The $20 million investment is focused on the Fun Spot Action Park location on International Drive. The expansion will increase the Orlando park’s size from 5 acres to 15 acres, and will happen in three stages.
|Fun Spot Action Park
A Screamin’ Swing thrill ride, wooden roller coaster and double-decker carousel will be added in the first stage, set to open February 2013. The second stage will add a SkyCoaster thrill ride and a waterpark with four slides by May 2013. Once the third stage is complete, in May 2014, visitors will see the addition of a suspended steel roller coaster and a Windseeker swing tower.
The wooden roller coaster is being designed by Great Coasters International and is expected to be 65-feet tall. It will feature and out-and-back design, and will actually be a wooden-steel hybrid coaster. The Screamin’ Swing will rocket riders 50 feet into the air at a 100-degree angle and the SkyCoaster will be designed to resemble the St. Louis Arch. Further, the waterpark will be home to a SplashRally figure eight racing slide, a Double BowlsEye with two tubes feeding into a single bowl, a 360Rush with vertical drop capsules and a Twisted Racers mat racing slide. A lazy river, water playground and in-water seating areas are also planned.
All of this sounds like great fun! Stay tuned to find out more details as they are released.
