Outlaw Run- very loud, definitely will get complaint
Others- from the videos, NTaG is almost Gerstlauer silent.

Chatted a bit with the owners of the park today. I'll say more when I can but as of right now they have told me to share this message: "Let everyone know that Wildfire will happen and we appreciate all the support that we are receiving from coaster fans all over the world."

Well that is certainly a relief! I sat back and watched the POV a few more times today and if this never happened it would be a shame.
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

Thanks Robb. Hopefully the park and the locals can reach an agreement on this. Once this opens I'll be buying me airplane ticket to Sweden!

That's such a relief. It's the matter of time now, hopefully it will happen just as planned.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Happy to hear the plan is still on. Now we can do no more then just wait till the park releases more. Let's just hope the delay won't be big.

Great to hear that. It would be a real shame if it didn't come true at all.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Both the park and the local politicians want this, so it will definitely happen! The question is when :P

I believe that they should be able to use the polyurethane wheels like they did on Goliath to make it quieter (Goliath's initial test runs did have some noise, but now that coaster isn't loud at all).

They are going with nylon wheels on TC and WC. Their track manufacturing is accurate enough to ensure smoothness. The top layers need to be replaced every 5 years so the track damage from nylon wheels doesn't matter anyway.
