Fun Spot Action Park is undergoing a $40-million expansion to triple its size. Over the next two years they’ll be adding two new roller coasters, a water park, a sky coaster and much more. The first phase will open next spring when the park will be renamed and re-themed Fun Spot America.

The first phase is all set to open in time for their 15th anniversary on June 8, 2013 and will include a brand new 2,000+ ft wooden roller coaster called White Lightning from Great Coasters International which will be the second biggest SkyCoaster in the world (now Orlando's 10th largest structure), a brand new 1,200+ ft steel suspension coaster by Vekoma called Freedom Flyer, a 250-foot SkyCoaster purchased from Las Vegas that resembles the St. Louis arch, an expanded multi-level go-kart track, a double carousel relocated from Cypress Gardens (now open), and new family and thrill rides.

The second phase (open by 2015) will consist of a water park with four slide complexes and a new building housing an expanded arcade, a food court, more birthday rooms and a dinner show.

The water park will have four slide complexes: a SplashRally figure eight racing slide, a Double BowlsEye with two tubes that feed into a single bowl, a 360Rush with vertical drop capsules and a TwistedRacers mat racing slide. A lazy river with a spin-out lagoon, in-water seating areas and racing lanes are planned to surround a water playground.

By the end of the expansion, the park will triple its size going from 5 acres to 15 acres. Now there is even more to see & do when you stay in a vacation rental home in Orlando.
