Fun Spot's White Lightning is up and running...

Thursday, June 13, 2013 10:50 PM

In the summer of 1997 I was spending my Birthday at the Mouse House and I noticed several shops at EPCOT were selling shirts that depicted the Brazilian Flag and the word "Brasil" printed under the flag. I asked the cashier was EPCOT advertising a new Pavilion for the World Showcase. Instead I was told they were expecting a large group of Brazilians to be visiting in the next few days so they decided to break out these shirts to sell to them.

IMO I was kind of bummed. I envisioned what a Brazilian-Themed Pavilion would look like. I imagined the the following, A Churrascaria, An Amazon River - Themed Ride and a Carnival-Themed Show. Oh well, maybe some day.

PS as i mentioned earlier I've been to Brazil four times, IMHO it's most likely the closest thing I'll ever experience to being on another planet!

I envisioned topless beaches and a waxing station, but to each their own.

I guess they could have those and Caberet Shows in the French Pavilion too. Bear in mind their Parks are currently dedicated to the whole family. (With the exception of a certain week they set aside for "them".

Thanks for the tip. I had no idea that Disney parks were geared toward families.

LOL, I put it in quotes to indicate a lack of seriousness...

Maybe if my avatar was me in a silly hat...?

Two words: Tyler marks.

No, no, I understood the levity intended, but I sensed this fun thread was about to turn another direction and frankly I'm not in the mood today to be havin' it.

Thank you, Bakeman, I knew what he meant. I was just hangin around here hoping Regulus would come back by to explain his uncalled for remark. And when he does, friends, I got this.

Not to hijack or anything...:-)

I think he meant those knuckle draggin' Star Wars fans. ;)

Yes, we need to get back on track. From what I've heard it looks like White Lightning is a fun little ride and I look forward to riding it with ACE next summer (And stuffing myself silly at the Brazilian Restaurants). :)

I know you knew that. I was just going for some blunt humor.

Hey everyone, I know I haven't been on here much lately. Is anyone planning to ride this at all? The double up and down looks promising. Also, what's with all the Tyler stuff?


You don't need a parachute to jump out of an airplane. You need one to do it again.

Yeah, I noticed that. Thanks for the break.

Nope. No one is planning on riding this. At all.

We're not gossiping for you about Tyler or anyone else. Read for yourself.

Sorry I didn't read this before, but I agree. It's not what you have, It's what you do with what you have. For further info see Indiana Beach's Lost Coaster Of Superstition Mountain, Arnold's Park's Legend, Quassy's Wooden Warrior or Idlewild's Rollo Coaster, among others.
