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.

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.

I can honestly say this is the first ride at Any Seaworld park I was disappointed in. It is good but I guess my expectations were too high - vernon griffin

As it turns out, a drop down the rhine is much better inverted because you feel so close to the river. Verbolten is okay, but I started to miss Big Bad Wolf when I got off, I wasn't so impressed with this one. Verbolten seems too short but I'd ride it anyway. - Bradley Keith
