Fun Spot’s New Wooden Roller Coaster – White Lightning
Orlando amusement park, Fun Spot Action Park, is adding a Great Coasters International wooden roller coaster for 2013. I mentioned it in a post about unannounced and rumored 2013 roller coasters. Now we know the ride will be called White Lightning and the park has been posting construction photos as they prepare to build one of Florida’s few wooden roller coasters.
With theme parks like Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld and Disney nearby, I’d have to imagine that Fun Spot has an entirely different target. I’ve never visited, but they’re probably aiming for a more laid back and less expensive experience. So, a family-friendly woodie like White Lightning looks to be a good fit.
I’ll check out the ride the next time I’m in the Orlando. New wooden coaster credits aren’t easy to come by. Plus, I haven’t been on a new GCI woodie in quite a while. Recently, the park posted an image of a sign advertising White Lighting. In it, you can see how the trains might be designed. I hope that they end up with this look. The theming on the front car is a very nice touch.
