Thanks for sharing the pictures! Wildfire looks absolutely amazing! I'm still struggling to comprehend that we now actually have an RMC here in Scandinavia. I'm planning to head over to Sweden in August, really looking forward to it. =)

I have just received this message from Mattais at Kolmarden:

Wildfire will not open today due to technical problems.

The manufacturers have made us aware of a potential defect on a part in the trains.

We have not detected any fault on our trains, but for us it is a matter of following the instructions from the manufacturers of the attraction. We are very sorry for those who where looking forward to ride Wildfire today and the next few days. We are working hard to move as quickly as possible to get Wildfire up and running, but we anticipate that it will take at least 3-5 days.

According to the local newspaper, Kolmården will replace cylinders that keep the restraints in place. Some kind of manufacturing error has been discovered on another park location and the park will therefore take extra measures to make sure that Wildfire is equipped with the correct parts. They expect it to take 3-5 days to get the new parts and to do some testing.

I feel really bad for all the people who went out of their way to get to the park today just to ride Wildfire. But safety first, hope to hear some good news soon.

Does this mean that all the Rocky Mountain's, without Gerstlauer trains, are down?

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Safety first! Hopefully this doesn't mean Lightning Rod and other RMCs with the non-Gerst trains are closed as well. Although I am laughing a little bit at the people who were all making fun of Lightning Rod for not opening on time and Wildfire opening perfectly.

Let's be honest, since when does any coaster actually open on time perfectly? Heck, I remember Iron Rattler had a pretty smooth opening year.... until the NTaG incident. Stuff happens.
1. Fury 325 | 2. Millennium Force | 3. New Texas Giant | 4. Outlaw Run | 5. Maverick | 6. Twisted Cyclone | 7. Iron Rattler | 8. The Voyage | 9. Goliath (SFGAm) | 10. Time Traveler

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Guess that could be true as Lightning Rod also seems to be closed until next week, look at the Dollywood thread.
