Construction has started on Verbolten, a new multi-launch rollercoaster from Zierer for Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, Virginia.
Located in the American park’s Oktoberfest Village area, on the site of the former Big Bad Wolf coaster, the 2,835ft-long ride will feature two launches, themed elements, sound and light effects, high speed turns and an 88ft final drop to the water. Reaching a top speed of 53mph, guests will be seated in one of five 16-seat trains.
From the moment visitors approach the new roller coaster, they will feel a sense of mystery and fun. A German tourist centre serves as the ride entrance and as the launching point for an autobahn touring experience that will keep them on the edge of their seats.
As they climb into their car for a scenic drive through the countryside, passengers quickly detour into a harrowing family adventure filled with pulse-pounding excitement through the forbidden Black Forest. They’ll twist and turn their way through this adventure, plunging along the river’s edge.
