Ride ExperienceEdit

The train leaves the station, takes a 180 degree right turn and climbs up the chain lift, to 120 feet (37 meters). At the top, the train turns 90 degrees to the left before negotiating the first drop of 155 feet (47 meters). This is followed by an immelmann, a vertical loop and a cobra roll. The train then heads up a banked curve into a corkscrew and a 230 degree turn into the final brake run.

TrainsEdit

2 trains with 8 cars per train. Riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 32 riders per train. Each seat has ratcheting harness.

The seats in the cars are slightly higher than usual, meaning the riders legs are left dangling, meaning riders must be cautious not to loose their shoes. The cars are also designed with seats that lean back slightly more compared to other B&M sit-down designs. These cars are designed to take on huge inversions and drops, while giving the rider a surprise feeling different than any other roller coaster to date.

ThemingEdit

The theme of the ride is based on the story of an old Ozark inventor, Dr. Horatio Harris. Dr. Horatio Harris has an obsession to create a powered flying contraption for flight across the Ozark Mountains. Wildfire is the fuel the Doctor developed for his flying machine.
