Fun Land of Fredericksburg
There are many painful credit stops out there. Some are in the middle of nowhere. Some empty your wallet. Some are embarrassing. And some are outright painful.
Fun Land of Fredericksburg is none of those things. It's minutes off I-95 and offers pay-per-ride options. And the credit is semi-respectable. Where there was once a powered kiddie coaster now stands one of those SBF spinners.
I believe Twist-n-Shout cost $6 and I boarded immediately. At this point, we've all been on at least one of these SBF spinners. As of 2019, they're the cool kids on the block when it comes to kids coasters. But this one is definitely one of the better ones for two reasons.
1) Location- The indoor setting makes the ride way more disorienting. You spin very close to walls and the flashing lights of the arcade is sensory overload.
2) Cycle- I'm pretty sure I got 7 or 8 laps. For my spinning adverse credit whores, that's probably your worst nightmare.
While I'll never go out of my way for one of these SBF spinners, I do enjoy them (to an extent) and have no shame riding them. 3 out of 10
Fun Land is split into an indoor and an outdoor section. The indoor section has a few other FEC staples like bumper cars, laser tag, rock walls, random kiddie rides, and arcade games.
The outdoor section has mini golf plus several attractions for the older crowd. The crown jewel is a multi-story go kart track that would make Fun Spot proud. Beyond that you have mini golf, a smaller go kart track, and a few classic flats like the Scrambler, Tilt-a-Whirl, and Round-Up.
My time at Fun Land was brief, but it seemed like a very well run FEC. Everything in the indoor section seemed brand new and it was quite busy for a Tuesday. The outdoor area wasn't too busy, but I attribute that to the 100 degree heat since that go kart track did look quite good.
I don't know if I'll be back to Fun Land anytime soon, but if you're into crazy go karts or credit whoring, it's well worth a stop if you're traveling between Kings Dominion and Washington DC.
