Believe it or not, the drop is only 65°. Certainly feels a lot steeper than that. It has mad airtime on that drop in the back.

^ Totally agree, Andrew.

To be honest, the first drop reminded me a little of Magnum's...

Great lift hill view, a nice whip over the hill in the back and just good fun after that.

Seeing the surrounding area really increases the sensation of height. Wildfire is seriously of my favorite B&M loopers (#1 is still Raptor).

I'd probably rank my top 3 something like this
1. Raptor
2. Wildfire
3. Thunderbird
1. Millennium Force | 2. New Texas Giant | 3. Outlaw Run | 4. Maverick | 5. Iron Rattler | 6. The Voyage | 7. Diamondback | 8. ShockWave | 9. Wonder Woman: Golden Lasso Coaster | 10. Raptor

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

It's also the worst floorless with a floor. :lol:

Honestly, I wish that B&M would make another sit-down coaster with those open trains. They look so nice!

It's been quite an interesting year at SDC! On top of them getting a $26 million dollar Mack Coaster they also got a new steam train engine brought into service! This is exciting news for all you theme park train enthusiasts! :)

Say hello to Engine 504:
