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 a 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.
Design[edit | edit source]
Despite having an out and back layout, the ride features multiple banked turns and swerves.
The control system was provided by Irvine Ondrey Engineering.
At present, GCI was testing their new steel track, recently unveiled at IAAPA 2019, on parts of White Lightning. A section of the ride was later fitted with this track in September 2020.
