Excitingly this image, posted by the owner of Parks and Resorts on ThemeParkReview, shows that track has now begun to be installed!

This week's episode of Building Wildfire looks at the process (particularly welding) of installing the track.

Here's also an image from the Wildfire Instagram account showing progress on the station building and the lift hill's support structure.

This week's episode of Building Wildfire is quite something, consisting of aerial footage of the ride which really gives you a sense of its impressive scale. This is certainly the way to put yourself on the theme park map!

Another week, another episode of Building Wildfire. This week's episode takes a look at the station, and specifically some of the authentic saw-mill theming that has been installed.

They look awesome!

Interesting that there are only two, I'd usually expect three for a ride of this length.

With just over two weeks until Wildfire will open, this week's episode of Building Wildfire features more incredible aerial drone footage showing that the track is nearing completion with just the initial drop left to install.

Here are also some photos from RMC's Facebook.

Seems concerning to be so close to opening with the track not being complete.

The last section of track looks to have been installed today. It's a very steep drop.

I'm a bit worried that they have less than a week to test and tweak the ride, I hope they'll get everything done in time...

It looks as awesome as expected. Tough one to call between this and Lightning Rod, although the views this offers may just swing it!

Also here's Kolmarden's version if you don't want to give TPR your views :P

I'm sure Lewis meant it as a joke, but considering it is Kolmarden's video, it only make sense to watch it via the official Kolmarden channel as opposed to the TPR one :)

As for the ride, it looks bloody brilliant and so quick.
