Huge is about to get huge-er as Fun Spot America has debuted two new coasters as part of an expansion that will almost triple the size of the park off of International Drive.

Freedom Flyer, their Vekoma suspended family coaster, has already been open to the public for almost a week. The coaster, made by Chance Rides, is 1,200+ feet long, 64 feet high and reaches a speed of 34 mph. Below you’ll find an on-ride POV and off-ride footage.

If you would like to head out to Fun Spot and ride these coasters, unlimited armbands are available at $39.95 for guests 54″ and taller, $29.95 if you’re under 54″, or you can just purchase one ride on either coaster for $9. Annual passes are also available for $119.95

Though the two roller coasters are open to the public, their Skycoaster is still being tested and not open yet. Fun Spot America’s expansion will officially open June 8, 2013. Special thanks to Theme Park Review for providing the POV footage.
