The only bad part of the announcement was that the ride wouldn't open until 2016, nearly two years from that point. Thankfully now we're already closing in on the end of '15, meaning that the ride has made much progress and is now under vertical construction.
Seen above in one of several photos released by Rocky Mountain, the first vertical structure is growing by the day. I'm not totally familiar with the worksite as I haven't been to Sweden lately, or ever, but it looks like the start of the ride's second hill.
For those that need a refresher on Wildfire's layout and statistics, check out the original concept art and the like in this post we did.
Or, you can watch the brand new point of view video that the park has released, embedded below. This is certainly one of the 2016 projects to keep an eye on as it progresses!
