I am so pumped to hear this! I originally wanted to go on the Scandi trip last year, but it wouldn't have worked out with work. Then I planned for 2015, but upon Wildfire's announcement delayed it till next year! I have been thinking I might have to delay it another year which would have been quite the bummer! Although I'm sure there's a reason to go back every year for those of you that have been!

Earlier today, Vekoma posted this on their Facebook-page, along with a new render of the ride.

We are back on track with Wildfire, The new record breaking Wood Coaster in cooperation with Rocky Mountains Construction.

Am I the only one who noticed the Goliath like truss support on the first drop?? Maybe there is even more in store for this coaster than we think! A first drop with supports like Goliath would make this coaster look even more intimidating! Regardless, glad to see the coaster is back on track!

Haha I like how they said "in cooperation with Rocky Mountains Construction." as if RMC was just giving a little help with the ride

Does this mean that we will be seeing a new POV? :p

You could be onto something with that, but as of now I don't think that we can see that as a possible new structure for the ride. The lift also has that truss structure if you look closely, and I think it's more of a coincidence that it happened that way - they must have taken the part of the photo from Goliath, which has the truss like that, when they were simulating and photo shopping the coaster in there. I'm not saying it can't happen, as of now, I just think it's a coincidence and isn't solid proof of a metal truss structure.

Glad to hear everything is on track for 2016! This looks like it will be an incredible addition to the park!

Robb or any local Swedes have any latest and greatest info on Wildfire? It's been silent since July. Any construction progress that anyone knows of?
