a ton. I could re ride Patriot all day long and have a blast!
Overall fun family coaster with just the right amount of spinning to not make you nauseous. Great fit for a family park like Worlds of Fun.
Wow Prowler at night time was incredible! Probably my all time favorite night coaster now, sorry move over Beast. The direction changes, the twisting, you can’t see any of it coming at night. Plus it felt so much smoother and faster at night. You can’t beat that summer breeze in your face. This ride is definitely one of a kind for nighttime. Prowler takes the spot of my number one GCI coaster and in my top five wooden coasters. Can’t say enough about how incredible this ride is at night. Must ride!
Well that’s a wrap on our day at Worlds of Fun. Very fun Cedar Fair park, it’s not the biggest or anything but it’s got a decent collection of roller coasters and a really good one in Prowler. I would come back here anytime for those night rides on Prowler. Another fun day on our tour of Missouri theme parks.
