Wildfire is a wooden roller coaster located at Kolmården in Norrköping, Östergötland, Sweden.


The ride was announced in April 2014, but construction was delayed due to problems with planning permission.[1]

Wildfire's media day was on 17 June 2016 however the official opening was delayed due to a potential fault affecting cylinders in the trains. While the fault was not experienced on Wildfire itself, it was closed as a precaution until the parts were replaced. It finally opened on June 28, 10 days after its original opening date.

In October 2016, the attraction was closed as it had its operating permits revoked by the Swedish government due to the lack of a detailed plan. Rumors began to spread that the ride would be demolished.[2] Due to this, Wildfire was standing but not operating until April 2017, when the park announced that it would reopen with the park that season. The ride reopened in June 2017.[3]




2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.
