Food at Oceans of Fun

When you are doing all that swimming and walking around, it’s a guarantee the kids will get hungry. Oceans of Fun has a variety of food options that include chicken fingers, pizza, Subway, and well-seasoned fries. There’s always another choice, bring a picnic! Outside food is not permitted in the park, but you are invited to enjoy the designated picnic areas. Make sure if you leave the park and plan to return to ask for an Admissions Ambassador for a re-entry voucher at the admissions building.

Stroller and Wheelchair Accessibility

Being able to move freely with ample accessibility is very important. Strollers are sometimes an extension of a mom’s reach, so having ramps and wider walkways will make strollers, scooters, and any other personal motorized mobility devices a part of the Oceans of Fun family experience. The park has done an incredibly good job of implementing wide walkways throughout the park.


When I think of public bathrooms my first thought is-is this clean? Not only are the bathrooms clean, but they are also spacious, and have showers! The space offers privacy and is easily accessible.


I spent the day with my 8-year-old and 16-year-old daughters at Oceans of Fun. I was very pleased with how both of my girls enjoyed all the aspects of the park together. Even though we have an age gap they played and hung out together all day! I call that a major MOM WIN!!! The girls enjoyed Paradise Falls. This tropical oasis of endless water fun kept the girls busy for hours. There are slides, buckets, and geysers, throughout the play area. Predators’ Plunge is for thrill-seeking parkgoers. This attraction has loops, heights, and high speeds that will get your heart racing. Coconut Cove is the best place to go after those high-energy rides. It’s a nice mixture of playful pockets and an area of tranquil relaxation. Overall Oceans of Fun has rides that you can enjoy no matter your age or level of thrill-seeking, you can check out all their attractions here.


When making your summer plans be sure you add Oceans of Fun to the top of the list so you don’t miss out on all the aquatic adventures they have to offer.

I'm Sherita! I am married to my BFF Scott and we have 5 awesome kiddos. We are a blended family, and every day is an adventure in our home. I was born in Kansas City and raised in Colorado Springs for part of my childhood. After some moving around and life changes. I decided to come back home, best decision I have made! We call North Kansas City home and we absolutely love it. Its the small-town feel within the big city. When I am not taking my kids somewhere, or knee-deep in laundry I enjoy crafting, bible journaling, being involved in my kids' schools, and thrift store shopping! So basically I am busy crafting, momma who loves God and a good deal! Nice to meet y'all.
