It started as Fun N Wheels in Orlando in 1979. In 1990, it opened the first Fun Spot Amusement Park in Myrtle Beach, SC. It opened a second in Virginia Beach, VA. Both closed in 1998. They moved back to Orlando in 1997. They opened Fun Spot Action Park in Orlando, FL on December 24, 1997. They bought land from Bill Kitchen, the land, which was in Kissimmee, had the largest SkyCoaster in the world (it holds this title to this day), Fun Spot developed the land to a new park that opened as Fun Spot USA in 2007. In 2010, they bought 10 acres of vacant land next to Fun Spot Action Park, which became an expansion that opened in 2013. They renamed both parks to Fun Spot America- Orlando and Fun Spot America- Kissimmee. The Orlando park then had a small expansion, in collaboration with Gatorland, to make Gator Spot, which houses a rare White Bouya Gator. Gator Spot opened on May 11, 2015. There are new planned expansions for the Orlando park. They have operated 5 amusement areas in their history (Fun N Wheels in Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Virginia Beach, Orlando, and Kissimmee), with the last four being theme parks. They are planning to expand their Orlando park. They are also planning to make a new park along west US 192.
