Last week, Fun Spot posted the above photo to their Facebook page with the caption "You’ve heard rumors of a lot of new things coming to Fun Spot America Orlando. But we’ve got something COOL coming to our park next month. Can anyone guess what can possibly go in this HUGE spot?" The comments section lit up with tons of ideas, ranging from a dirt track date spot to a boat ride based on Norway. (Those Maelstrom fans just won't let it go, will they?)
In addition to the completely wild theories (seriously, someone guessed EXTREME BULL RIDING!), there were a few educated guesses based on rumors of a the owner wanting to put in some water slides or a mini-water park. This goes with the capitalizied "COOL" in the caption, but it's the wrong time of year for that, isn't it? And a month seems like a short amount of time to put up a safe water slide.
There was one other guess that may have hit the nail right on it's COOL head, based on vehicles that one Facebook user has seen hanging around the Orlando location: Snow Magic! This tweet from bioreconstruct kind of seals the deal:
It seems like this is a major clue to the cool new attraction opening Nov @FunSpotAmerica http://t.co/RglmqYx6ty pic.twitter.com/WQIjAeHzMV

As of right now, there are no details on what the snowy goodness will include, but we've got our fingers crossed REALLY hard for some sledding. And snowball fights. But mostly sledding.
