It's literally NOT across the street from Universal. Unless of course you consider I-4 a "Street" and you ignore all the other little streets in the way...

You mean the complete other end of town! Fun Spot Kissimmee is about as far away from Universal Orlando in terms of "theme park distance" as you can get here in Orlando.

Also, Fun Spot's coaster isn't an RMC so why is that even being brought up?


Well at least one good thing came out of this discussion. I know now that public transport won't be an option when we finally do an Orlando trip. Although since we want our son to be old enough to remember it and do all the big coasters they've got around 10 years to make it better. ;)

I had a good time going to Universal for my first time last year, even without Hulk...but this really isn't something that is going to get me to come back, I don't think Fast and Furious will either. I spent 3 days there and I would have rather spent that last day somewhere else, Fun Spot, Disney, SeaWorld, anywhere really. I enjoyed my time there but Universal got old for me pretty quick with a lot of their offerings being basically the same. Until they change that, I'll plan my next Florida visit around Disney.

Hulk is enough to at least stop in for a day. IMO, it's the best coaster in Orlando.
Top 10 coasters: 1. Millennium Force; 2. Incredible Hulk; 3. Maverick; 4. Raptor; 5. Top Thrill Dragster; 6. Valravn; 7. GateKeeper; 8. Kraken; 9. Rougarou; 10. Shivering Timbers
