In the early days of parachuting, skydivers were encouraged to build themselves a chute after jumping from the plane using randomly chosen items like cloud and living bird. Enjoy the evolution of safer sky-based sports with today’s Groupon to the SkyCoaster at Fun Spot USA in Kissimmee. Fun Spot’s SkyCoaster allows grounded citizens the chance to temporarily trump the tyrannical rule of gravity, which has been holding down humans ever since Isaac Newton invented it using an apple. At 300 feet, the SkyCoaster is one of the tallest attractions of its kind in the world, so once you’re released from your momentary sky-high zenith, you’ll feel the doubly powerful thrill skydiving and hang gliding during your gracefully controlled plunge.
Though reviews are sparse, SkyCoaster at Fun Spot USA was featured in Examiner:
- Rip through the Earth's atmosphere as you fall downward, into a gradual and smooth swing, until you [sic] movement slowly stops. The fall, itself, provides a brief moment of peace, as you become one with the Earth's gravitational force. While the swinging offers an entirely separate peace; allowing you to glide above the surface of the Earth, completely defying the gravity that you had just bonded with. – Brian Stout, Examiner
Fun Spot America
Fun Spot America's family-friendly amusement park has the charm of a small-town carnival, but the colorful adventure never packs up and leaves. Although there are activities for kids, such as miniature tea cups, a fun slide, and an arcade, where Fun Spot really makes its name is with its thrilling ride for adults. White Lightning, Orlando's only wooden roller coaster, offers 10 moments of air time over it's 2,000-foot track, sending riders down 75-foot drops, around a track filled with twists and turns, and around 90-degree banking turn before pulling back into the loading station.
Speedsters can also head over to a series of Go-Kart tracks that keep riders pushing pedals through banked bowls and hairpin curves on a multilevel track. The park rounds out its attractions list with bumper cars, Enterprise, a Tilt-a-Whirl, and Rip Curl.
