Vild-Svinet (Danish for Wild Boar) is a steel roller coaster located at BonBon-Land in Holme-Olstrup, Sjælland, Denmark. Opened on May 16, 2003, it was the first Euro-Fighter model from Gerstlauer and the first roller coaster to have a "beyond-vertical" drop, at 97 degrees.

Design

The ride is painted red with yellow supports. Shortly after its opening, the highest points of track were painted sky blue, presumably to blend in with the surroundings.
