Big Bad Wolf was a steel suspended terrain roller coaster built by Arrow Dynamics. It operated at Busch Gardens Williamsburg from June 15, 1984 to September 7, 2009. No official reason of closure was given but most speculate that large maintenance costs were to blame. A train, track section, support materials and the sign package were donated to the National Roller Coaster Museum for display.
The roller coaster was replaced by Verbolten.
