After almost a full day at Schlitterbahn Kansas City we were debating what to do. We knew we were going to drive right by Worlds of Fun and since we have season passes, making a quick stop was a no-brainer. What we couldn’t decide on was if we wanted to ride some roller coasters or if we should check out the water park. Well since none of us had changed out of our swim wear yet we decided on the water park. Plus Oceans of Fun has the drop capsule slides that I hadn’t had the opportunity to ride before today. This will be a short update as we were only here for a few hours and only did a few things but enjoy!
Predator’s Plunge being my first drop capsule slide I didn’t know what to expect and I’m not gonna lie I was a little scared watching people go before me. It’s not the height or the speed being the terrifying part of these slides, it’s the not knowing when that floor is gonna drop and you’re off down the slide. There is a countdown once the button is pushed and you can hear the water gushing but that does little to prepare you. Incredible start to any slide I’ve been on. Can’t recommend these enough, and I can’t wait for the day one of these type of slides is finally built in Ohio! Come on Soak City of Cedar Point or Kings Island and Wildwater Kingdom, step your games up!
At first glance the wave pool looks like nothing special but it’s pretty awesome how it’s 8 feet deep before the waves at the deep end. I can’t imagine how many saves they get on a daily basis in the deep end, with a depth that deep, more on that later. You can only start aloft for a little while before you look for the nearest raft.
So while walking around taking pictures I heard a long whistle, being a former Cedar Fair lifeguard I knew exactly what this meant. Save! Tried to get a shot of the save but didn’t quite see where it was, the wave pool is pretty big. However I did get this shot instead. 😛
Oceans of Fun was a little better than I expected and I’m glad we decided to visit for a few hours. Now can those drop slide complexes make their way up to the Cedar Fair parks in Ohio please?!?
Next up Six Flags St. Louis!
