FUN SPOT AMERICA (Orlando, FL)
FUN SPOT USA (Kississimme, FL)
Park News - (1/29/14) Fun Spot in Orlando will be airing a commercial on the local Orlando Fox 35 channel during the Super Bowl. They’ve shot four different versions and are having an online contest for their fans to view the ads and vote for the best one between now and Jan. 30th. One voter will also win an annual pass good at both Fun Spot parks plus a Meet & Greet with Fun Spot’s owners.
(4/29/13) A reader sent in a fun panorama picture of Fun Spot’s new White Lightning which is looking quite good. While it obviously won’t take any records for being the tallest or longest, it does remind me a bit of the Phoenix at Knoebels, which could make this one of the most fun coasters in the world. That double-up and double-down are going to be something you remember and a nice special treat for the Florida tourists.
(12/11/13) Fun Spot America has been open a few months, but is still adding small improvements all around. OrlandoParksNews has posted a new photo trip report from the new and very clean park this week, giving everyone a very clear view of what Fun Spot America has to offer.
(5/20/13) An awesome POV video of White Lightning in action has been posted to YouTube already and embedded below. The early word from those who have been lucky enough to snag a ride is that White Lightning is an incredible wooden coaster ride… quick, fun and a must ride attraction for any coaster fan visiting Orlando.
2014/2015 - 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.
