Fun Spot America has announced a new long-range master plan for their Orlando park. The expansion will increase the size of the park and include a new waterpark, roller coaster and other major rides.

The proposed plan, created in conjunction with Falcon’s Creative Group, includes six new themes that will be applied across the entire park over the next five to 10 years. The theme of the newly remodeled park will be Americana: classic American past and present time periods. The goal is to enhance the park’s current family fun experience and create new areas that contribute to the Fun Spot brand.

The first phase will start with the first of half of a new waterpark to be built on vacant land between Gator Spot and the front of the park. Although specific water-based attractions haven’t been announced yet, they’re expected to include slides, fountains and play areas. This area is should open in spring 2017.

The second half of the first phase will be the other half of the water park and is expected to include a log flume ride. This new area will take over part of the current parking lot.

Future plans beyond that include developing the land across the street, which currently includes a gravel overflow lot. This new area is planned to include a parking garage and a new roller coaster, possibly a hyper-coaster. Other future plans include moving the Ferris wheel to sit on top of the current entrance building, a new sky bucket ride, new food and beverage partners and many more attractions.

“The new master plan will give guests a chance to step into different eras and experiences all under one ultimate storyline, Americana,” said Falcon’s Creative Group Designer Brandi Monard. “We are very excited to see Fun Spot grow in the upcoming years and make an impact in the Orlando theme park community.”

It’s not yet known if entry into the waterpark will be included with a day pass or a separate charge. But entry into Fun Spot itself will remain free, with guests only needing to buy a pass if they want to experience the attractions.
