Worlds of Fun: the Best Place Ever

Sorry I posted this a little late

 It was a Sunday morning, I was just packing up all my stuff to get to Worlds of Fun. I was thinking about all the fun rides I went on last year the Mamba, Boomerang, the timberwolf, prowler, etc. Boy I am going to die there, I thought. I thought about the rides again. I was almost done packing up when my mom said, “Andy, get packed up, dressed up, and let’s go!”

I zipped my pack and went and put on my shoes. I opened the garage door, got in the car, and buckled my seatbelt. On the way we picked up Renny’s dad. He talked with my mom the whole way witch left me with nothing to do. It was obviously boring. We parked the car at Gold’s Gym and waited for Renny and Clara to come out from their dance class. It felt like a million hours until they came out (one reason was that I was very bored). They changed their clothes in their van. So far this trip to Worlds of Fun isn’t going so well for me.

When we got there, we looked at all of the rides. I was pretty amazed that I forgot it was so big. I asked if I could go on the Finish Fling and Renny’s mom said, “Okay.”

The Finish Fling was a little room where you spin around so fast that you stick to the wall. When the floor goes down, that’s when you really know you’re sticking to the wall. But don’t go on it too many times, you could get a stomachache. When I was done we went on the Sea Dragon. I thought it was pretty boring at first but when I went on it, it was really fun. It looks like a Vikings’ ship that swings up high back and forth and makes you feel like you’re going to fall out of your seat into the pond beneath it (just to let you know, it kind of makes you want to wet your pants).

That was when I started chanting, “Mamba! Mamba!”

But instead we went on a roller coaster called Patriot. I was actually surprised that I liked it since I predicted that I wouldn’t. It was different than all the other roller coasters ‘cause instead of sitting in a car, you’re actually sitting in seats that hang on some bars with wheels. I have to admit, it was one of the best rides I’ve ridden on. After that again I chanted, “Mamba! Mamba!”

Instead we went on the Boomerang. I already went on it before so I knew it was really fun so I didn’t really mind. It goes up a hill and then when you hear a “Psstt” sound, you drop rapidly and go in loopity-loops. After you go around and around, you go up another hill and after you hear a “Psstt” sound, you come down rapidly (again) and do the same thing but backwards. I rode it a few times. As usual I chanted, “Mamba! Mamba!”

Finally we got to go on the Mamba. It was the fastest roller coaster in the park. It was a giant roller coaster where you go up a really steep hill and drop at 75 mph! It was also followed by a series of smaller hills. They all lift you off of your seats.

We rode on many more rides too. I loved them all. It was a great trip.

  1. Even if I had the patients you did to wait to go on the Mamba, I don’t think I would have the courage to go on it. I wish I did like roller coasters but when it comes to them I am more like the Cowardly Lion.

  2. I went to World’s of Fun once. i went with my sister so no roller coaster rides for me! 😦 I still had lots of fun anyways! 🙂

  3. I agree, every time I went on Mamba, on the really steep hill, I couldn’t even sit down!

  4. Cool! Sounds like all the waiting you had to go through prior to the trip was all worth it, right? But I would be very anxious too if I were in your shoes …

  5. Were you nervous when riding the roller coaster?
