Theme

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.

Track layout

The train leaves the station, takes a 180 degree right turn and climbs up the chain lift hill to 120 feet. 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 loop, a vertical loop and a cobra roll. Finally, the train goes through a corkscrew and a 230 degree turn into the final brake run.
