Fun Spot America Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Name doesn't matter - I'm positive this will be a fun little coaster!

 

This... and I'm sure the name will grow on everyone eventually. I mean, "Mystic Timbers" is an unbelievably dumb name and we're already used to it. Amazingly, I think of the 3 wood coasters coming to America next year, this one has the best name almost by default.

They're not required, there's no real front gate entry process and you can walk to your car in like 2 minutes from anywhere in the park. I'm not sure if they have lockers or not, but why use them?

 

As for mini golf... I love Congo River. I haven't played them all but I'm sure there are plenty of good ones. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PAY ACTUAL MONEY TO PLAY GATOR GOLF.

So I visited both Fun Spots on Wednesday and thought I'd do a quick photo trip report.

 

Kissimmee: A fun little park that will benefit greatly from the addition of Mine Blower.

Scorecard:

Chaos Track x2

Vortex Track x2

Skycoaster x1 HOLY SH!T that was awesome.

Surf's Up x1--Fun stand-up take on the Disk'o idea that works better than stand up coasters.

Rockstar Energy Coaster x2 It's a spinning mouse, nothing I haven't done before, but credit #96

Paratrooper x1

Kiddie Coaster x1 (5 laps) Credit #97

Headrush 360 x2 Best flat ride at either park.

Tilt-a-whirl x1

Crazy Couch x1 I was surprised at the short cycle this thing had--especially in comparison to all other attractions

The Flyers were down, but they were Larson, so no big loss unless they were snappable.

 

Orlando: A solid 1-2 punch with the coasters paired with a couple good flats and go-karts

Scorecard:

Freedom Flyer Regular x2 Credit #98

Freedom Flyer VR x1 Better without VR, but still a fun experience

Space Invader x1 Love S&S Swings

Rip Curl x1

Paratrooper x1 Miles better than the Kissimmee version, wasn't expecting the backwards section

Enterprise x1 My first Schwartzkopf Enterprise was a fun experience until the Ride Op unloaded the car in front of mine, and rotated to another attraction, leaving me and my traveling companion stuck in our cars on the backside of the attraction for 10 minutes, trying to signal for help.

Sea Serpent x1 (4 laps) Credit whoring leads to credit #99

Gator Spot x1

The 4 go-kart tracks x1 each

Ferris Wheel x1 got some good pictures on it

White Lightning x8-10 Deceptive in appearance, but a balls to the wall experience from lift to brakes. Also, CREDIT #100

 

It's upsetting that more people don't know about these parks. They're awesome and have some great growth potential. But I'm thankful that everything was either a walk-on or a single-cycle wait. I'm upset that neither location had a designated gift shop, so I couldn't acquire my fun spot hat

Overall Rating: 7/10

And a sunset shot from the Coke store at Disney Springs to close out the trip. P.S. I hate Beverly.

If you dont mind me asking how much was it to do both parks? I do not really see a two park ticket price so i didnt know how this all works.

 

It's right here. It's $55.95 and includes everything but the Sky Coasters (yes, including Go Karts). I highly recommend it but I also sip the Fun Spot Kool Aid.

 

While the Kool-Aid is damn good and about to be better when Mine Blower opens, the ticket Bill's looking at is the "either park + meal/souvenir drink cup" combo. The park-hopper is closer to $60 and is NOT available online. The park hopper + Skycoaster ticket I purchased was about $87.
