Fun Spot Debuts New Wooden Coaster

See recent posts by Morgan Agesen

Fun Spot in Kissimmee, Florida, just outside of Orlando, has debuted its newest thrill ride, The Mine Blower.

The $6-million wooden rollercoaster, designed and built by The Gravity Group, features an initial drop of 80.5 feet and reaches speeds of up to 48 mph! The ride also reaches a height of 82 feet and does one 360-degree barrel roll down the 2,256-foot track.

The Mine Blower is the first wooden rollercoaster to go upside down not just once, but twice, and is the only wooden coaster in the Orlando area.

The ride is included in an all-day ride pass at Fun Spot, but guests can opt to pay $9 if they just want to ride the coaster. Guests must be at least 48 inches tall to ride.
