First drop on Wildfire...

What degree descent is Wildfire @ Silver Dollar City? It feels like at least 75 degrees in the back seat.

It is around 73 degrees I think, maybe a little bit more. It is pretty steep. The free-fall on the first drop is amazing.

I really don't think it's anywhere near 75 degrees. Even the B&M hypercoasters are only in the lower-60s. I'd guess that Wildfire is something like 57-60 degrees.

-Dennis (who, in his pre-enthusiast days, used to tell people that The Beast's drop was so steep that it curved under itself, because that's what it looked like to him. Little did he know it's only 45 degrees)

I live in Miami Beach. It's not so much fun when you live here! Get me out! Lack of coasters, lack of cold, lack of elevation, lack of intellect, lack of English.

DLDude13 - IIRC there is only one turn after the cork, the one into the brake run.
