Ride experience

The train leaves the station, takes a 180 degree right turn and climbs up the chain lift hill to a height of 120 feet above ground. At the top, the train turns 90 degrees to the left before negotiating the first drop of 155 feet. 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.

Color scheme

Brown track and supports.


2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder harnesses. The seats are positioned slightly higher than other Bolliger & Mabillard Sitting Coaster installations and lack a front handrail, giving a more open feeling.


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.[2]
