White Lightning is a wooden hybrid 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 an L-shaped out and back layout and consists of wooden track and steel supports. A near-clone of White Lightning called Heidi The Ride opened in 2017 at Plopsaland De Panne. It has a slightly different layout in order to fit in the available space.


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

The control system was provided by Irvine Ondrey Engineering.

A 55-foot section of steel track was installed on the ride in September 2020. It was the first instance of the Titan Track product to be installed on a roller coaster and was designed and engineered by Skyline Attractions.[1]


2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 12 riders per train.
