White Lightning at Fun Spot America – Orlando
5700 Fun Spot Way
Orlando’s big attractions are racing against each other to deliver the latest in ride technology, from 4K 3-D to trackless vehicles, but I-Drive’s Fun Spot built this year’s top new roller coaster by looking backward. Retro-styled and suitable for the whole family, White Lightning is the best (and only) wooden coaster in town, with a vertical mid-course U-turn and dynamite double-up hills creating crazy airtime until the final brakes. Tickets run $9 for a single ride and $39.95 for an all-day wristband.
