New Videos Give Us a Better Look at Verbolten
Busch Gardens Williamsburg has posted a few new videos of Verbolten. They give a somewhat revealing look at the inside of the event building. Also, park officials speak about both launches, the “free fall” and signature drop to the Rhine River, as well as the queue house.

I was glad to see how much Busch Gardens was willing to show. Many of its secrets had already been revealed anyway. Why not promote the ride as much as you can without giving everything away? We still don’t know what kind of special effects we might experience during the indoor section. So, something will still be a surprise. Also, the general public will likely know very little about the ride as it has a terrain layout and an indoor section. I’m about equally as excited for the ride as I was before watching the videos, but I do appreciate the behind-the-scenes look and the park’s efforts to get the word out. There’s no sense in being so secretive that it hampers the buzz for the ride.
