Verbolten rollercoaster concept art

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has released a new teaser video for Verbolten, the multi-launch roller coaster that will open at the park in spring 2012.

The video plays on the ride's theme, which is based around Germany's autobahn (highway) system. It shows a car driving through the mysterious "Black Forest", where it encounters a number of hazards - many of which are likely to be reflected in the set-pieces on Verbolten when it makes its debut.

Verbolten will feature several launch sections that will propel riders at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. The ride's trains will be themed around cars, and its circuit will feature both indoor and outdoor sections. A special element will take place inside a large show building.

Detailed plans for the new rollercoaster have previously been posted online, with the ride being manufactured by German firm Zierer.

Is there any proper reason for the namen? Obviously it's meant to sound German, but the colsest German word I can think of would be "Verboten" which means "forbidden".
