Ranking Says Worlds of Fun Better than Six Flags (and It’s Wrong)
There are very few topics more controversial than amusement parks. Say that one is better than another and you're almost certainly gonna start a fight. Prepare to battle then as a new ranking claims that Worlds of Fun in Kansas City is a better amusement park than Six Flags in St. Louis.
To be clear, this isn't me saying that Worlds of Fun is a better place to have fun than Six Flags. No way. This is a new ranking from MSN. Admittedly they're a pretty major website so I pay attention to what they think. They just rated the Top 9 Amusement Parks in Missouri. Here are their top 3:
It's worth noting that The Water Zone at Mark Twain Lake came in at #9. Well done.
I have spent some quality time at Worlds of Fun, Six Flags and Silver Dollar City in Missouri over the years and my ranking would differ. Here's my top 3:
I am a coaster person which is why I prefer Six Flags over Silver Dollar City. I only really liked a couple rides that I remember at Worlds of Fun and one of those is gone now. I miss you Orient Express.
One more thing to add. If we were rating atmosphere, Silver Dollar City would be #1 for me. Hard to beat that Ozarks feel in Missouri. Yee haw. Six Flags is almost too much like a tiny city to me now as it always feels congested. Can someone find a time machine so we can go back to the 1980's when there weren't always a zillion people there?
