Fun Spot USA

“Fun Spot USA” next to “Old Town” in Kissimmee, Florida have recently added a couple of new additions to the park.

The new “Power Trip Coaster” allows up to 4 people to ride together side by side in each stand-alone car.
This attraction is very different from the traditional roller coasters that we all know and love in the sense that the car spins in a circle while moving along a track that curves and dips throughout. The Power Trip coaster is 42 ft. high and boasts a top speed of 29 mph giving guests an extended 1 minute 30 second ride experience.

Also open at Fun Spot USA is an air conditioned arcade which includes the newest arcade games out today. Included is a prize redemption center as motivation to play hard and win each game. The number of tickets won at the end of your stay will allow you to choose from a series of prizes available at each reclamation level.

As visitors take notice of the new attractions, don’t forget why people come here in the first place…..the Thrills! Ride the World’s Tallest SkyCoaster standing to 300 ft. in the air. After being slowly pulled to the top, riders pull their own rip cord and experience a 120 ft. free fall straight down reaching speeds of up to 85 mph before swinging out like a pendulum over the water. Guests are able to share the thrilling fear of this ride with friends and family as up to 3 can ride together and capture their emotions up close on video available for purchase afterwards.

Along with all of the adrenaline pumping rides are 4 exciting Go Cart tracks with 20 other
rides and games
throughout the park for all ages. The park is open daily 10am – Midnight rain or shine and is conveniently located directly beside Old Town. If you have the time, check it out as you have nothing to lose. Parking and admission is all free and there is restaurants and shopping for those who are not so excited about rides. This attraction is only 20 minutes for guests staying at Have a great time!

Congo River Golf

So you are on vacation in Orlando and looking for something to do without breaking the bank. One such option is Congo River Golf. This African themed adventure offers two challenging courses of 18 hole miniature golf.

As visitors putt their way through each passage, they can play the “Exploration Game” at the same time. The game consists of finding specific items had by explorers Henry Stanley and David Livingstone as they trekked the Safari more than a century ago. Locate all items and win a prize.

As mini golfers are banking shots for par, other guests can be seen enjoying more ventures such as the Congo Queen Paddleboats as they make way downstream of the blue and turquoise waters. This isn’t all fun and games though, there is some serious peddle power to be had to keep these boats in motion.

For those who want to be entertained without working as hard and breaking a sweat, there is an arcade of video games, air hockey, racing and more. Play by yourself or against family and friends. The adrenaline flows as you fight for bragging rights that will not be easily forgotten…….ever.

Lastly, take this opportunity to see Florida’s ambassador up close. Feed the live alligators that are onsite. These guys are small and medium sized and well fed. Food is looped on the end of a pole allowing you stay far enough away to not become an accident. Just do the right thing and not tease these living fossils since it is a privilege to be able to see and interact with these “dinosaur like” reptiles outside of their native habitat.

Guests staying at Orlando’s SunShiny Villa are only minutes away from this fun night out. Visitors staying in other parts of Florida should review the website to see where the closest of 9 locations is to their community. The most important thing is just be there.

Super Bowl 2009 Accommodations

Football’s main event is just around the corner. Super Bowl XLIII is being played out Feb 01, 2009 in Tampa, Florida where the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers will compete for the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy in the last game and championship of the season. With Raymond James Stadium equipped to hold 75,000 spectators, it is expected that the hotel rooms of Tampa will be sold out long before the coin toss ever takes the field.

Tickets for the largest annual US based sporting event will come at a premium as do many Super Bowl related activities. Fans who may have the opportunity to attend in person may encounter challenges such as being limited to the number of tickets acquired or the overall incremental cost of tickets limiting the number of tickets financially feasible due to budget constraints.

Visitors attending Super Bowl XLIII should consider staying in an Orlando Vacation Home. Central Florida places fans and guests in close proximity to theme park gates while being approximately one hour away from Tampa Bay’s hosted Super Bowl. The location will allow reasonable priced accommodation while providing several options for fun and food. Luxury vacation home amenities include Game Rooms, Private Pools and Big Screen TVs for anyone staying behind to watch the game on TV while enjoying the BBQ. Make the right call and choice of champions.

Orlando’s Haunted Theme Park

Visitors to Orlando, Florida looking for heart pounding and adrenaline flowing excitement need look no further. Universal Studios which is best known for its movie themed thrill rides and cartoon attractions, features a scary Halloween Horror Nights attraction yearly in the month of October. The rides are mostly closed as it showcases the following:

  • Scare Zones
  • Haunted Houses
  • Live Shows
  • 1000’s of Scareactors in uniquely created costumes

The gates open just after 6:00 p.m. as the sun starts to set and opens way to darkness. Machines cast out a fog that hovers throughout the park and provides an eerie atmosphere that leave guests vulnerable to unexpected scares or disturbing sights. As patrons make their way from one attraction to the next it will be necessary to walk through a scare zone. Screams heard from nearby victims indicate that a startling confrontation with mutants and monsters may be imminent. Visitors who lose focus of their surroundings are in danger of being rushed upon or snuck up on with maybe a deep breath into their ear. Don’t look back, just run! Although the Universal crew can jump out at any given moment and get right into your face, it seems that the one clear rule is to not physically touch anyone.

The haunted houses are each unique with new themes each year. The mood is usually set with darkness and dim lighting at best. As guests walk through narrow maze-like hallways, entrances from room to room give way to frightening images and alarming live encounters. Walls can open up as maniacs reach for you in hopes of adding another trophy to one of the disturbing houses that guests are viewing. Strobe lighting and ominous sounds of knives being sharpened sets the stage for what lies ahead.

Lastly there are live shows for those who don’t want to scream and jump out of there shoes. The Rocky Horror Picture Show was very well done whereas the magic show was disappointing. While there are disclaimers about the event being a bit much for children, there were some in attendance and they seemed to be fine. Parents will need to evaluate if appropriate for their own kids. Please note that guests are not permitted to wear costumes.

Save money on your attraction tickets and skip all the lines with the express pass. While others wait 45 minutes you will be in within 5. If travelling to the Disney area for vacation, stay in a luxury Orlando Vacation Home at affordable hotel prices.
