The third article in a series looking at some alternative attractions in Central Florida, in the Kissimmee area.
There are two Fun Spot USA amusement parks in the Central Florida area, one close to Orlando and the other in Kissimmee. Fun Spot USA is a family focused amusement park boasting all the usual attractions ranging from some for the thrill seeker to some which are more targeted at the younger members of the family.
A must for any adrenaline junkie is the 300 foot tall SkyCoaster (the tallest in the world) which merges the dual thrills of Sky diving and hang gliding to produce an experience guaranteed to get your pulse racing.
A few more rides for the dedicated thrill seeker include Screaming Eagles and the Power Trip Coaster both of which put control into your hands so that you decide the speed and the height, depending on how brave you are feeling!
If being in control is your thing then go-karting is for you. There are four specialized go-kart circuits at Fun Spot USA the most extreme of which is the Vortex which reaches a towering 4 stories high in places and also boasts a steeper banking track than Daytona.
All of the above are not for the faint-hearted and height restrictions and age limits will rule out most of these for younger children. Fortunately Fun Spot USA has its own child friendly entertainment zone, Kid Spot. This area is aimed at the 2-6 age group and features a series of much gentler rides. There is also an indoor arcade stocked with a large number of games that all age groups can enjoy.
Unlike the major theme parks in the area, entrance and parking are free, with the option of paying per ride or getting an all-day ticket.
