Fun Spot USA in Kissimmee, Florida
Fun Spot USA is an amusement park located in Kissimmee, Florida that offers free admission and free parking to guests. All of the attractions are available on a pay-as-you-go basis, or guests can purchase an armband for unlimited all day riding privileges. In addition, Fun Spot USA offers a number of seasonal specials and promotions, as well as annual passes. The park is open until midnight every day, and opening times vary from 10 AM to 2 PM dependent upon the time of year. It is conveniently situated just two miles from Interstate 4 and a short distance from the Walt Disney World Resort complex.
Fun Spot USA offers a wide variety of rides and attractions for guests of all ages, ranging from kiddie rides to the Rockstar roller coaster. However, the park is particularly well known for having a 300 foot SkyCoaster, the tallest attraction of its type in the world. On the SkyCoaster, groups of up to three guests are hoisted by a cable to the top of the tower before one lucky guest gets to pull the rip cord, sending the group swinging and screaming towards the ground.
The Rockstar wild mouse style coaster features tight bends and unique spinning action that provides a different ride each time, and each car can accommodate four riders per car. Other thrill rides in the park include a traditional Flying Bobs ride that travels forwards and backwards, the Hot Seat pendulum ride, and the Screaming Eagles, where riders control their own with the use of a rudder. For family style rides, guests will enjoy the Tilt-A-Whirl, Paratrooper, Yo-Yo, Surf's Up and Bumper Kars.
Fun Spot USA is also home to some of the area's wildest go-cart tracks, ranging from the Road Course to the Vortex Track. The Road Course and Slick Track are two of Fun Spot USA's fastest tracks, and drivers must navigate multiple twists and turns while racing their friends. The Chaos Track is a multi-leveled track that has double seat go karts, so even younger children can enjoy the action as they ride along with an adult driver. Finally, the Vortex Track provides the ultimate in go kart fun, as this four story track features the world's steepest banking curve that reaches 32 degrees. The Vortex Track also features double go karts so that kids can ride along with adults.
Of course, Fun Spot USA offers plenty of attractions for the younger members of the family too. Children will be delighted to ride the Baron Planes, Convoy, Happy Swing, Kiddie Coaster, Fun Slide, CastleMania, Kiddie Bumper Kars and Carousel. The park also offers a large arcade and classic midway games, as well as several food venues.
