Verbolten is a Zierer launched roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. The ride uses the location of the former Big Bad Wolf.

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

Verbolten features two launches, sounds, and lights. The same famous drop formerly found on Big Bad Wolf has been replicated in this design.[1] The ride also has a vertical drop track.

Verbolten has been themed as the "escape from the Black Forest".

Ride Experience[edit | edit source]

As the train exits the station, riders hear a paragraph that says "Remember, don't look back as you brave the Black Forest!" The train makes a left and right turn. After the right turn, the train accelerates from 0-45 mph in 2.3 seconds into a building. The building has lights and sound effects. After a short drop, riders go pass an over-banked curve and a helix. The train goes through a block brake and makes a left turn. Riders will slowly move along, as sounds are heard. A vertical drop track then plunges the train 18 feet. Riders exit the building by launching from 0-53 mph in 2.7 seconds. The train hits an s-curve and a block brake. Riders drop near the water as they pass an s-curve and the final brake run.

Trains[edit | edit source]

5 trains with 8 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 16 riders per train.
