Agreed, disappointing is a weird term to use. It’s really really good, the first few elements are incredible and the rest of the layout is full of airtime. It does lose a little momentum on the last section back to the station but I wouldn’t class the whole ride as a disappointment because of that.Wildfire is amazing and not drawn out at all. The ride is a little sluggish to the end but it's not as bad as videos make it look.
It's just a victim of RMC having such a fab reputation. Wildfire's pacing is fantastic there's just one hill towards the end that lets it down slightly and it's no different from the stall turn on Nemesis before the final inversion.. I guess when all the other elements around it are so good it makes it stand out abit.^ I'm yet to ride Wildfire but the general consensus seems to be that it's fun but a little too drawn out and has pacing issues.
Before riding Wildfire I had ridden a couple of American RMCs and I was completely blown away by how insanely well they rode. Wildfire, being much taller, faster and longer than any of the American counterparts at the time, my expectations had sky-rocketed. Of course it was an excellent addition, but sub-par if you compare it to its cousins across the pond; it has pacing issues and it doesn't feel as intense and out-of-control as the pictures may suggest.It's news to me that Wildfire was a disappointment...
