Built on the site of the former Big Bad Wolf, this Zierer roller coaster is a high-speed ride through the Black Forest, with two launches and a show scene building, leading up to a 90-foot final drop over the river.
A good new coaster design that is well themed. A couple of launches. A surprise drop in the middle and a nice finish. - Joe Schwartz
Easily one of my favorite family coasters! The attention to detail is superb! The cars look like real German sports cars, the theming is up to par with Disney, the ride is a perfect step up from the junior coasters, and it is a really fun ride! -9 - Ryan Pickhardt
Wow! Busch Gardens really did it! Every bit is very well themed. The indoor section reminded me of an improved, more intense, Mummy ride. The outdoor section, while short, packs quite a punch that gets slightly rough. Overall, one of the my favorite coasters. 9/10. - David L.
