^ That doesn't get people through the gates like new attractions do. I'd agree with this if they were to add atleast a little something to the park each year such as a flat, new 3D movie, kiddie expansion, ect. along with adding theming.

BGW does not struggle to get families through the gates.

Good f*** nuggets this is awesome. The theming is coming along surprisingly well for the station as well as the ride; looking forward to more updates!

I'm liking the looks of Verbolten, I really like to see some testing footage of the ride does anyone know when this will begin?

I'm also from united kingdom, and we have a very similar attraction called TH13TEEN, But this coaster seem to be a much better version. I hate when people discuss about how Busch Garden copied the whole 13 idea with the drop section. It muddled with my mind quite a bit when I heard on the video about it's the "First of it's kind, They had to come up with name for it because it hasn't been done before". That exact saying confused me a little however, I can't wait to try the ride out for myself.

One more thing before i finish here. - When Does Verbolten Officially open to public?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

There have been rumors floating around about soft openings before the 18th, take it with a grain of salt.

^A huge grain of salt--BGW rarely "soft opens" a ride. These rumors pop up whenever the park is building a new attraction.

Definitely on the "believe it when I see it" list--but I may be surprised yet.

The park has been testing the ride, but hasn't posted any video of it as far as I know. When talking about the ride, BGW usually refers to Verbolten as the "first of its kind in the U.S." (or something along those lines).

Awesome update Chuck! Thanks for posting it. Verbolten is looking fantastic, and they're really going the extra mile with the theming. It looks like the perfect coaster for BGW!
I would rather be off riding coasters!
