Fun Spot America Atlanta has announced that the park will be teaming up with Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) for a brand-new roller coaster, scheduled to debut in 2022.
The new roller coaster will be the first of many new marquee rides and attractions to come for Fun Spot Atlanta.
“RMC is a highly sought-after designer and manufacturer of award-winning roller coasters,” said John Arie, Jr., CEO. “We’re pleased to be able to provide huge thrills for families and coaster enthusiasts at our Atlanta park.”
RMC is a fabricator and manufacturer of extreme roller coasters located in Hayden, Id. Over the years, the manufacturer has been known for its transformation of wooden roller coasters into new hybrid experiences. Founder and owner Fred Grubb created RMC’s notable steel Ibox track — which uses steel I-beams to replace the traditional layered wooden track design. The idea for this was to reduce maintenance costs and increase the coaster’s longevity while providing high-speed twists, turns, and inversions.
“We’re excited to be working with Fun Spot America and thrilled to be bringing a fantastic new RMC coaster to Atlanta,” said Grubb.
“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with RMC coasters because we love their world-renowned products, family-owned and operated business mindset, and know this is a perfect fit for the Fun spot family. We can’t wait to see the final project and the huge positive impact it will have on the park for years to come,” added Arie, Jr.
Details on the new roller coaster have yet to be announced, but Fun Spot is “pursuing a naming rights sponsorship opportunity with one of Atlanta’s major sports franchises.”
The park is also seeking to hire an additional 250 employees in all departments as they gear up for the summer season. Starting wages begin at $11.75 per hour, and all employees must pass a drug screening. Benefits include summer and Christmas bonuses, discounts on tickets, food and beverage, leadership and training courses, and more.
“From what the attendance numbers have been showing since reopening, people are ready to get out and enjoy themselves again,” said Arie, Jr. “We feel this summer will be even better than years before, but we need friendly and dedicated workers who are eager to begin their career in the amusement industry.”
