The ride's drive tyres are here:-

These drive tyres are like the ones from Steel Vengeance and Twisted Timbers, rather than those from Wildfire and other Vekoma coasters, meaning Vekoma probably isn't doing the ride system for this coaster.

Or, perhaps, it could be that Steel Vengeance, Twisted Timbers, and Untamed all use RMC’s new-gen trains as opposed to Wildfire and the rest of the bunch, which use RMC’s old-gen trains (Bar New Texas Giant, Iron Rattler and the Raptors)?

Wildfire uses different drive tyres and friction brakes compared to all other Gen 1 RMCs, so this isn't the case. This isn't a Vekoma ride system. RMC did all the others.

Anyone know when the next making of Untamed video is due to be released?

Vekoma didn’t do the rise system for Wildfire either...? I really don’t get where that’s come from. Vekoma literally only supported with the steel framework on Wildfire’s lifthill and first drop...? That’s it.

They did the ride system (brakes, lift, drive tyres and computer system). You can literally tell this by watching a POV of the ride and comparing it to the likes of Lech Coaster.

In this interview I made at EAS 2017, Vekoma Vice-President claims their company indeed designed the 'drive system' for Wildfire as part of a cooperation between Vekoma, RMC and Kolmarden. Not many people watched the interview admittedly, but that's maybe where @CrashCoaster's assertion comes from:

Interestingly, PvB also says Wildfire was a one-off cooperation. It was back in 2017 so maybe things changed since, but it does raise questions about Vekoma's actual involvement in upcoming European projects.

Guys, why is it so hard to stay on topic for this coaster, instead of rumbling about whether or not some breaks on some coaster are from some mafucaturer?
Because:
A) We're excitable goons.
B) It's related to the hardware of the new ride.
C) Some people are so hung up on the detail that it's important to correct them when they get the details wrong.

It's unfortunate that you don't like it, but try to roll with it. It's all part of the fun.

^If you're using desktop, you just need to copy and paste each photo into your post. Like this:-















You're welcome. If you're using mobile, I'll usually post them into a Discord server then copy them to the site but it only works if you embed the image by pressing the "Image" button above your post. :)

This looks amazing, I'm honestly wondering if I'm looking forward to this or Zadra more tbh. We need more RMCs in Europe (and the rest of the world that isn't the USA, for that matter).

EDIT:- Also, @CoasterMac305, you were totally right about that first double inversion, as if we had any doubts.

Sexy coaster!

What do you mean with "that art thing"?

I have to say that I find the themeing of the zone worked out realy well. Even the grafiti in Merlin's castle. The only thing that realy sucks is the grafiti text (So the images are fine)
