All New Rides for a New Generation: Our Day at Worlds of Fun7:09 PM
We spent a big part of our day at Planet Snoopy. This completely separate area inside the park was full of rides geared toward tiny ones all the way up to adults. I couldn't believe how much things had changed since I was a kid. My children couldn't decide on what to ride first, so we hit the rides that were announced as new for 2016.
Among them was the Linus Launcher. Kids get to experience really flying in this ride that lets them lay down and spread their arms and legs out like birds. They went around and around and were so excited when they got off. My son said to me "I now believe that flying is the one superpower I would really like to have!"
The next ride that we had to try was the Snoopy's Space Buggies. I completely underestimated how much your tummy wobbled on this ride. The boys were amazing about bouncing up and down so much, however. This was quite sophisticated for a kids' ride!
We then tried out the Snoopy vs. Red Baron ride. My kids are such big Snoopy fans, and have done research on the real Red Baron for their homeschool. Marcus happily hopped on this ride for younger kids and put on his flying face. He giggled so much when he could pull back on the stick and control the plane!
The kids then took a ride on the Flying Ace Balloon Race that took them way up in the sky. The only issue was that my oldest son got everyone a little too dizzy when he kept spinning them around with the steering wheel. (They weren't too happy with him.)
We tried almost all of the rides in Planet Snoopy, many of them with just the younger kids, but several got the interest of the older kids, too. I love that this park not only allows bigger kids and grownups on some of the rides, but they encourage it! I like that we can stick together and do things as a family on many of the experiences here at the park. It helps us enjoy the vacation and build "together" memories.

We were also able to have a picnic lunch with Snoopy himself! Marcus didn't have to be asked twice to give the big beagle a hug.
I had really high expectations upon entering the park that day, and opening weekend met every one of them. I even won a prize at "Guess Your Age". The kids haven't stopped talking about their day of fun, and they even take out the map we picked up and reminiscence as they look at the drawings of the rides at the park.
