As far as everyone else, how do you survive on the internet if you're that easily creeped out?


As it turns out, they have always been extremely lax on that. Previous Megaplex's we've done the Slingshot and Skycoaster. Granted, this is the first time we were allowed on the coasters. As it turns out, they were able to skycoaster this time around too. I would attach the photos, but it's just going to add to the clutter, so I'm deciding against it.
Baby, I'm howlin' for you.

Well, it's the first time they've -had- coasters. Still, my opinion of the place is just going up more and more. Maybe I'll make it to Megaplex one of these years soon.

Ugh, can we go back to talking about more pleasant topics like bowling pins riding coasters.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Okay, let's change the subject and talk about the possible future for Fun Spot Action Park. Now after that the park is starting to generate more $$$, now the next question should be - what will they do for an encore?

My vote would be for a dark ride, regardless if it's a walkthrough or a ride. =)

Speaking about Future, any one have any information based on their waterpark phase? Is that still a go? or no? I personally would prefer them to develop more of the FEC side with other rides and attractions. I feel what is definitely missing is a log flume for certain, and if I could truly have it my way a shuttle loop :lmao: but highly impossible.

I've gone pantless!

I was about to ask the same thing. The dueling bowl slides and SplashRally looked pretty cool.

I've never been (might go if people think it's any good? How expensive would it be to pay per ride?) But based on there current line up I defiantly think that a water ride, preferably a log flume, would be the way to go. It would complete the line up and it's so warm in Florida it would be a great way to cool off.
