I also love hearing Rob narrate the on-ride experience while screaming like a little girl...

Does this mean that our hopes and dreams of seeing/ hearing this soon is shattered?

We won't be there for a couple of weeks still...


Out of curiosity, when will you be there? Since I'm also planning on going there (which European coaster fan doesn't?) very soon.

We aren't giving out our dates, sorry. We are on a private trip with friends and family at the moment. Not trying to be rude, but just trying to enjoy the parks on our own.

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


That's interesting. Each "empty queue/ close ride" we had while waiting for Lightning Rod happened when the restraints wouldn't open, causing the ride to be down for a long period of time. Maintenance had a single battery pack controller to manually unlock one row at a time for the train in the station and the train on the brakes outside of the station to let people off. In any case, it was good to know that without that very slow and specific procedure, there was no way those restraints could ever open and even when they tried to send the train around again, it wouldn't dispatch.

Sounds like something with the trains is defective?

^Are you overly obsessed with this or something? This is third thread you've posted this in.

Kolmården posted on facebook that new cylinders are arriving tomorrow. Hopefully they'll have the ride up and running soon.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

The parts haven't arrived so I can't see a Swedish midsummer opening. They aren't in 'installation and testing-mode' yet.

Kolmården just confirmed on facebook that the new cylinders have not arrived yet, and that the ride will be closed this weekend. They plan to open the ride beginning of next week.

Ingen premiärtur under midsommarhelgen!
Kolmården har i skrivande stund inte fått dom nya cylindrarna från vår leverantör Rocky Mountain i USA. Därför kommer Wildfire vara stängd under midsommarhelgen. Vi planerar för premiärtur till början av nästa vecka.
Trevlig midsommar!

According to Kolmården's Facebook the new cylinders will be delivered at lunch-time today (which actually is about right now), they will start installing them this afternoon and after some testing they will open Wildfire!

Snart körklart! Vid lunch idag levereras de nya cylindrarna till Wildfires säkerhetsbyglar hit till Kolmården och attraktionsteamet kommer att spendera eftermiddagen med att montera dem på tåget. Om allt flyter på är det sedan bara testkörningar kvar innan våra gäster kan uppleva världens bästa berg- och dalbana i trä.
