While I thought Mine Blower was a little rough and I experienced some shuffling, I thought the strong airtime made up for it. But I am curious as to how the ride will age and how well the park takes care of it.

Stopping through Orlando in a few weeks. Will have a chance to get 1 ride on each Fun Spot coaster. Any input on where to sit for each coaster? Front? Middle? Back?

Funny story, I prefer back seat on White Lightning but front seat on Mine Blower. But honestly, the queues are often so short that you can get multiple rides in minutes.

Has anyone done the skysled yet? How is it?

 

Thinking of hitting both fun spots next month (not on the same day)... I've already done the Orlando park / White Lightning but haven't done Mine Blower yet. The Orlando park will be too close to my hotel to not marathon WL one evening.

 

With so many mixed reviews of mine blower I'm debating to get a wristband or just go to that fun spot in Kissimmee to ride MB once or twice (once in front, once in back? = $20?) and then enjoy the wrist band at the Orlando location. Is SkySled at the Orlando location too? It's not listed on the site.

 

Is there enough difference between the two parks to warrant a wristband at both? I know they do the $99 season pass but I have no reason to go to either again this year.

In case anyone was wondering, here are some other ticket options offered at the park (no mention of them online on the website), from the live online chat i had with them:

 

1) is it true you can visit both parks the same day by upgrading your wristband for $10 so you can get both parks?

-- Yes, that is correct. $10 upgrade per armband to go to the second park.

 

2) If I want to visit two separate days, (one day at each park) do you offer a 2 park ticket?

-- We do not offer a 2-park ticket.

 

3) Do you offer an evening only ticket?

-- Yes, we have an evening special after 9PM. Passes go down to $30. These can only be purchased in-park.

I can get a $53 wristband for Kissimmee which includes 1 skycoaster ride, and then +$10 for Orlando in the same day so $63 definitely beats out a season pass i'm not going to use

If I still lived in Orlando that would be another thing.

I'm buying season passes for my daughter and I. We will be visiting all three locations next month. I'm hoping those cool go-kart tracks will rekindle my love of go-karts the way Kings Dominion did for roller coasters in 2017.

 

I figure with them being open until midnight and the fact that we will be in the Tampa/Orlando area for 3-4 days, we will get our money's worth.

I live over 1000 miles away and I feel I got my money's worth last year. With the difference between a day pass and a season pass being minimal, it made a ton of sense. It was the perfect way to end the day when SeaWorld closed early.

Made my first visit today since Mine Blower was installed. My opinions on the ride are favorable but at the same time a bit mixed. I have to start by saying that this is a legit coaster. If you want to visit all the real coasters in Central Florida, you're going to have to visit both Fun Spots. This this is a real coaster, but it is an intense beast! From the moment it absolutely whips you over that first drop it is a relentless assault. It's a little bit too much of an assault for it to land among my favorites like white Lightning did. This is my first "next-generation" style woodie and I'm a bit more of a traditionalist. The super overbanked turns weren't really my cup of tea. The ride also tracked surprisingly poorly for a relatively new wooden coaster. But on the plus side, this one was filled with little blips of ejector air, and it's quite a marvel that they were able to fit such a beautifully intense and complete-feeling ride in a footprint that seems scarcely bigger than a wild mouse. Truly a marvel in that regard.

No worries. Listen, I respond to something, and then I usually find out that I already responded,

several pages back in the thread. My memory is getting more stupid, every year. Old age. Go figure.

EDIT: By the way, the new little coaster looks great, I'm sure the klids will enjoy it. As for that mini-golf course,

Geez I wish we had something like that at Playland, instead of the bland-blah-bleah course they have, now.

the Mini Golf at Fun Spot Atlanta looks amazing.

 

We didn't have enough time when there last year to play, but I did get a pic of of from the Ferris Wheel

 

(I'm back in ATL over Labor Day weekend, for Dragon*con, and we're already planning to spend that Monday at SFOG with a stop at Fun Spot to play mini golf)

Just a quick reminder. If you are planning on going to any of the FunSpot Parks in Florida this year or until June of 2020, this is the weekend to buy your passes. This weekend only, on their anniversary weekend, you can buy a day pass for only 25 bucks ! ( and no hidden fees on the web site to buy) Just bought a bunch of passes for us. Good Deal.

I noticed that RCDB now lists the old Viking Voyage coaster from Wild Adventures as being "In Storage" at Fun Spot Atlanta. Did I miss an announcement about this coaster or could it possibly just be a parts donor for their current Miler?

Screamin Eagle is going to Fun Spot America in Kissimmee, also according to rcdb.

Thanks! Screamin' Eagle has some intense moments and I do like the coaster, so it'll be nice to have it at the Kissimmee location I go to more often.

 

Where is it going? Hopefully they are not replacing rockstar

Personally I thought Screamin' Eagle was a pile of hot garbage but I guess if they throw it in that back section of Old Town it's a (slight) improvement over nothing.
