ALMS7TH, one of the members of the BGWFans Forums, LINK REMOVED! that there is a segment with an 86 degree bank inside the event building. Also, B-Mac LINK REMOVED! that the Rhine River drop has about a 52 degree angle and that the coaster is comprised of 171 segments of track.

Ok, I'm going to stop spamming up this thread now. :p

Everyday, I get more and more excited about Verbolten! Looks to be some awesome airtime ( :airtime: ), a sweet special effects room, an awesome BBW style drop, and 2 launches! Could it get any better?!

This ride really pays tribute to BBW. The track profile (track plans side) tells the story. Not just the end; but also the beginning gives a nod. Very cool.

I was a little bummed when they took out BBW, now I'm a little excited for this new ride. Looking forward to it next year.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

As long as nothing changes, it looks like I will be able to make it back to the park next summer. Really looking forward to being able to ride Verbolten. So, may GREAT rides opening next year!

^ Hahahahah :lmao: Well actually now that I think of it blinking lights seem more realistic (fits the car theme better), but not likely at all.
