White Lightning is a wooden roller coaster located at Fun Spot America in Orlando, Florida, USA. Built by Great Coasters International, the ride is part of a large expansion and opened alongside Freedom Flyer, a Vekoma junior inverted roller coaster. The ride has a L-shaped out and back layout and consists of wooden track and steel supports. A near-clone of the ride is opening in 2017. It will be named Heidi: The Ride and will be located at Plopsaland De Panne. It is not quite a clone as it has been edited slightly to fit its location. Also, some of the stats are slightly different.

Design[edit]

Despite having an out and back layout, the ride features multiple banked-turns and swerves.

The control system was provided by Irvine Ondrey Engineering.
