When I first moved to Orlando, like many others, I only knew about the large amusement parks. I mean, who hasn’t heard about Disney World or Universal Studios. They are all over the TV and people frequently travel from all over the world to visit them. I love visiting both of these parks just as much as the next person, but they come with really high prices and a lot of the time with really big crowds.
However, these larger amusement parks are not your only option if you want to have some fun and go on some rides in Orlando. There are smaller amusement parks that you can check out. One of those parks is Fun Spot.
My kids and I visited Fun Spot Kissimmee last week and had a blast!

What there is to do at Fun Spot Kissimmee
Fun Spot has a variety of rides for kids and adults of all ages. There was a whole section of kiddie rides that my 6-year-old could go on. He went on the bumper cars (he was big enough for the bigger kid section, but they do have a separate section for smaller kids), he went on the dragon roller coaster and the kiddie airplanes. They also had a mini drop ride for the youngers and a flying eagle ride that he would have been able to go on with an adult.
My 11-year-old had a grand time as she is old enough, and tall enough now, to go on everything by herself. She went on the swings, the flying eagle and then for the first time ever drove a go-kart by herself.
I did the go-karts as well and I have to say while fun, they are definitely not for the faint of heart. Unlike other go-kart tracks that go round and round on a flat surface, this go-kart track climbs. But what goes up must come down. When you get to the top of the go-kart track it feels like pulling up to the drop on a roller coaster; it’s pretty steep! There are two drops to get to the bottom and then you do it all over again. It was pretty fun once I got over my fear of going down too fast. My daughter had no fear at all; neither did any of the other kids that were driving.

We ended our night riding the Galaxy Coaster which is a combination of a traditional roller coaster and the spinning tea cups.
We were at the park for about 3 hours and we definitely could have spent more time at the park. There are a lot of other Fun Spot rides that we didn’t go on. There is a ferris wheel, the flying bobs, a wooden roller coaster, that I couldn’t convince my daughter to go on, as well as a few other thrill rides.
One of the rides that we didn’t go on, and to be honest probably wouldn’t have even if we had time, was the Skycoaster. This is definitely a ride for those of you who are daredevils or are raising daredevils. Going on the Skycoaster is like jumping out of a plane 250 feet up in the air. You are in a swing harness and are raised up to the top of the tower and then dropped. After the initial drop, you then fly back and forth over Fun Spot. We saw many groups (up to 3 can go at a time) enjoying the Skycoaster while we were at the park.

Fun Spot Pricing
There are two options for paying at Fun Spot. You can buy a ride pass or get a pay as you go Fun E-Card.
There are two packages that Fun Spot offers, the Fun Pass and the Mega Fun Pass. Both passes give you all day access to all of Fun Spot’s rides. The main difference is the Mega Fun Pass includes the SkyCoaster. If you know you want to ride the SkyCoaster, I would definitely go with the Mega Fun Pass.
A great thing that also comes with the passes, that I haven’t seen anywhere else, is a Chauffeur Pass. This allows parents to go on rides with their younger kids without paying extra, so you don’t need to buy a separate pass for yourself. If you want to go on rides on your own, then you will need your own ticket.
The cost of the Fun Pass is $48.99 and Mega Fun Pass is $48.95.
Fun Spot also offers an annual pass that is $99.95 per person.
Fun E-Card (only available in the park)
If you only want to go on a couple of rides, you can purchase a Fun E-Card. It can be used to pay for rides ($5 or $10 per ride), arcade games, food and merchandise. It basically pays for anything in the park. You just put the amount of money you want to spend on the card.
If you are not planning to go on any rides, there is no cost to enter the park.
Where to buy Fun Spot Tickets
I would recommend buying tickets for Fun Spot online as that is how you will get the discounted pricing above.
I got my tickets for Fun Spot on the Tiqets website. On Tiqets, you can buy tickets to attractions here in Orlando, all over the US and internationally as well. You will definitely want to check them first before buying tickets directly at the attraction as they sometimes offer discount pricing on attractions and attraction bundles, like this one to Fun Spot and Island H20 that can help lower your price.
Fun Spot Hours
Fun Spot is open from 10am to 12am every day.
