Last year was a HUGE year for Fun Spot Attractions as it was our busiest year on record. We used to use a slogan that said “More Tracks, More Rides, More FUN!” For 2011 we would need to add “More People!” So what is ahead for 2012? Well it won’t be the end of the world (though it may feel like it when you soar from our 300 foot SkyCoaster ride). For us it will be a year we build our new expanded Orlando park adding roller coaster, water rides, thrill rides, a restaurant and more. During the busy Christmas Season we tried a new ride at our Kissimmee park called AREA 51. You, our guests, didn’t care for it, so its history. We believe the customer is right and if a ride is boring and we can replace it with something better, we will. All this to say that our other new ride, GYRO LOOP at the Orlando Park is still under consideration. We will need to decide by February 1st, if we keep it or look for a replacement. So come try it out and let us know via our Facebook page what you thought of it. Is it a keeper? Read more about it below on a previous blog.
On a side note, Fun Spot Attractions was recently honored by having our Marketing Director; Mark Brisson asked to join the Governmental Affairs Advisory Board of IAAPA – The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. Mark presently represents us with two trips a year to Tallahassee. He will now have two trips for IAAPA including an April trip to Washington DC. This Advisory Board of 15 members includes major parks like Disney, Universal, Sea World, Six Flags, Herschends, Morey’s Pier, and other famous parks worldwide. Now Fun Spot has been invited to the table. Not bad for a local, family-owned and family-operated park. A little guy invited to the big table, that’s HUGE!
