Guess who is coming to a movie theater near you?

That’s right! He’s back! This cut-out of our TV Spokesperson John Jr will be in 3 local theaters this June and July. He will be filled with brochures that have discount coupons in them. Which 3 theaters will he be at? Well all three are in Central Florida and serve both locals and tourists just like our parks do. Try to figure it out and we will tell you in a future blog. So the next time you go to the theater and see cut-outs of Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and others, look for John Jr. as well. This is your “Coming Attraction”.

What do you want?

Fun Spot has 10 acres to fill at their location in Orlando and we want to know...What do you want? Our owner, John Arie and his son John Arie Jr. are traveling the country with several of our maintenance crew and managers to scout out new attractions for the 10 acres. Below are several rides that they have looked at. What do you think? Would one of these make a great addition to our park?

Please excuse our mess!

Please excuse our mess as we make way for our new coaster. Demolition of the former North Ticket booth (Original SkyCoaster building) has begun. Once the building is demolished and the area is cleaned we can prep for the install of our new coaster! Fun Spot's goal is to have the coaster open at our HUGE birthday celebration June 11th. Of course this is weather permitting and no delays! Stay tuned for information on our HUGE 13th Birthday Bash!

Cinco de Mayo FUN

John Jr.

John Jr celebrated the holiday by participating in a hospitality golf tournament at Falcon’s Fire Course in Kissimmee. The W.H.O. Tournament was held on May 4th, and Junior took time to have fun with the Boggy Creek Airboat team, wearing sombreros, holding gators and shooting above par. But even if Junior is on an airboat on a golf course, people still want him to do the “It’s HUGE!” wave. If you see Junior, at a Magic game, at the mall, in our parks, in a store, ask him to do the “It’s HUGE! wave for you. (But don’t ask when he is with his family in church, okay).

A Celebration with Salt

In April Fun Spot had a booth at the annual Bacchus Bash, held at Premium Outlet Malls on I-Drive. It was the most successful Bacchus Bash ever with over $122,000 raised for scholarships and over 25,000 people in attendance. Fun Spot tried to put a unique spin on the food and beverage street party by offering our popcorn seasoned with either Black Truffle Salt or Chardonnay Salt. For this annual party of hotels and their fine restaurants, Fun Spot was able to bring our fun popcorn and make it just a little “Fancy-Schmancy” for the event.

Boy Scouts are the Best

During the last month, Fun Spot had the good fortune to be part of the Golden Eagle dinners in both Orange and Osceola counties. Rubbing elbows with Mayors and Sheriffs and many of the top business people in Central Florida, we all joined together to celebrate the virtues of Boy Scouting.
