^There are going to be lots of lighting and special effects going on, as well. There was also something in the plans about to giant pairs of hands that resembled tree limbs that will be above the drop section.

Hearing the 'howl' of BBW in the video brought a tear to my eye- but sadly, I don't think the previous PREVIOUS coaster's adornment will be there either.

(For those who looked carefully, on BBW, just after the 'voyage' through the village- to the left of the train was a light decoration from... Die Wildkatze, which stood on the site where BBW/Verbolten's platform now stands. If you blined, you missed it- but it was there!).

I hope so too. If not the fact that the kept the station and all the water drop footers is sort of homage :)

That section really does look cool. Hopefully, I can make a quick trip up to BGW next year.

Oh wow. That looks SO much more intense than I was expecting. Just look at that dip down in that turnaround! And the entrance to that helix should be great!

As seen above, track work for the indoor section has been completed. I was at the park today and have my own Photo update including photos of the Rhine drop and the station work.

The "support" near the Rhine looks like a drill..... Most of the footers (probably 70% or more have been pour and/or completed) either waiting for curing or ready for track erection.

Now on the the pics.

AWESOME PICTURES! Thanks a lot! Verbolten is comin along great. And maybe the reason its going up so fadst is that they want to test all the special effects before opening! Just my 2 cents.
