Detailed plans and concept art have been revealed for Busch Gardens Williamsburg's planned new rollercoaster 2012, which is set to be named Verbolten.

As reported yesterday, the details and images were originally leaked on the Theme Park Review forums and the BGWFans.com fansite. The full set of plans and concept art have now been posted to Screamscape, which also reports that Busch Gardens Williamsburg registered "Verbolten" as a trademark in March.

Details revealed in the artwork include the nature of the special element that features inside the ride's show building, as well as the car-themed ride trains. It has also been confirmed that German manufacturer Zierer will build the new rollercoaster, and not Intamin as had been widely expected.

Verbolten is one of the potential names that Busch Gardens Williamsburg asked fans to comment on in January. The ride is set to feature an "autobahn" (highway) theme to match its location in the Germany area of the park, with the park promising that it will "combine fast launches, special effects and indoor and outdoor elements to make it a one-of-a-kind coaster experience."
