Want to release your inner “Rock” or, if you’re of a different vintage, your inner “Hasselhoff?”

You can go totally “Baywatch” and not even leave town.

Oceans of Fun splashes into the new season starting today, Friday May 26, at 11:00 a.m.

As always, there is soggy fun for everyone.

Paradise Falls for the little water wingers.

Predators’ Plunge for the older drippy daredevils.

And, of course, everything in between…17 wet, wild rides and attractions.

If dry land fun is more your style, it’s still one ticket price for two parks: Worlds and Oceans.

This happens to be an extra-special day at the parks, according to Eric Burke, manager of communications.

It was 44 years ago today, May 26, that Worlds of Fun opened the gates for the very first time.



Also, on Memorial Day, the park wants to thank the men and women who serve or have served our country in the armed forces.

Admission is free on Monday for those heroes.  All you need to do is show a valid government-issued ID.

So, grab your swimming suit and flip-flops and head for the water.

Please, don’t run…but if you do, how about in slow motion…”Baywatch” style?
