KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Campout, countdown, then coasters! Opening Day at Worlds of Fun is always a special time, but with the second annual Opening Day Campout, fans anticipating the park opening can count it down together at the park's overnight party! The all-nighters will be rewarded by the park with huge perks including $14.99 admission, a private ride session on the Prowler roller coaster, free food, and fun activities.
As the sun sets on Friday, April 15, the fun begins for anyone attending this free activity when the official line for the event begins to take shape. The park's front gate area will be home to tents, sleeping bags, blankets, and fans ready to countdown the hours until the park opens for 2011. Worlds of Fun staff members will be on hand to provide the fun with prize drawings, snacks, and contests.
Throughout the night, fans will anxiously be awaiting sunrise, as those that stay at the park are rewarded with something better than morning coffee to wake them up, a full hour of exclusive ride time (ERT) on Prowler roller coaster before the park opens. Plus, during the ERT session, the park will provide a free breakfast for the night owls ready to conquer the park all Opening Day. In addition, the park's Season Pass Processing Center will open early for campout guests, and Season Passes will be sold at a discounted price to campout attendees only. Those campers without a season pass can purchase a discount admission to Opening Day for only $14.99, a savings of $29 off the normal gate price.
