First Ever Winter Fest!

For the first time ever, Worlds of Fun has opened their gates for winter fun! And by winter, I almost mean summer because it was 75 degrees yesterday when we visited. 

The park is decorated with thousands of lights and a 7foot Christmas Tree that is gets "turn on" via the giant switch every night at 5:30.  So many lights with different themed and hundreds of photo opportunities for that perfect holiday card.  There are shows every hour with all your favorite songs, rides, ice skating, cookie decorating, letters to Santa, photos with Santa, hot chocolate, rides and so much more! 

The ice skating and cookie decorating are extra, but the giant cookies and the sweetest Mrs. Claus ever are well worth it! *pro-Mom tip, decorate the cookies at the very end or at least when you are finished with the rides, because they come in a box that you will have to carry around!  Tickets for admission start at $25, but you can purchase other tickets that are all inclusive and have meals too. *pro-Mom tip - buy online and save a little money, especially on parking. 

There are so many characters waling around and wanting to take pictures, quite a few rides open and all of Snoopy's Play Place and cool petting zoo.  I would say it's best to get there as close to 5 o'clock as possible.  That way you could do the merry go round or another ride and be right up front for the tree lighting at 5:30.  It's fun for all ages and not to missed this year! 

*Disclosure: I was given tickets for admission, but all thoughts are mine as always.  If you have any doubts about if it's worth, my 18 year old (who doesn't like much of anything) said it was fun!!!
