Worlds of Fun, a popular theme park located in Kansas City, Missouri, recently announced that the theme park would close on Saturday, November 12, and Sunday, November 13, continuing this closure through Spring 2023. The complete statement, as shared on Twitter (@worldsoffun), reads:

Due to the forecasted cold temperatures this coming weekend, World of Fun will now be closed on Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13.

We cannot wait to welcome our guests back to the park for our 50th Anniversary and the grand opening of the reimagines Zambezi Zinger in Spring 2023!

See you soon!

This coming weekend, November 12 and 13, were scheduled to be the theme park’s final operating days for the season, as Kansas City, Missouri, often faces low temperatures and inclement weather during the winter.

Per Worlds of Fun’s hours and calendar website, the Park was already scheduled to completely cease operations past this weekend, being unavailable for Guests for the rest of the year and through Spring of 2023, when the Park would reopen on select weekends in April and May 2023, later resuming normal operations, opening all week long in June and July.
