We are looking forward to our first visit to fun spot this summer. The only problem is that we are only going to spend an hour or two in the park (mainly for the coasters).

 

Do they sell individual ride tickets, or do you have to buy a ride band? Only thing I see listed on the website is a all day ride band, but others have said something about tickets.

^ yes, they do sell individual ride tickets. Another option you may not have been aware of is the anniversary sale they have every year. (I am assuming they will again this year.) The deal is usually on a saturday early to mid June-ish. The cost of an wrist band is the same as that years anniversary. This will be year 17, so the cost will most likely be $17. The band is good for a year and can be purchased online. Just print out your ticket and redeem at the ticket booth. This is a much cheaper option and gets you lots of re-rides.

Nothing earth shattering to report. Just a cool article on MSN today on 20 can't miss attractions in Orlando. Of course it lists all the usual suspects like Hulk, Manta , Rock N Rollercoaster, but I found it neat that the first can't miss attraction they listed was White Lightning, with a nice little write up.

I saw that too and was wondering why it was so under the radar. Looks like a great addition, tho I wish it was going to the Orlando one. BTW, This Saturday, june 11 is the 18 year anniversary bash. Tickets for both parks can be bought for 18 dollars each, and you can buy multiple tickets on site or on line. Great deal.

So, it's like that vomit-inducing contraption that Quassy got last season.

 

You're cool, Fun Spot, but I think I'll pass on that one.

I just visited the park today to do three things: play some redemption games and the KISS pinball game (that tilts too easily), ride some flats, and finally ride WHITE LIGHTNING!!! Well, I did all that, so I can die happy or just retire from riding and amusement park flying.

 

While the park has enough as it stands, we all know we'll be asking for more new attractions. I did see a grassy field that was fenced off and I couldn't help but dream what else could they put in there. Two things come to mind: a log flume and a custom made dark ride.

 

I went during the day, but I bet it's even super at night!

^I have so much love for WHITE LIGHTNING in my heart! It does me well to hear you speak of it such! Also, it's my 9 year old daughter's current favorite coaster, and we marathoned it together, so I think that's partly why I feel so fondly of it!

The last concert art they posted showed a small water park there and the log flume over where the current parking lot is with a few flat in there

Do you have to buy a Wristband/ Ticket or can you just pay per ride ?

 

You can pay per ride, but the wristband is a pretty solid deal and all of their flats run insane programs so you should ride them (especially the Paratrooper... WTF???).

Get the band, get the band. You will have so much fun and many rerides all in a short time period. White Lightning and Freedom Flyer (once in front once in back, totally dif experiences) That insane paratrooper, Enterprise, and on and on. Well worth the money.

Looks like Fun Spot have invested some serious money by installing incredibly bright LED's to line the White Lightening coaster to increase visibility. Looking GREAT in my opinion

 

The Mako Madness video on Youtube shows they chase through a rainbow pattern, would be cool to see if they can be programmed into Red, White and Blue. That would be super awesome.

 

This pic was posted on Facebook by Thrillography Photos + Commentary and the lighting looks to be almost all Blue looks absolutely awesome so I'm thinking they could also be changed to red and white or red white and blue since in your pic it's rainbow colored

And sorry for the double post but Fun Spot will now be open tonight at 6PM with limited ride availability (I'd imagine some rides like the Paratrooper were taken down), $27 wristbands and select beer on top. Why oh why don't I live closer to Fun Spot?

Is the Paratrooper ride cycle even crazier than the one at Knoebels?

 

So much crazier. I swear it almost goes upside down. Rim driven Paratroopers for whatever reason (the ones that don't ever come down and load 2 parachutes at a time) seem slightly crazier to me but this particular one is nuts. The one at the other Fun Spot is completely average though.

Considering that the normal price of an all-day pass is $41 USD, $25 USD is a heck of a bargain. That's cheaper than three rides on the coasters priced individually.

 

You'll only see that price on Monday though, "cyber monday" is the last day of the US post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend.
