Fun Spot America Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Every transition is stupid but not rough and if you're a fan of the jankiness of Fun Spot this will fit right in. In a way I kind of like it BECAUSE of what a piece of sh*t it is. Don't go out of your way but if you're in the area go and ride it once. You'll have a good time.

I can second this, since it used to be in my area and I rode it once. Celebration City was always proud of it too, and I get why. For a cheap ride, it isn't completely awful.

I hadn't ridden it since it opened at FS, but loved it at Wild Adventures. It's a fun re-rideable ride, to me. No, it's not the biggest or best ride out there, but I love that it was put somewhere I can go ride it when I'm in the area to go to SeaWorld.

Hey so update...

 

We were in Orlando last week and stopped by this place after a day at Disney. We honestly weren't really in the mood to ride it after spending 4 days walking around parks and Disney World seemed like a tough act to follow but we were looking for some fast food since it was late, literally passed it anyway and decided to bite the bullet and ride it since we were right there. We parked in the back and were in and out in 10 minutes. The coaster wasn't running (or even turned on) and had no ride op but someone walked over and turned it on for us.

 

Anyway, I actually liked it a lot better than the similar-looking ride in Atlanta. Every transition is stupid but not rough and if you're a fan of the jankiness of Fun Spot this will fit right in. In a way I kind of like it BECAUSE of what a piece of sh*t it is. Don't go out of your way but if you're in the area go and ride it once. You'll have a good time. The ride ops are also over-the-top proud of the thing, telling us how it just opened and enthusiastically asking us what we thought when er got back to the station. We told them it was amazing.

 

Old Town is so f*cking weird.

 

I agree the jankiness of it helped the ride, except for the second turn. That second turn was brutal!

 

But the rest of the ride had some good airtime and laterals on the turns that were way too tight.

 

Also in my 2017 and 2018 visits, I didn't find Mine Blower rough. It shuffled, but I found it plenty reridable. On my visit a few weeks ago, I thought it was running considerably rougher. Has anyone else noticed that?

 

I know people have called the ride rough from day 1, but I would defend it until my most recent rides. I still love the coaster's aggressive layout, but I did get a headache after a few rides. Meanwhile I could and did marathon Hurricane.

Agreed, rode Mineblower last August, had a great time, but it was rather rough. The airtime, laterals, and overall intensity were still there, and I have no regrets, but it was running rougher than I excepted.

I'm one of those day one people, I think Mine Blower is a hot mess and I ride it on average once every few months, and only once. The layout is masterful but they really need to do something about those valleys.

On weekends, yes, though I've never gone on a weekday. You'll never wait more than a cycle for a ride, but everything is always running.

Hmm...NO temp checks, no required masks for guests? Does the park assume ZERO liability??

How long til someone gets sick and they are shut down?

Very short sighted of this park. Disappointed in them.

 

I mean... they are recommending masks and are doing NINE (yes, 3 more than recommended by the CDC) feet apart in the queue lines. People don’t exactly live under a rock. I also don’t see a lot of 65+ people visiting fun spot, hitting the go cart tracks and downing a couple beers. Also Island H2O live waterpark in Orlando opens today. as well.

I also know the clientele that Fun Spot usually attracts (I Drive tourists, locals) and I highly doubt any of them will wear masks or stay 6 or even 9 feet apart. And I have been to this park dozens of times, so I speak from a voice of experience. I wish them the best, but I know how stupid people are.
