No idea where these came from, but they were just linked to me in a Skype chat. Plenty of wood going up on Wildfire :)

The latest episode of Building Wildfire offers something a bit different to the usual construction updates, that being some footage of the view from the top of the lift hill. It certainly does look like it will be magnificent!

Construction is progressing well according to the latest episode of Building Wildfire. Track is reportedly due to arrive in the next 20-25 days, allowing the lift hill and first drop to be completed, with the lift hill support towers planned to start going up in the next week or so. Work has also begun on the station building, with its foundations and some of the framework now in place.

This week's episode of Building Wildfire sees the 'ledger crew' (who it would seem are from England) explain what their role is.

A couple of days ago Vekoma posted the following photo to their Facebook stating that track has begun to arrive on site.

Yesterday's Building Wildfire episode focused on the track, with a member of the track crew explaining the process of installing it. It would seem that track will start going up within a week or so.
