I am also not too fond of the name. It doesn't roll of the tongue so easy for me. Some of the others that came and went as possibilities were definitely better. I do however like that Verbolten means forbidden. That could translate into some awesome scenery/theme ideas. They could go anywhere with it!

I agree that Verbolten is a "clunky" name but it has character! I think BGW will be able to built a good theme around this coaster.

(Here's a prayer its not center on the AutoBahn!)

The name "Verbolten" is alright, I can't complain about it, but it is not something I would use to name a coaster. Hopefully they stick with that name though and don't pull a BGT and lead everyone to think it will be called Verbolten and then the actual name will be something like Quick Bolt... Hahaha I still can't get over the name Cheetah Hunt, Cheetaka was MUCH better!

^And let's not forget "Backlot Stunt Coaster." I have no issues with "Verbolten," but we'll see how it all pans out with the ride's theming.

I think Verbolten is a very appropriate name, and it's translation is very fitting for a ride that is presumed to weave through the woods. I don't see why people would be worried about the name being a mouthful. I think Alpengeist is far from smooth off the tounge, but it's still an awesome name.

I couldn't agree more with all these statements.
