Worlds of Fun, Kansas City, MO

One the things that I like to do the most is to get a bunch of friends and go and have a fun day at a park.  For this trip Andy, Brian and I met up in St. Louis at Greg's house before heading out to World's of Fun. 

Here's Brian at 4:30am.  He looks a bit tired because we were playing with my Wii until 1:30am and then we had to wake up a few hours later in order to head west to Kansas City and get to Worlds of Fun for opening.  By the look on his face I don't think he's a morning person.  Not to worry though as the sight of Mamba on the horizon brought a grin to all of our faces.

The last time I had been to a park was mid-June so I was really needing some serious coaster time.  It turned out that we picked the perfect day to make a trip as we had gorgeous weather and thankfully no one was at the park partly due to a Kansas City Chiefs home game.

The last, well and only time I had been to Worlds of Fun previously was when Mamba was brand new back in 1998.  Since then the park added a Boomerang which I honestly was not that excited about and Patriot which is a custom inverted coaster designed by Bollinger & Mabillard.  Being a custom B&M inverted with a fantastic layout and not just another Batman clone I was psyched to take Patriot for a ride.
