Just rode it three times tonight... Such a great little ride! It surprised me how fun it was... Smooth with great, quick elements. Very rerideable.

Hope to make it back again before we leave to ride it more.

This! When I stopped by yesterday it was running so much faster than earlier in the week (and WAY faster than the film shoot on Monday). It's like an entirely different ride now! It was flying into the final brake run (while the last section used to be pretty slow). So happy to see this.

Looks like a fun cute mini Prowler. Florida needs a wooden coaster.

Yeah they oiled the track late in the day on Thursday, and it's been hauling major ass ever since. I think they should stick with oiling the track every now and then. :airtimer:

Got another 18 laps or so tonight... The ride is flying through the course! Running much faster compared to the POVs from media day.

So for those who have been on it how would you rank it compared to the other GCI's?

I teach at the school of donkey!

For my GCI rankings:

Thunderhead
American Thunder (Evel Knievel)
Prowler
Lightning Racer
Kentucky Rumbler
White Lightning
Apocalypse (Terminator)
Wildcat
Roar
Gwazi

While it looks like White Lightning is low on my list, I have it at #16 on my overall woodie list (which includes over 70). Definitely a great ride.

After seeing every little step of progress, I am actually most looking forward to the Funspot expansion over Seaworld's unfortunate flop and Universals unoriginal Transformers ride.

Great job Funspot, it looks HUGE!

I am shocked to see Rumbler so low on those lists!
