Fun Spot says that Mine Blower will open on June 23rd, 8 days from this post. Although, I highly doubt it will open then considering that they haven't even begun testing yet.

They opened White Lightning only 6 days after testing. Barring any serious issues, they shouldn't have any problem opening it by the 23rd.

I need a front-facing back-row POV of this thing during the day. It looks incredible.

Hey, I never meant to imply it wasn't a good idea, just that it is kinda silly. The two are not mutually exclusive.

So I got to ride this not too long ago. Its pretty awesome!

The ride was starting to feel rough around the edges. Especially in the back row. If Fun Spot doesn't take care of this ride I can see it becoming Gwazi rough in a few years. I have faith in them that they will though.

The ride itself is hella fun. Loads of air, quick transitions, pretty smooth, and the zero G throws you around quite a bit. The turns have a bit of a shake but it doesn't affect the ride quality that much.

I don't know how it would compare to White Lightning but both are pretty close in my rankings. Lightning is definitely the smoother of the two but Mine Blower is definitely more intense.

Fun layout and it's cool that I finally got to ride a wooden coaster with inversions. However, it was still a bit rough and not nearly as fun as With Lightning.

Mine Blower 6/10
White Lightning 8/10
