Race The Go Carts At Fun Spot Action Park In Orlando

Mar 12, 2008
If your kids, or you for that matter, love go-cart racing then the Fun Spot Action Park in Orlando is the place to go. In addition to the racing tracks the park also has rides for pre-schoolers, an amusement arcade, and other rides. Here is a brief guide to what you can do at the Fun Spot Action park.

Go Cart racing is the main attraction at this park, and there are four main tracks. The Quad Helix track takes you over 1600 ft on four corkscrews, multiple levels of overpasses and underpasses, and has a 25 degree banked descending curve that provides thrills and challenges even for the most experienced drivers.

The Conquest Track is over 1000 ft long and has a triple level corkscrew that elevates you to over 30 feet into the Orlando skyline and then finishes with the "Florida Ski Jump" descent hill.

The Thrasher Road course track is 800 ft and is considered to be the most challenging ride in the whole park with active acceleration and braking needed to master the demanding layout.

Finally there is the Commander Track which is an 800 ft multi level track featuring a double dip-laminated bridge.

In addition to the go cart tracks the park also has six thrill rides which include: A 100 foot high Revolver Ferris Wheel, Bumper Kars, Bumper Boats, the Paratrooper, a jaw-dropping Scrambler Ride, and the Cadet Track.

There are also kiddie rides including a carousel, swings, Panda Bears, spinning tea cups, a train and a frog hopper.

Rounding out the activities is a 10, 000 square foot arcade area (spread out over two floors) with over 120 arcade games.

The park also helps you to organize birthday parties providing either an outside table or a special party room. You can make it a bring-your-own party or take advantage of the park's catering. Check this option on the park's website www.fun-spot.com .

Another activity which seems a bit unusual for a place like this is a corporate team building program. You can bring your company team there and enjoy four programs. Here is how the park describes it: "We at Fun Spot Action Park have developed four programs to help companies have fun, build team skills and learn important concepts. We use a Scavenger Hunt model to have teams work through the park gaining clues to solve an educational puzzle." For more details visit their website.

Like the other parks in Orlando, Fun Spot is not cheap, but if you plan carefully you can get good value for your money. If you have a group of 10 or more there are group rates. For $34.95 you can get an armband that entitles you (for those who are 10 or older) unlimited rides on the go cart tracks and the park rides. There are lower priced armbands for children and the single price ride tickets for the go cart tracks are $6.00, and $3.00 for other rides.

Fun Spot Action Park is located off Interstate 4 at exit 75 A, between Prime Outlet Mall and Wet 'N Wild just off International Drive and Kirkman Road at the base of the Gigantic Ferris Wheel. The park opens at 10.00 AM and closes at midnight.

So, if you have go cart racing fans in your family, then plan on spending a day Fun Spot when you make your next trip to Orlando.
