Schlitterbahn Kansas City

Welcome to Schlitterbahn Kansas City

Let's head on in

Let's check out the slide tower

This is the Black Knight - completely enclosed and dark tube slide

Banzai Pipeline

The third is Wolf Pack

These slides are going to be popular

Here you can see where the future expansions will go

Time to check out the Torrent River

That big thing on the rights makes waves for the river

Here comes the wave

This is the longest Torrent River in the States

Heading down the Raging River to our next ride

Lots of fun little rapids heading down the river

This is probably my favorite river in the park right now

The cool part our next ride is that you get to queue in the water

A conveyor belt carries you to the top of the Storm Blaster

The Storm Blaster uses water to blast you up the hills

Here you can see the hills of Storm Blaster

The slide ends with an double helix

The lower river is called the Crystal River and is more of a slow river

The park has a heated swim up bar pool

Kinder Haven has lots of smaller slides for the kids

Here's a few more

Finally there is a Pirate Ship play area.

It was a great day at the 'Bahn

Coaster Mayhem IV (WOF)


Welcome to Coaster Mayhem 2009 at Worlds of Fun

The morning started off with ERT on Patriot

We had numerous laps with minimal waiting

Next we gathered to go on a backstage tour

This year's tour was Prowler

With Prowler being mostly out of view in the park...

It's a lot of fun to get to roam around it's track on these tours

It's really pretty impressive looking back here

Thanks to Brandon Stanley for taking us on this tour

Time to head back to the park

We went and did our ERT on Wacky Worm next

This coaster is usually "off limits" to adults, so this ERT session is fun

This year at lunch, they had a funnel cake eating contest

There was also a Q&A session that was pretty cool

Next we got a behind the scenes look at the new Haunt maze

A look at the new construction

Going down into the new Haunt

This is going to look very different this Fall

Night ERT was on Prowler and was amazing.
Thanks for a great day, Worlds of Fun!
