Fun Spot America Announces Name of 2017 Coaster

Fun Spot America yesterday announced “Mine Blower” as the name of its new-for-2017¬†inverting wooden roller coaster.

The Kissimmee, Florida, amusement park (separate from the Orlando park) announced the Gravity Group wooden coaster in December, but withheld the name and theme of the coaster. Mine BLower will sport a mining/rocket theme with appropriately themed trains.

In addition to the name revealing, Fun Spot America also announced that the coaster will feature two “mine tunnels.”
