Worlds of Fun
Kansas City, MO
September 15, 2007
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.
Here's Brian and Greg hanging out by Patriot's totally cool logo.
