Oceans of Fun is a tropically-themed water park that opened on May 31, 1982, in Kansas City, Missouri, to celebrate Worlds of Fun's 10th year anniversary. At the time it was opened it was the largest water park in the world. It is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. Oceans of Fun is adjacent to the Worlds of Fun amusement park.
On August 31, 2012, Oceans of Fun announced the largest-ever expansion in 2013. It was also announced that Worlds of Fun will no longer be separately gated and be combined with Worlds of Fun. A new slide complex, 65 feet (20 m) tall will also be built including 6 new slides. The water park will be completely renovated and construction will begin in Fall 2012.
