FUN SPOT AMERICA (Orlando, FL)
in Orlando and Kissimmee, FL
2016 - Crazy Couch - (11/27/15) Funspot America posted a photo on Twitter the other day showing off their new Crazy Couch ride from Skyline Attractions being delivered to the North I-Drive location.
(11/19/15) According to a post made to Twitter, the first of Skyline Attractions' new Crazy Couch rides has already been sold to Fun Spot America. If I had to guess, it will likely be delivered sometime after IAAPA ends. Speaking of Fun Spot, it is also worth mentioning that the Freedom Flyer has been making special runs during the first couple nights of IAAPA with a temporary installation (Nov. 16-19, 2015, after 6pm) of the VRCoaster system in a few select seats. To ride it however, you have to get a ticket from the Mack Rides booth at IAAPA. You can see a video of it below.
???? - Future Expansion - (7/23/15) According to NewsPlusNotes, Fun Spot America is preparing to begin an expansion on the attached available property near the Gator Spot to create an "Old Florida District" themed area that would feature a dark ride, log flume, a new family spinning ride as well as a new coaster that will be taller than the others, but also shorter.
???? - Fun Spot Waterpark - (1/21/13) According to a quick news update from the Orlando Sentinel, Fun Spot America has purchased an additional 8 acres of property on Grand National Drive next to its currently property, to be used for a future expansion. I know the Phase 2 expansion plans for Fun Spot America was to add a small waterpark area, so I can only imagine these additional 8 acres might be added on to that project area.
(11/28/11) Orlando Parks News has dug up an article reporting that Fun Spot has decided to use their new land next to the original Orlando location (Fun Spot America) to create the new Fun Spot Waterpark with their partners at SplashTacular. They claim at the park will be loaded with next-generation waterpark attractions that you wont find anywhere else in Orlando when it opens in 2013.
One such new slide concept is Splash Rally, a new take on the “racer” slide concept. 360 Rush is a new take on the bowl slide concept, where they drop two sliders into the bowl from opposite ends at the same time so they can chase each other around. They also have a Double BowlsEye… a double-rider raft take on the 360 Rush concept.
