Busch Gardens Williamsburg completes the track for Verbolten

January 27, 2012, 11:05 AM · 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.

January 28, 2012 at 5:47 AM · rcdb.com has vervbolten at 2835'. That is 35 feet longer than Big Bad Wolf was.

January 30, 2012 at 9:12 AM · I think the thing that made Big Bad Wolf seem long was the two lift hills. It took forever to get up them.
