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 lot of fun. Big Bad Wolf was better, but Verbolten is still a must-do in BGW!
Indoor section is incredibly well done, and the theming is great. My only complaint is that it just wasn't anything special when you ride it in the front row. A 10/10 coaster should be amazing from all rows, not just the rear ones. But the coaster gets a great 9/10 from me, despite living in the shadow of it's predecessor, Big Bad Wolf. The park would have been better off refurbishing Big Bad Wolf and just adding a coaster in another part of the park. But you can't expect everything!
A good new coaster design that is well themed. A couple of launches. A surprise drop in the middle and a nice finish.
