LSM multi-launch freefall coaster
Minimum rider height:
The secrets of Germany's Black Forest come to life in this brand new, multi-launch family coaster. With impressive special-effects and unimaginable scenery, a tandem ride through the woods turns sinister thanks to snarling vines and a first-in-America secret hidden in a dark showbuilding.

Meh at best. Very disappointed by the ride. After riding Cheatah Hunt in the winter I really looked forward to Verbolten. While there were some good parts, in my mind they were limited to the two launches and the drop. You can keep all the stuff in the building, way too much going on in the dark. Ride is not as smooth as I expect from a modern coaster. The vertical drop feature was nothing exciting and all it did was stop the ride in the middle.
Fortunately BG allows pass members exclusive access to the ride for an hour on Th, Fr, Sa & Su during June. I didn't have to fight crowds. I rode it a second time to give it a fair shot, but came away with the conclusion that I will not wait any longer than 15 minutes to ride again. Not awful, but not special
