KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Those waiting with bated breath for the opening day of Worlds of Fun’s Zambezi Zinger ride will need a little more patience.

The park announced Wednesday morning that the ride will not be ready for the previously announced First Rider Expedition on Thursday, May 25.

Zambezi Zinger is almost ready to go, we just need some more time to get everything ready. Our teams are working through final testing on the new steel-wood hybrid coaster. We look forward to announcing the new opening date soon, along with the rescheduled Season Passholder experience on Zambezi Zinger. We promise it will be worth the wait!
