On Good Friday Kolmarden opens for the season. But Wildfire will be closed, despite earlier indications that the circumscribed roller coaster would open immediately. - We await the detailed planning process, says Helena Axelsson, spokeswoman for the zoo, to the NT.
Wildfire reopened a year ago, was soon shut down for safety reasons, but then open up again when the season began in earnest. The turmoil did not end there. When Kolmarden Zoo closed for years have been serious questions about the giant initiative's future. Land and Environmental Court then demanded a new detailed when the building permit was not enough for such a large building.
After several trips, it was recently announced that Wildfire could be kept open this year, in parallel with the paper process is ongoing.
Now runs the zoo, it appears, in consultation with the municipality of Norrköping. Detailed planning will continue until a decision has been taken in the city council on 19 June. During this process, the zoo decided not to restart Wildfire, type NT.

Kolmården confirms: Wildfire will reopen this summer!
The Swedish animal and theme park Kolmården confirmed today that their wooden roller coaster 'Wildfire' will finally reopen during this summer holiday. When exactly will be communicated later.
Finally, Wildfire will soon open again after almost eight months of closure. The construction license of the RMC coaster was withdrawn in October last year due to possible negative noise disturbance for the environment, with uncertainty about Wilfdire's continued existence.
Early 2017, the Swedish construction and environmental committee decided not to break down the roller coaster, but Kolmården had to make a new detailed destination plan for the zone where Wildfire is located in. That plan has been submitted and is expected to be approved by the authorities next Monday. That means Wildfire will finally be able to reopen this summer holiday. That news has already officially been announced on the park's website: "Wildfire reopens soon! Soon more information about the magical reopening date."
