Fun Spot America adds Sky Hawk
Fun Spot America Theme Park, Orlando, Florida, is adding another new ride, Sky Hawk. Sky Hawk is a 90-foot family swing ride manufactured by A.R.M (USA) Inc. and will provide guests a bird’s eye view of the park. The 24-passenger swing features both traditional side-by-side two passenger ride seating as well as side-by-side two passenger horizontal (prone) seating.
Guests will be elevated to new heights while spinning at a quick 10 revolutions per minute. The tower will feature vivid colors such as purple, magenta, yellow, and orange and is located on the north side of the park between two of the park’s roller coasters, White Lightning and Freedom Flyer. At night guests can also expect to see a beautiful programable LED package on the tower illuminating the Fun Spot Orlando skyline.
“We’re excited to offer our guests this thrilling new ride,” said John Arie Jr., CEO of Fun Spot America Theme Parks. “The addition will make a visit to our park even more memorable for families!” The addition of Sky Hawk brings the park’s total rides and attractions count to 31. The ride is expected to debut in May 2021.
Fun Spot America debuted on Christmas Eve 1997 as a small five-acre park with go-karts, rides and an arcade. Twenty-three years later, Fun Spot America has grown to include three different locations and over 100 total acres of family fun. The flagship Orlando location includes the city’s first wooden roller coaster. The Kissimmee park has more than 29 rides and attractions, including the world’s largest sky coaster and Florida’s only inverted wooden coaster. The Atlanta location is home to the Samson go-kart track, plus a brand-new Ferris wheel, indoor bumper cars, batting cages and more.
