Opening Day (WOF)

Welcome to the 2018 Season at Worlds of Fun.

Tonight is the Passholder Sneak Peek Night.

The park is celebrating 45 seasons of thrills this year.

MAMBA is celebrating its 20th season this year.  How is that even possible?

Eli is looking great this year with its new paint job.

Mustang Runner, new for 2017, is still a very popular ride.

Falcon's Flight, also new for 2017, has operational lighting now on the birds which really adds to the ride at night.

This area was completely redone this off season and looks amazing.

Patriot is still one of my favorite inverted coasters out there.

Spinning Dragons is just fun.  I wish the line moved faster.

Nordic Chaser is the new for 2018 attraction.  It really turned out nice.  I did ride it and I probably won't ride it again.  The particular motions on this style of ride don't always agree with my body.

Detonator was running both towers tonight.  This is always a fun ride.

SteelHawk was being rather moody tonight.  It decided, at least twice that I know of, to stop at the very top and then forcing the crew to lower it back down slowly.  Not sure what was going on with this ride Friday night.

Prowler was also being moody and was closed most of the evening.

Boomerang was open, but I didn't feel the need to ride it.

I was able to snap the flyers tonight.  I think the wind helped.

Pretty good Opening Night, Worlds of Fun.  Looking forward to a great season.
