FYI, it's 5 trains. Because of the different breaks on the track, they can run 5 trains at once. They only put on as many trains that they can stop safely. In Verbolten's case, there's two at the station, one on top of the bridge, one at the entrance to the event building and one at the exit I imagine.

I figured the attendant had a few things wrong. That's why I put that disclaimer on there that I only laid eyes on 4 trains, I didn't realize there were 3 in reserve and two on the track. The one thing the attendant did have going for her was her energy. I would have probably bought anything she said had I not been following this coaster more closely.

Great stuff, Tom, thanks for sharing! I hope to make it to BGW during my annual Virginia pilgrimage sometime in late summer and Verbolten is #2 on my list of new coasters to visit this year (Wild Eagle at Dollywood is #1).
