Are you going at all?
No... We never really have covered Fun Spot.
I was just curious. I think you and Andy made a video about the Orlando Eye a long time ago and was thinking that you might visit some of the smaller areas outside of the parks but it's no big deal.
Yeah pal, you're gonna have to go Inside Fun Spot dot com for the juicy lowdown
Is that forum that just joined with Kissimmee United?
Yeah, they are way better than FSMAGIC.COM. All they talk about over there is what's the best snack treat at Fun Spot.
Which, by the way, Fun Spot America has a great chocolate shop that has better apples than Disney.
They are going to be real busy testing. I don't think they've finished the track yet. Seems rushed, but if they can do it great. I was thinking the opening would have been a week later.
First test run!
That is BEAUTIFUL
I was at the park yesterday to hopefully see it testing before heading over to SeaWorld. Unfortunately they were doing some tweaking to the track & structure so I was only able to get some pictures of the ride and the park in general. It was the first time I had been here and will be back sometime later this summer to actually ride the rides. I already have my all day pass purchased when they did the $19 birthday deal earlier this month. I can't wait!
Here are some pics of Mine Blower I took. The trains weren't very visible from where I could view.
On a side note, I can't wait to come back and ride Head Rush 360 as well. I love Frisbee rides and have never been on one that went upside down.
How does this thing do an inversion without a third wheel set? Is it only held in place by centrifugal force? On another note, watch the wheels float in this video:
I am going to assume the third set is not visible. in this picture you can see the larger wheel on top and appears to be a smaller underneath that is not the side wheel.
I cant imagine anyone building a coaster without "up" wheels
I had a "blast" at the grand opening on Friday. They gave everyone a box of socks that said it'll blow your socks off. Very cute.
The ride is great. After that first drop it never really lets up, packing a lot of punch into a small footprint. Really like the completely sideways banked curve near the end, even more than the barrel roll.
Here's my video from the grand opening with some footage of the coaster I got mixed in:
The third set is under the wooden track.
If it is anything like Switchback at ZDT''s, it's huge fun in a small package. I rode some very ho hum GCI's over the past couple of weeks.
