Placemaking (WOF)

Worlds of Fun has started a series of "placemaking" projects around the park.

With Ouimet's (the chain's CEO) background, parks like Worlds of Fun (and KBF) where there is actually a theme have been enjoying upgrades like the new inside of the train depot.

Much like KBF's Ghost Town, WOF's Americana section is starting to feel more like a real place.

This former drink stand is now serves as a "hat shop" for the fictional Western Town.

Here is a peek into the shop - where you can see all sorts of hats are waiting to be "sold"

Also new to the area is this Sheriff's office and accompanying jail.

Here is the cell inside the jail.

Here is the Sheriff's desk area.

I like the additions quite a bit and hope they are just the tip of the iceberg of things to come with Ouimet at the helm of the company.
