Here are some ways you can get a discount on tickets to Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun during the 2018 season.
FYI, Oceans of Fun is open May 25-September 3.
Buy your tickets online in advance: This year, the park is again offering an “Everyone Pays Kids’ Price” ticket for $39.99; it’s available through October 28. That deal will save you $22 per adult ticket. Junior (under 48″ tall)/Senior tickets (62+) are available for $39.99 all season if you buy them online. They’re $42 at the gate, so you’ll still save $2 per ticket.
If the “Everyone Pays Kids’ Price” isn’t available when you want to go, it’s still much cheaper to buy your tickets online. An online “Any Day Admission” ticket is $46; the gate price is $62. So buying online will save you $16 per ticket.
Buy a two-day pass: A two-day pass is $59.99 online; $67 at the gate. This option will save you up to $62, so it’s like getting two days for the price of one (if you were paying gate price) or getting a second visit for only $13 when you buy online. The pass can be used on any two public operating days in 2018 (so you don’t have to use it two days in a row) through October 28. It does have to be used by the same person each time, and it’s not valid for WinterFest.
Buy a season pass: If you’re going to visit more than a couple of times this year, you might want to consider buying a season pass. The cheapest option (Silver Pass) is $114, but that doesn’t include parking, which is at least $15 per visit, and it’s only valid through labor Day. You’d be better off paying $126 for the Gold Pass ($117 for a renewal). It does include parking, plus food and merchandise discounts and other perks. And it’s valid for the entire season, including Halloween Haunt and WinterFest. They’ll let you pay it off in six payments.
Show your military credentials: Active-duty U.S. military personnel, reserve, or retired military (with honorable or medical discharge) and government issued ID get FREE admission on Memorial Day (Monday, May 28, 2018), Independence Day (Wednesday, July 4, 2018), and Labor Day (Monday, September 3, 2018). You can also get a discount on tickets for up to six family members on those holidays. Worlds of Fun also offers admission for $42.99 to active military personnels and their families during the regular season.
