Fun Spot Partners With RMC For New Coaster
Fun Spot America Atlanta has officially partnered with Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) on the next “BIG” thing for Atlanta — in fact, it’s so big you’ll say…it’s HUGE!
A new roller coaster design process is underway and scheduled to debut in 2022. Thrill seekers from around the world will soon be buzzing about the impact this partnership will have on the Atlanta area.
Fun Spot officials say to “Hold on tight because this will be Fun Spot America’s largest Roller Coaster investment ever!”.
The new roller coaster will be the first of many new marque rides and attractions yet to come to Fun Spot Atlanta.
“RMC is a highly sought-after designer and manufacturer of award-winning roller coasters. We’re pleased to be able to provide HUGE thrills for families and coaster enthusiasts at our Atlanta park,” says CEO John Arie Jr.
Rocky Mountain Construction, often referred to as RMC, is a fabricator and manufacturer of extreme roller coasters located in Hayden, Idaho. Over the years, RMC has been known for its transformation of wooden roller coasters into new hybrid attractions. Founder and owner, Fred Grubb created RMC’s notable steel Ibox track which uses steel I-beams to replace the traditional layered wooden track design. The idea of this was to reduce maintenance costs and increase the coaster’s longevity while providing awesome high-speed twists, turns, and inversions.
Below is a sneak peek of the first piece of track for the new ride. There is no paint on it yet, as it is still being fabricated at RMC’s shop in Idaho.
“We’re excited to be working with Fun Spot America and thrilled to be bringing a fantastic new RMC coaster to Atlanta,” said Grubb.
John Arie Jr. said, “We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with RMC because we love their world- renowned products, family-owned and operated business mindset, and know this is a perfect fit for the Fun Spot family. We can’t wait to see the final project and the HUGE positive impact it will have on the park for years to come.”
Fun Spot America has yet to announce any specifics about the new coaster, but the park is pursuing a naming rights sponsorship opportunity with one of Atlanta’s major sports franchises.
