I always thought the problems with woodies down south was year-round operation. Ghostrider could use a year off at this point.

I did a bunch of laps on White Lightning tonight. Even though I'm told it could use some lube (insert jokes about "Fun Spot" and "It's huge!" here), I thought it was a great little ride. So much air time on such a little ride. I was totally impressed.

We rode it about a month ago now during the soft openings and the first night we rode it was really good, although the track was a bit dry. The next night, it was just lubed up and hit a whole new level. By the end of the week the track was drying back out a bit and was not running AS good, although even dry it runs awesome.

I always used to think track lube was a near daily maintence thing for most wooden coasters, but I see it tends to be a bit more optional depending on the park. Hopefully FunSpot keeps that oil flowing though, because when greased up the ride runs amazing-er.

Recently had the chance to activate my annual pass for Fun Spot (they were having a great special for black friday -$90 for both parks for a year). Happy to say White Lightning is still running fantastic, extremely smooth with plenty of airtime.
