What does it take to survive in the Arctic? How is the largest land carnivore able to walk on thin ice? Is polar bear fur really white? Just ask Berlin the Polar Bear! Spend the night with her to find out what hardships polar bears face as well as us if we would ever venture to the snowy north. We’ll play games and see how we stack up to a polar bear. Refuel with a quick snack and join us on a night hike through the zoo. Come face to face with some of our animals in our Animal Encounter and in the morning enjoy a continental breakfast. Dive into this overnight!
Now in the event’s third season at Worlds of Fun, WinterFest is a “can’t miss” holiday event in Kansas City.

It’s a special place to shop, eat, and begin your holiday season.
