Living in Florida, we try to stay away from the activities that are clearly "tourist traps". We had been to Fun Spot a few years ago, and found it overpriced and frankly, a little seedy. I never really had the intention of returning.
This year, however, we saw the news of the renovation, and with my 5 year old son in tow, I decided to give the park another try. Are we glad that we did! First of all, the expansion doubled the size of the park. Although there are still plenty of go carts, there are now ride options for those who aren't fans. The two family coasters are just thrilling enough, without being terrifying! The whole expansion reminds me of my summers at the boardwalk on the east coast.
The best part of our day, however, was the stellar young staff. Although it was terribly hot, the staff was friendly and energetic, making conversation with my young son at each ride. At one attraction, my son's burlap sack got caught at the top of the slide- before I even realized there was a problem, the attendant raced up to the top of the slide, freed my son, and calmed his nerves before sending him down. Outstanding guest service in every area.
We have have since been to two of the bigger parks, and have compared them negatively to the experience we had at Fun Spot America. We recommend this park without any hesitation at all!

From a go-kart funpark with a Giant Ferris Wheel, to a thrilling full amusement park, Fun Spot America has come along way, with two major roller coasters now: one suspended and one wood twister that really packs a punch, and not too mention a nice assortment of kiddie and major rides. Immaculately clean and all well maintained.

Compliment! We travel to orlando 2-3 times per year and Funspot is our favorite attraction and always the hilight of our trip (and has been for years). There is someting for all ages, your staff is TOP NOTCH!! I cannot express how much we love this amusement park. Today was the first time since the expansion.. we were there all day and did not want to leave. All the way from the new rides to the go carts, every member has their favorites and we talk about it for months.. until the next time we can attend. Please keep up the good work and give EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE KUDOS from a family of 4. Also, the prices are kept to a minimal, with the $5. refillable drinks to keep us hydrated, to the minimal admition, and to the delicious burgers in the cafe.This generation is a difficult time to rasie a family and making an amusement park that is so family affordable and fun is a huge contribution. THANK YOU FROM OUR ENTIRE FAMILY. Once again,we will treasure this until our next Orlando adventure!

We went here specifically for the Go-karts. We have 3 boys aged 12, 16 and 18 who love Go-karting. We paid for them to have a go on the green track (which was recommended by the lady on the till as the fastest track). Well I must say what a disappointment. The boys set off in line and that is exactly how they stayed! There was hardly any power in the karts and no chance of taking over as the acceleration is very limited. All 3 boys said that they didn't have to break once! That tells you a lot about the speed of the karts. Don't waste your money, that is my tip.

Funspot was just as it is named a fun spot. My children loved this park. We especially enjoyed the go karts tracks. There are two Funspot parks in Orlando. We went to both and had just as much fun at both parks.
