Verbolten track installation

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has installed the final piece of track in the circuit of Verbolten, the multi-launch roller coaster that will open at the park in spring 2012.

The park released an image of the track section being lowered into place via its official Twitter account, and it can be seen below. Verbolten will feature both indoor and outdoor sections, with a special element taking place inside a large show building. The new ride will replace the Big Bad Wolf coaster in the Oktoberfest section of Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Verbolten will be themed around Germany's autobahn (highway) system, and will see guests racing off into the mysterious "Black Forest". It will feature several launch sections that will proper riders at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. The coaster's 5 trains will be themed around cars, and each will have a different color and design.

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