"We recommend we bring your own"

 

Oh Fun Spot. I hope they corrected that.

 

Nope. Still saying "We recommend we bring your own."

 

Fun Spot. The WalMart of Dollar Trees. And we got the clientele to prove it!

I'm surprised the city of Kissimmee is requiring them to wear masks and the city of Orlando isn't. I thought it would be the other way around.

It's not a city thing, it's a county thing. Osceola County is enforcing required face masks in public for everyone, Orange County is not. It doesn't make it any less peculiar.

I just saw a picture of it. This looks a bit more obvious than the Topper Track RMC uses, but I'm interested to see how it rides!

 

Honestly looks more like their I-box/Iron Horse track to me since the entire beam/rail is made out of steel.

I really look forward to see where this takes GCI, the more competition for RMC the better. Intamin, B&M and Vekoma are already taking design elements from Alan Schilke, curious to see if GCI will follow the lead also.

I always though Alan Schilke stole elements from Intamin lol. They all kinda just steal from each other lol

Alan pretty much 'invented' outwark banked turns on the S&S launch coasters over in China. I suppose, however, that inspiration always has to come from somewhere. Intamin inspired Alan, Alan Inspires Intamin designers. In the end, it benefits the industry as a whole. Especially us enthusiasts; the more, the merrier when it comes to extreme rides.

Acquire. They acquire ideas from each other. Just like how I've acquired various random tools throughout my career.

White Lightning didn't need this, but it is fun to see them experiment. It isn't like it was some amazing credit I don't ever want to see touched. It was a good, but not great ride in my two rides last October. Mine Blower, despite being the better ride with that awesome layout, could use something like this given how rough it has been. But obviously it isn't a GCI, so that is less feasible. Still, if they want to proof of concept the idea for coasters beyond their own woodies, just drive down the road!

Also, I would be doing the world a disservice if I forgot to add how amazing the Go-Karts are at these parks, especially the Kissimmee location. I could have ridden them after dark forever. The racing got intense and my god those stacked tracks are pretty nuts. There was literally light air time on a couple of them. The Orlando tracks were good too and I thought they were great until I got to Kissimmee, so I recommend doing the parks in that order. Mine Blower is the main event for the coasters too. Honestly, we did SeaWorld, BGT, and both Universals along with the two Fun Spots and while those places were great as always, I think the most fun I might have had on the whole trip was on those go karts. Do not just go for the credits and miss them, especially after dark. They are included in the normal ride all day wrist band too.

FYI Fun Spot is having a sale this Saturday for $23 tickets, limit of 10 per person. If anyone has a trip to Orlando scheduled this summer/fall might be worth grabbing a couple passes. I'm not this biggest fan of Fun Spot but for $23 it's worth it's worth it for a few hours of fun.
