My son and I spent a few hours at Fun Spot the other day. It’s an Orlando amusement park with go-karts, bumper cars, a Ferris wheel, carousel and tons of indoor games, most notably air hockey, my son’s new favorite.
Let me tell you – those go-karts are crazy fun! The instant we accelerated in our two-seat, gas-powered machine, my little cohort was screaming in exhilaration and working his steering wheel enthusiastically (the one not actually connected to anything). He loved every second of speeding up the hills and around the curves of the multi-level track. The biggest rush was cresting the highest point and zooming down the steep incline to the lowest level.
I fondly recall the excitement of riding go-karts with my dad back in the early 70s in Myrtle Beach, our home away from home when I was growing up. You can bet that Guitar Dad will return to Fun Spot soon and often.
