From the Kansas City Star:

Schlitterbahn couldn’t say on Thursday whether it would open its Kansas City, Kan., water park in 2019, telling The Star “we don’t have any news” when asked if and when the attraction would open for the upcoming season.

Season passes for 2019 for that park were not available for sale Thursday on Schlitterbahn’s website, while customers could make those purchases for the company’s four Texas locations.

“We offered last year, you may recall, every season pass holder was given the next season free, so there’s not as much pressure there,” Prosapio said.
