Fun Spot America SkyCoaster construction

Fun Spot America, the amusement park on Orlando's International Drive, is currently adding a 250-foot-tall SkyCoaster attraction to its line-up.

The new addition will be the second-tallest ride of its kind in the world, after the 300-foot version at Kissimmee's Fun Spot. It previously operated in Las Vegas, and will form part of a £20 million expansion at Fun Spot America that includes the opening of two new roller coasters.

The park has released a time-lapse video showing construction of the SkyCoaster, which is embedded below alongside footage of the ride in action at its former home at the MGM Grand.

The SkyCoaster will still need to pass a state inspection, an engineering inspection and further tests before it can open to the public. It will offer a hang-glider style experience, with guests swinging through its central arch attached to lengthy cables.

John Arie, Jr., Fun Spot America's General manager, said of the park's new ride: "You will be able to see this ride from I-4, the malls, and for miles around. This will be a huge thing for I-Drive."
