Fun-Plex began as “The Kart Ranch” in the late seventies with just a go-kart track. This was soon followed by a miniature golf course and a few pinball machines. As years progressed, the amusement park took on its current name of “Fun-Plex.” In the 1980’s, major expansion took place with rides such as the slick track, bumper boats, and bumper cars. The newly added rides, along with the Motion Ocean and two 5-story Typhoon water slides, made Fun-Plex the largest ride and water park in Nebraska.
Since then, many more attractions have been introduced to provide fun for the whole family. The Lazzzy River was added to the water park to offer a way for guests to relax during the hot summer days, and specialty concession areas were extended to offer a wide variety of fun carnival style fare for everyone. Additional rides like the Chaos and Rock-O-Ride, and the classic Tilt-A-Whirl were also added to spark the interest of those seeking a little more thrill.
In 2007, the Big Ohhhhhh!!! Roller Coaster opened at Fun-Plex, becoming the only roller coaster in the state of Nebraska. A new, larger, go-kart track was implemented, along with a brand new 18-hole miniature golf course.
2015 was a pinnacle year for Fun-Plex with the kick off a 5-million dollar waterpark expansion project. The first phase saw the addition of Makana Splash, an interactive aqua playground for families. In 2016 Fun-Plex introduced something just for the big kids, Nebraska’s Only Swim Up Bar, Breakers Bay. This attraction provides those over 21 with a private oasis within the park to relax. The Breakers Bay stage hosts live music events during hot summer nights.
With the return an all-time favorite ride, the Crazy Cars, Fun-Plex once again proves their commitment to growth and family fun in 2017. Fun-Plex has been hosting company picnics, family fun days, birthday parties and the best one day vacation in Omaha for almost 40 years! We hope to see you out this summer!
