    Wow, this expansion looks interesting. Of the hundreds of times I've been to Orlando, I've been to either Fun Spot location. That may change now.

    If anyone here is not from central Florida please know that Fun Spot has the WORST, the GOOFIEST, the most low budget commercials in the area. Don't get me started with the choreography. The auto dealers have more compelling and well produced commercials.

    Reminds me of a lot of updated Starliner. Classic John Miller style

    A couple of changes to the original design. Gonna have 90 degree banking on the turn around and a height of 75 feet. Top speed will be just under 50MPH with a length of 2000 ft of track. Projected opening Spring 2013!

    Oh man, that big hump before the turn around has a double dip drop similar to the Jack Rabbit at Kennywood. Get ready for some extreme airtime. It will be short, but will feel like you are being thrown out of the car.

    I LOVE the Jack Rabbit. Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood did something similar with two of their drops. It seems like this one has the double dip going both ways, meaning an INSANE amount of airtime, not even taking into account the multiple airtime hills elsewhere on the coaster.
