Busch Gardens Williamsburg has completed the track for its new multi-launch roller coaster Verbolten, which will open at the Virginia theme park this spring.

Here's an update from the park, with some footage from inside the ride's show building, currently under construction.

Verbolten will be a high-speed ride through the Black Forest, along the course of the old Bid Bad Wolf coaster.

I saw Busch gardens mentioned is somewhere around 2800 feet? That seems quite short for a roller coaster.

Revenge of the Mummy in Orlando is 2200 feet if we're comparing apples to apples.

rcdb.com has vervbolten at 2835'. That is 35 feet longer than Big Bad Wolf was.

I'm actually pretty excited about this coaster. I hope the inside, darkride portion of the ride slows down like Revenege of the Mummy so the ride won't seem too short. I like hybrid rides with great themeing combined with the best that roller coasters can offer.

I wouldn't expect the indoors portion of the ride to be too slow as there is a launch a couple hundred feet before it.

Big Bad Wolf was really that short? It always seemed much longer to me. Perhaps this is some hope for this ride.

I think the thing that made Big Bad Wolf seem long was the two lift hills. It took forever to get up them.
