Central Florida has a new thrill ride, the first of its kind in Florida.
Mine Blower, the $6 million wooden roller coaster from The Gravity Group, LLC, started taking riders on Friday, June 23, at Fun Spot in Kissimmee, Florida.
At 82 feet tall, with an initial drop of 80.5 feet, Mine Blower reaches speeds of up to 48 mph. It also includes one 360-degree barrel roll and a 115-degree over-banked curve along its 2,256-foot track. The first wooden coaster in Florida to go upside down has two trains of six cars, holding 12 riders per train, and is built on a steel structure.
