Worlds of Fun to Hold Campout for Opening Day

228356_10511943249_2778_nKansas City, MO, USA (April 10, 2013) — Opening Day at Worlds of Fun is always a special time, but this year, fans anticipating the park opening can count it down together at the park’s overnight party.  The all-nighters will be rewarded by the park with huge perks including $17.99 admission, a private ride session on the Patriot roller coaster, breakfast, and fun activities.

As the sun sets on Friday, April 12, the fun begins for anyone attending this free activity when the official line for the event begins to take shape. The park’s front gate area will be home to tents, sleeping bags, blankets, and fans ready to countdown the hours until the park opens for 2013. Worlds of Fun staff members will be on hand to provide the fun with prize drawings, snacks, and trivia contests.

Throughout the night fans will anxiously be awaiting sunrise, as those that stay at the park are rewarded with something better than morning coffee to wake them up, a full hour of exclusive ride time (ERT) on Patriot roller coaster before the park opens. Plus, during the ERT session, the park will provide a free breakfast at the ride.  In addition, the park’s Season Pass Processing Center will open early for campout guests.  Those campers without a season pass can purchase a discount admission to Opening Day for only $17.99, a savings of $31 off the normal gate price.

All campout activities are free although park admission or a Season Pass is required to enjoy the exclusive Opening Day festivities. Worlds of Fun opens for the 2013 season on Saturday, April 13, and the park is open weekends only through May 5, 2013. For more information, please visit
