Fun spot in Kissimmee announced a new wooden coaster from Gravity group with 11 airtime hills, a barrel roll, and max height of 82 feet.

Orlando Sentinel

This is my most anticipated ride of 2017. Not only because it is gonna be 30 mins away from me, but because it seems to have the best layout of all the wooden coasters I've seen for 2017.

I would also like to state that this will be the only wooden coaster with an inversion by my book. RMC topper track doesn't count.

Hades 360 has an inversion. It's in Wisconsin Dells. I believe it was built by the Gravity Group as well.

Ah, good catch, I forgot about that one. Still, quite excited for this ride.

Glad to see Fun Spot expanding the Kissimmee location. This park felt so rundown when I was there in summer. They added a Ferris wheel right outside the entrance to Old Town which brightens up the area pretty well.

Now I actually have a good reason to return here.

Excited to see Gravity Group building something in the US for once. It's been quite a while.

Mine Blower will be the name of the new coaster.

Walked around Old Town on Tuesday... I don't have high hopes for this coaster.

The location is bad, but I'm convinced that this is going to be the best new ride of 2017 for the US. Can't wait to ride it in a few months.

^I don't mind the location. It's just a few lights down from one of my vacation rentals! :p

I remember seeing that before. However, there was a certain cognitive dissonance which told me that it couldn't be real.

In an totally unrelated question, isn't there a huge painkiller overuse epidemic in Florida?

I mean it fits the theme for the coaster, not sure why you'd knock the design. Also WTF do painkillers have to do with anything?

I've been seeing a ton of people disliking the design online. I really just don't get the issue to be honest? I think they look fairly good actually...

Here's a construction update featuring Korey Kiepert from Gravity Group.  Height requirement is 48" and the station will have an ADA elevator.
