Fun Spot ready to break ground on roller coasters in Orlando

Posted Monday, August 13, 2012 10:20 AM | Contributed by Jeff

The Orlando attraction known for go karts and no admission fee is ready to expand three-times its current size. Fun Spot Action Park is on its way to becoming Fun Spot America. By Labor Day, Fun Spot expects to break ground on two major roller coasters, including a GCI named White Lightning, a host of new rides and a new entrance building.

Looks like a lot of fun.

I wonder why steel is used for the supports in some cases. Cost? Environment? I would imagine steel is more expensive initially, but doesn't require as much continual replacement as wood? I guess it all depends on how the numbers pan out.

Wow that's an enormous expansion. I like the 50s retro theme and their focus on jamming as many rides as possible into that plot of land, it's like a carnival.

Anytime Miss Liberty shows up its all right with me. I hear the plans for a less tall version of Windseeker were scrapped. I wonder why that is?
I stopped by that place one evening just to browse and liked to die trying to get back out and down I-Drive. If they start drawing big crowds adding to that traffic nightmare, I hate to think. The park's in a weird place, kinda.
But good luck, I hope it's a success. Weird that it's Orlando's first and only woodie, but that would be true.

I'm looking forward to this Woodie. Across the Street is Camilla's Brazilian Restaurant, an all-you-can-eat-Buffet, you can stuff yourself silly for less than 15 bucks. Next door is a Brazilian Supermarket where you can get that wonderful little Nectar of the Gods called Guarana!

It will be a welcome addition to Orlando. Let's just hope they have the resources and interest to take care of it. How many great woodies have become unrideable because of a lack of upkeep?
