Busch Gardens" Verbolten Opens Friday!

For all you roller coaster enthusiasts, BG's Verbolten opens Friday, May 18. There's been lots of hype for this new thrill ride that takes passengers through the Black Forest of Germany, and it's quite the adventure.

I had an opportunity to ride it today, and it is truly a great coaster!

BixDoc, how cool that you've gotten to try it! I'm not a huge coaster fan, but I do plan to try Verbolten at least once this summer!

I rode Verbolten today! It's a really good coaster, nicely themed throughout.

In addition to Verbolten, I also rode DarKastle - I'd forgotten how much fun that one could be! Before leaving the park, I took the train from Caribou Station to Tweedside Station, and watched Pirates 4-D - another fun show.

BG wasn't as busy as I thought it might be. I left early, around 12:30, and the car lines were still pretty short.

Rode it, good. Not quite as thrilling as the other coasters, more about the hype. I see this as a copy of the ride 13 in the UK, which also has a drop. Except this ride does much more after the drop. See my recent TR to get ideas of where to stay.
