After spending the day conquering acres of thrilling rides at Kansas City’s amusement park, relax and enjoy the warm summer breeze surrounded by stunning light. The sparkling beauty of Worlds of Fun at night comes alive with the addition of Snoopy’s Hot Summer Lights, an immersive light and sound experience starring everyone’s favorite PEANUTS characters and their summertime adventures, new in 2010.
Featuring over 2 million LED lights, the colorful canopy invites guests to explore a breathtaking display the entire family will enjoy. The world-famous Woodstock leads a fun-filled adventure through the Africa and Europa sections of the park, which is host to the PEANUTS characters enjoying the outdoors. Along the lighted walkway, larger than life replicas of Snoopy and the gang invite guests to interact in displays and games featuring summertime favorites like picnics, campfires, and sports.
Read the entire press release from Worlds of Fun.
Starlight Experience went over pretty well at CP last year. I'm sure it'll be a nice addition to WOF.
I was going to say the same thing. If it wasn't a 13 hour drive, I would go check it out. As it is though, my travel time is already booked up this year. Plus, I was just there last year.
way to make all the parks the same...
But, coasterinsider, if it is popular at one park, it will probably be popular at another park. Cedar Fair parks are so far apart from each other that I'm pretty sure that the majority of people will welcome the attraction as unique. Not everyone travels more than a few hours for an amusement park experience.
You would think that a "coaster insider" would look at the big picture and not be upset that one park is installing the same attraction that another park in their chain already has.
...I mean, more than one CF park has a scrambler, for example.
Did you just point out the fact that someone else is not looking at the big picture? Mr. no front of line pass :)

Starlight Experience was a total win. I was skeptical, but it really is pretty impressive. It's not Hollywood Studios Osborne Family Christmas, but it's still pretty amazing. I don't blame them at all for bringing something similar to another park.
So, CF should not add any roller coasters to any of its parks because it will make "all the parks the same?"Last edited by Captain Hawkeye, Monday, March 1, 2010 12:48 AM
Ridem, Big picture or not, I still believe that paying to be allowed to cut the line is wrong, even after all these years. Lets take it to another thread sometime. :)
My point exactly, Hawkeye.
Starlight experience is an attraction. Even parks from different chains build some of the same kinds of attractions.
After all the good words that have been said about it, I am excited to see Starlight myself, but probably at Kings Island, because I frequent that park more.
Has Kings Island announced a light show like this yet?
Just pointing the irony out is all..
It should be pointed out that it sounds like this is a different show from the Starlight Experience.
Yes, you heard me right. It's a different show. At Cedar Point, as you walk down the Frontier Trail, the Starlight Experience takes you through four distinct seasons, with winter actually being perhaps the most impressive (complete with snow!). According to the summery, the Worlds of Fun version is going to focus on a variety of summertime activities, so while it's still a walk-through light display, it is a completely different show from the one they put in at Cedar Point.
So, no, they aren't making all the parks the same. And that's the opinion of someone who walked out of the Africa section of the park to see an expanse of white concrete dotted with a thousand trash cans, with a red-tracked silver-structured 200-foot steel coaster above and a "Coasters" restaurant (complete with photos of the Blue and Mean Streaks) below, who decided that he had found the "Cedar Point" themed section of Worlds of Fun...
