    Not quite the Orlando Thrill Park but should be a fun diversion nonetheless.

    A GCI Woodie would put Fun Spot on the local attraction map. My question now is what kind of steel coaster they are getting. I hope it's a Gerstlauer Euro-fighter.

    I have heard this expansion is in the ballpark of $80-100 million.

    On a side note, Old Town is also in the midst of a big bucks expansion.

    It needs an expansion the park has lost a lot of shops and Businesses. Now they need to put 75.000 to 100,000 in to Grimm Haunted House.

    Apparently, GCI's new "Big Fun" creation is possibly coming to Fun Spot as the wooden coaster (from robbalvey at ThemeParkReview):

    Here is a video of Big Fun (made by GCI):

    Wow, this expansion looks interesting. Of the hundreds of times I've been to Orlando, I've been to either Fun Spot location. That may change now.
