  • Nordic Chaser: first ride

    Hard to believe that the Friday was the first time that I rode the new ride for 2018 at Worlds of Fun — The Nordic Chaser. But I have been watching it all season.  When it was first announced, the pictures made it look like a kiddie ride. So why was it in the Scandinavia […]

  • A Blast of the Past #147: Snoopy’s Hot Summer Lights at Worlds of Fun

    For several summers Worlds of Fun had a light show called “Snoopy’s Hot Summer Lights.” It was good the first few years, then sort of faded.  As I recall, there was sound with it too, and that improved as the years went on. They did a better job of eliminating overlapping sound zones to prevent […]

  • A Look Ahead — Father’s Day and beyond

    Trying to put together the list of upcoming events. It is currently skewed to very few things immediate and more things further out.

  • WinterFest: Lighting the Tree

    Last weekend was the first weekend of WinterFest at Worlds of Fun.  We weren’t able to get out to experience it until Sunday evening, but it was certainly a well-developed event. Several items were still in the process of being set up, but that did not distract from the overall festive impact of the time. […]
