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.

Design[edit | edit source]

The ride had two chain lift hills, the first being 50 feet tall and the second 100 feet.

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 trains with 7 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 28 riders per train.
