White Lightning construction

The Fun Spot America amusement park in Orlando has released a new image of its under-construction wooden roller coaster, White Lightning.

Due to open later this year, White Lightning is being constructed by specialist Great Coasters International, inc. (GCII), and will be highly visible from the International Drive road that runs alongside Fun Spot America. It will feature a 2000-feet-long circuit, and a maximum height of 75-feet. At the foot of its 58-degree first drop, the ride will hit a top speed of 48 miles per hour, before racing through a series of twists and turns, including a record-breaking 90-degree banked turn.

Fun Spot America is currently adding a 250-foot-tall SkyCoaster attraction to its line-up. The new addition will be the second-tallest ride of its kind in the world, after the 300-foot version at Kissimmee's Fun Spot.
