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.

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

The control system was provided by Irvine Ondrey Engineering.
