Fun Spot America has offered great a entertainment value in Orlando since 1997 when the first of two locations opened. The International Drive location go-kart tracks became a famous attraction for local residents and tourists alike. A second location on Highway 192 in Kissimmee opened in 2007 with other rides, such as the SkyCoaster. Both locations offer plenty of arcade games, thrill rides and family fun.
The family-owned and operated amusement parks have used the tag line, “It’s HUGE!” for years. Now more than ever, that statement rings true. Their International Drive location has recently expanded from 5 acres to 15 acres with even more room for growth. This expansion includes a food court, new flat rides, a new go-kart track and two new roller coasters.
Fun Spot America Highlights
Fun Spot America has bragging rights in a couple areas. For one, the Kissimmee location SkyCoaster ride is the tallest in the world at 300 feet. The Orlando location’s SkyCoaster is second at 230 feet. This thrill ride provides a great view of the attraction area, as you are lifted high up into the air. Hang on! You’ll be swinging and swaying as you drop down to your original location.
Secondly, the White Lightning roller coaster is Orlando’s only wooden coaster. It is a steep, twisting ride with drops and plenty of airtime. Located at the International Drive location, it is paired with another coaster called Freedom Flyer, a suspended steel roller coaster with inverted rolls. Kissimmee’s location has plenty of thrill rides too. Included in their lineup is the Rockstar Coaster that contains sharp tight corners producing plenty of G-forces. One ride found at Kissimmee and not Orlando is the fun Bull Ride. Perfect for the cowboy-wanna-be in your group.
