Worlds of Fun
Kansas City, Missouri
Prowler Construction Tour
March 1, 2009
Bond and I have been suffering the off season blues so when we found
out that Worlds of Fun was having a construction tour of their new coaster
we decided to jump on it and get out of the house. So we reserved
a hotel room, hopped in the car and headed west. After a night of
early season coaster riding at Zonkers (a photo update of that coming soon)
in the Kansas City area we were off to Worlds of Fun for the construction
The tour didn't start until noon so we decided to drive around the park
and take a look at it's coasters like Mamba.
The mist under Mamba's turnaround puzzled me until I remembered that Worlds
of Fun sits above the Hunt SubTropolis which is a massive underground warehouse
that fills an old limestone mine. The mist was from one of the Subtropolis'
Bond was more than a bit excited and ready to go. I mean snow and
coasters what more could a kid ask for.
