Lets get to know her even better! 😀
Name: Renee Ambos
Company: Fun Spot America Theme Parks
Position: Director of Sales
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
What did you want to be when you grew up? Dr. Dolittle – who doesn’t wish they could talk to animals. Plus I grew up on the farm, so that skill set really would have helped!
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life what would it be and why? I would say stuffed cabbage, because I’d never have to cook a meal again! Thanks to my partner!
What movie title best describes your life? Tarzan – I love the outdoors and getting away from the concrete jungle, but I clean up ok too!
If you were stranded on a Desert Island and could only take 3 items what would they be and why? String, Cup with a lid and a Hatchet. I think the hatchet itself makes loads of sense. The string would be to tie up any loose ends around the place. The cup would ideal hold the rain water for me to drink. With that said, hopefully I’d make it out alive!
Would you rather be able to time travel into the past or the future and why? Future, Keep moving forward!!!!
How would you describe your theme park / attraction using only 3 words? Four story go-karts!
What was the highlight of 2017 for your company? In 2017 our Fun Spot Kissimmee location, next door to Old Town opened up Mine Blower! It’s our newest Wooden hybrid Roller Coaster that drops you 80 ft and takes you straight into a barrel roll! In case you missed that, YES this wooden roller coaster goes upside down!
What are you most looking forward to in 2018? 2018 is going to be an interesting year. We are going to be focusing on our in park guest experiences. We know that “you” have a choice when you are booking your Orlando Vacation. What sets Fun Spot apart is our guest experience once you are in the park. We treat you like family, not a customer. Fun Spot may not have any characters or castles, but we do offer that perfect half day experience at a price that doesn’t break the bank. If you have not been to the park yet. I’m telling you, you won’t make that same mistake after the first time you’ve been. I promise you.
PLUS we just purchased our 3rd park location in Fayetteville, Georgia just 20 miles south of the Atlanta airport. The park is currently under renovations, and is looking to open Spring 2018.
Favourite Theme Park ride/attraction of 2017? Mine Blower will knock your socks off. It’s high intensity, with a smooth ride. There is nothing better than dropping 80ft and going straight into a barrel roll. It really is a Roller Coaster for the adrenaline seeker. With the dips and turns the ride is unexpectedly amazing. This ride is a beauty that packs a punch.
Best Theme Park/attraction tip? I highly recommend visiting Fun Spot on your arrival or departure days. The key here is you want to have fun, but still take it easy. With virtually no queue and free admission for none riders. Stay for as little or as long as you like. Did I mention that we are open until midnight 365 days a year. If you are lucky enough to visit during non-peak season. The major Theme Parks close earlier in the off season. You can just pay for the children to go on the rides, and the adults can enter the park for free and enjoy themselves a pint.
Tell us something we don’t know about Florida… Over in the Cocoa Beach area, during the summer time. It is bioluminescence season. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, think of putting your hand in water at night, and the water glows everywhere you move! I have a stand up paddle board, and you can watch all the little and BIG fish swim under your boards and around you. Remember the water glows, so you can get an idea of how amazing mother nature really is. It’s spectacular to see, and remember no flash with your cameras!
A cracking interview from Renee and I’d like to take the opportunity to thank her for getting involved. Our own Teresa has visited Fun Spot this year and absolutely loved Mine Blower! You can purchase Fun Spot tickets directly from Orlando Attraction Tickets.
