^ Agreed... I seem to remember the guys from GCI saying in one of the IAAPA videos (don't remember if it was the TPR one) that once it goes vertical it would take only a few weeks to have the structural fully up since it is steel.

When I read that the Wheelie was headed to Fun Spot Action Park, all I could say was:

WAH-HOO!!!

This ride that once ran in Six Flags Over Georgia looked to good to be scrapped when I was at the park last year, and now it will thrill a new set of riders at its brand new home. When they get all their rides up and running, I'm sure the park will get to see a lot of these coming towards them:

$ $ $ $ $

"I'm not perfect; I just love to ride!!!" :airtime: :airtimer:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

"White Lightning" still sounds like the nickname you'd give the only fast white kid on the high school track team.

Fun Spot announced today that they are expanding (on top of their current expansion!). They bought another 10-acres of land - no plans yet for its use.

Here is the Facebook post:
Drum role please for the big announcement!!

It is always difficult keeping a HUGE secret and we have been holding this one in for over a month now!!

At our Employee Christmas party last December John Jr. announced to the staff that Fun Spot America may purchase even more land in the future.

Well that future was not too far off as Fun Spot America is the proud new owners on another additional 10-Acres!!! This will bring Fun Spot America up to a grand total of a 25-Acre park once completed!!!

Absolutely no plans have been made for this additional property yet, but when opportunity falls in your lap you must take it!!

Thats great! I wonder where the plot is. I was thinking on the far side of the road at the top?

^When we met with them I think they actually mentioned a plot where a failing strip mall was, but that empty plot would seem to make more sense.

Oh, the strip mall? Well isn't the mall right next to them no the right? Though, that seems bigger then 10 acres.

I assume their current expansion will probably result in more parking spaces? As of now they appear to have quite a tiny lot!

With the expansion they are working on, a new parking lot was included on the other side of the property.
