The year White Lightning opened I stopped by Fun Spot. At the time they offered what I think they called a "trial pack" that gave four rides on anything. Worked well to grab the credits and get an extra ride on White Lightning. It was a slight discount off of buying the same number of individual rides. Does the Kissimmee park offer something similar?

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Nothing of the sort that I saw the other night. You could load money onto your Fun-e-Card, get a single day or season pass, but that was about it.

This is a little short on pics, but boy oh boy do I love Funspot. The staff is great and really wowed us several times. Our extended weekend started out with going to Orlando's Pride Fest Weekend. Friday we got to party with Ultra Nate backstage, and wow is she cool and does she have a ra..., sorry, I'll stop. ( pics if you want). So yeah, there was a parade etc etc on Sat, but the real fun was on Sunday. Stopped for brunch and bloody Mary's at the Hammered Lamb, ( oh wow) Then headed to Funspot in Kissemmee. Driving down I-4 passing White Lightning in O Town was tough but we had bigger fishes to fry, namely Mine Blower. Mind you, I haven't done many parks this year as I had 2 heart attacks and under went surgeries twice this year. I was dying to ride coasters. My Doc gave me the all clear and I was ready ! Now here is where we get to the awesomeness that is FunSpot. We get to the gate and we had 2 passes we bought back in 2014 for their anniversary celebration for 15 bucks. Didn't think they would be good, but, Surprise, they honored them ! Got our arm bands and rushed to Mine Blower and found, what? the line was down the stairs onto the midway. Holy Toledo, a line? Thanks to, here's the 2nd wow, the crew was pumping like crazy. We had a 3 train wait that only took minutes. That crew was hauling. Get in, pull down, check and out the door ya' go. They might even try to beat Knoebs loading, sorta. Mine Blower, like Coasterbill and XViceandvirtues said, this coaster will blow your !!! Ho;y Cow Is it amazing. Not rough, just waayy waayy intense. Rode every seat front to back. WOW. Then we rode next the other new hotness, HeadRush 360. OMG, I didn't think I could handle it, but I loved it ! Long story short, had so much fun, got a cheapy room next door so we cold stay all night. Had dinner and went back for more rides. Rode MB 10 times, Rockstar coaster 6 times, tilt a whirl, yo yo and other flats. Seeing as we got the deal on the ride bands we also had "several" adult bevs, munchies, bought a on ride pic and , my fave to leave by, cotton candy.At 15 to midnight my hubs found out why they call a ride a spin and puke. We had one last ride on 360 and thankfully he made it to the bushes. Hehe. I still got 1 more ride on MB tho. If anyone has the chance, Mine Blower is a must do. So now a few pics.

^ Daaaammmn Mark...sorry to hear of your past medical conditions, but glad that you're mended enough to finally get on some coasters and rides!

Hopefully we will be able to get Michael on some rides again after his cancer scare, horrible surgical snafu's and extended hospital stay, but one step at a time.

Oh yeah, at 102 there ain't enough WD-40 in the world to stop them old bones from a creakin. Glad I am back and making up for lost time a'riding. =) (edit to add) Hopefully Mr M kicks it too. Too many coasters out there waiting to ride.
