While I thought Mine Blower was a little rough and I experienced some shuffling, I thought the strong airtime made up for it. But I am curious as to how the ride will age and how well the park takes care of it.

Stopping through Orlando in a few weeks. Will have a chance to get 1 ride on each Fun Spot coaster. Any input on where to sit for each coaster? Front? Middle? Back?

Funny story, I prefer back seat on White Lightning but front seat on Mine Blower. But honestly, the queues are often so short that you can get multiple rides in minutes.

I'm actually the opposite on both coasters- back on Mine Blower (the drop is so good back there) and front on White Lightning (bunny hops are better).

I guess you should try both to decide for yourself. :)

Has anyone done the skysled yet? How is it?

Thinking of hitting both fun spots next month (not on the same day)... I've already done the Orlando park / White Lightning but haven't done Mine Blower yet. The Orlando park will be too close to my hotel to not marathon WL one evening.

With so many mixed reviews of mine blower I'm debating to get a wristband or just go to that fun spot in Kissimmee to ride MB once or twice (once in front, once in back? = $20?) and then enjoy the wrist band at the Orlando location. Is SkySled at the Orlando location too? It's not listed on the site.

Is there enough difference between the two parks to warrant a wristband at both? I know they do the $99 season pass but I have no reason to go to either again this year.

MineBlower is a bit more intense fun with a few shuffling spots and Lightning has more airtime and reride-ability.

In case anyone was wondering, here are some other ticket options offered at the park (no mention of them online on the website), from the live online chat i had with them:

1) is it true you can visit both parks the same day by upgrading your wristband for $10 so you can get both parks?
-- Yes, that is correct. $10 upgrade per armband to go to the second park.

2) If I want to visit two separate days, (one day at each park) do you offer a 2 park ticket?
-- We do not offer a 2-park ticket.

3) Do you offer an evening only ticket?
-- Yes, we have an evening special after 9PM. Passes go down to $30. These can only be purchased in-park.

^I would say if you're going on 2 separate days (or more), you may as well get the season pass for $99. It includes all 3 parks.
Coaster Count: 128
Top 10:
1-Steel Vengeance...2-Fury 325...3-Maverick...4-Millennium Force...5-Storm Chaser
6-Mako...7-Montu...8-Kraken...9-Diamondback...10-Twisted Cyclone

And the season pass includes $10 Skycoaster rides. That is a must at the Kissimmee location.
