Kissimmee, Florida – On June 23rd, The Gravity Group’s newest wooden roller coaster, Mine Blower, opened to the public at Fun Spot America in Kissimmee, Florida. Fans lined up early for the opening ceremony, which opened the ride with a real “bang”.
Mine Blower, the first inverting wooden roller coaster in Florida, was then unleashed to deliver thrills to the public. The ride features a zero-g roll, overbanked turn, and some very compact thrills made possible only by the Timberliner trains. The ride was designed and manufactured by The Gravity Group / Gravitykraft Corp. For more fun facts, visit the ride’s fact page.
Take a front-seat ride on Mine Blower, or – even better – go visit Fun Spot America and experience it for yourself!
