Fun Town Fire Academy

Track ride
Minimum height to ride: 34 inches

The Fun Town Fire Academy defies conventional theme park categories. It's not a dark ride, a playground or a show. Perhaps my six-year-old daughter best categorized it when she declared, "it's like a challenge on Survivor!"

Up to four people work together as a team to power a rather large fire engine down a track, where a "burning" building awaits. Four teams are competing to see which can get to the fire, put it out by soaking a target with water, then get back to the starting line first.

On April 12, 2011, Fun Town Fire Academy will become Police and Fire Academy. Two of the four tracks on each side the attraction will become banks or stores with robbers you'll have to knock down with the water hoses.

Fun competitive activity - we loved it, and all the other "firefighters" were giggling and laughing too. The line was short and moved quickly. - Robyn A.
