The Orlando amusement company said it has purchased 10 acres behind the existing Fun Spot Action Park, bordering the park, Grand National Boulevard and Touchstone Lane.

A while back I heard they were looking at getting a Gravity Group woodie. This would certainly be in line with that. ;)

This is the Fun Spot up by Universal (Kirkman area). The *other* Fun Spot (Kissimmee) next to THE Skycoaster is the one that had the Double Wheel and is in the process of re-constructing the spinning mouse from Cypress Gardens...

Speaking of skycoasters, the article says the expanding Fun Spot is considering adding one. I wonder if they'd build the long rumored 500 foot model, or scoop up several of the used ones that are available.
