Worlds of Fun will soon break ground on a 9,000 square foot restaurant that will seat more than 300 guests, making it the largest dining facility in the park. Scheduled to open in spring 2019, Boathouse Grill will provide visitors with an enhanced dining experience in an outdoor setting with views of some of the park’s most popular rides.
“With the recent addition of our executive chef Wesley Boston, the culinary team has continuously found ways to elevate the park’s food offerings,” said Tony Carovillano, general manager of Worlds of Fun. “Now with a new flagship dining location, Boathouse Grill will help us continue these tremendous strides by creating a dining experience that is as memorable as our rides.”
The menu at Boathouse Grill showcases an array of fan favorites like authentic Kansas City barbecue, rotisserie chicken, a selection of homestyle sides and desserts, and healthy options like salads and fresh vegetables. The restaurant will feature porch-style seating, and a patio where guests may sip a craft beer while enjoying views of the Patriot roller coaster and SteelHawk swings. Located in the Americana section of the park, its name, architecture and theming pay tribute to Worlds of Fun’s history and the three iconic boats that welcomed guests when the park first opened in 1973. Boathouse Grill will be included in the park’s dining plans.
