It’s Goin’ Down! – Verbolten Construction Photo Reveals Freefall Drop Track
One of the elements inside Verbolten’s mysterious ‘event building’ may have been uncovered. BGWFans has a construction photo showing what may be the rumored drop section. It’s been thought that a horizontal section of track that drops (like the one seen on Alton Towers’ Thirteen) would be the “first-of-its-kind in the U.S.” element that the new roller coaster will be able to boast. Based on these photos and the leaked schematics, it’s a pretty good bet that Verbolten will bring us our very own “freefall” drop section.
It’s been noted by the geeks that the drop may not technically be a “freefall” because it’s controlled (by hydraulics, I think) and not completely free to drop via gravity. I’m just going with the coined term for this unique element as I don’t quite know of a better more accurate one.
