Fun Spot America Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I remember when most of us (including myself) were one-hundred percent convinced that Fun Spot's coaster was going to be that Big Fun design that GCI has been showing off at the shows.

I hope this opens up a market for GCI to smaller parks. I would love to see more little guys like this pop up all over the place. This thing looks like it hauls too.

Well if you add Beech Bend and Celebration City to the list, this is the third small park they've made a coaster for, and while I haven't ridden Ozark Wildcat (and never will), Kentucky Rumbler is pretty damn good. If this turns out to be as good as it looks, it seems like they do some of their best work for the little guys.

^If anything, I would almost compare White Lightning to El Toro at Freizeitpark Plohn in terms of being a tiny little coaster for a small park. I hardly think GCI is opening up new markets with this one, they've been working with small parks for quite some time.

That was the news that was going around IAAPA that year. It's very possible that perhaps it DID start out as a Big Fun and then ended up being this design.

I'm not sure I'd actually call Plohn a "small park" - I mean, sure, while it's no Six Flags or anything, but it's on par with a park like Tripsdrill, Fort Fun, or many of those other European parks which cover quite a bit of acreage with a wide variety of attractions. http://www.freizeitpark-plohn.de/de_DE/Themen/Attraktionen.html

 

Sure, it's "small" in the sense that it doesn't have a lot of big rides, it's family owned, and has attraction geared mostly for families, but Plohn is probably the size of most Legoland parks.

Awwwww! That's not fair. You know I am 47 days FB sober. I get my 50 day chip on Monday. Damn it! Now I have to rely on the masses to decide my fate.
