Fun Spot America is one of the few independent theme parks in Orlando. If you don’t like the idea of tackling the enormous list of attractions and rides at one of the more famous Orlando theme parks, Fun Spot America is a nice alternative. This particular Orlando amusement park stays clear of any branded rides promoting movies or Hollywood gimmicks. Instead, it focuses on offering adrenaline-filled rollercoasters, go-karting tracks and a whole bunch of attractions for younger kids to enjoy.
