Busch Gardens Williamsburg (BGW BGE) Discussion Thread

P. 453 - Bierfest begins July 30th

Recommended Posts

I really think each car should have their own license plates instead of all the cars having the same one.

 

So far I'm totally loving the indoor portion's layout. Can't wait for Christmas Town to take effect later this year. We'll hopefully get a better look at the building and the final drop by then.

 

Next year's gonna be a huge year for VA parks.

^ Not really.

 

Rock n' Roller Coaster has individualized plates for each of their cars. Plus, I'm pretty sure most places require drivers to use different plates for different cars anyway.

Actually Rock N Roller Coaster has one plate one the front car, and one on the back car. Its a super stretch limo, not multiple limos. I know because Ive been on it, and Steven Tyler from Aerosmith calls in for a super stretch limo for the fans (people waiting in line) to take them to "the Forum".

Just to clear things up I think one was referring to "car" as one car of a coaster train. The other was referring to "car" as the entire themed train. As in the difference between the Italian job trains (each car of the train is one car with a license plate) and the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster trains (each train is one long "car," with each train having a separate license plate.)

 

Anyway, this ride is looking like it will be ridiculous amounts of fun. I am not going to tell my sisters about the drop track just so they can be surprised (and I normally would tell them)...I told my dad because I was bursting to tell someone. I know I'm such a coaster nerd...

I wonder what we can expect from Verbolten intensity wise. Right now it looks as if it could be very intense (but not Intimidator 305 intense ).

 

I'm prepared for enthusiasts to bitch about it not being intense enough just like they did with Cheetah Hunt, because that's what enthusiasts do.

Those turns actually look very tight within the show building. Considering how fast another version of this same coaster model travels around corners, this could be a surprise. Then again, they may just want to slow it down to the point where you are focusing more on the FX than the coaster itself. I hope that they give you more than just a split second to enjoy the interior. Besides, launches tend to be one of the more intense coaster experiences and this one already has two. Not bad for a family coaster.

 

As for the interior, I imagine that the walls showing in the concept art will probably be either backdrops within the building, barriers between scenes, or both. Either way, this one is looking good.

I'll definitely check this out for myself this weekend. Verbolten is coming along nicely. I'm glad that BGW is taking a different tack than BGT did with Cheetah Hunt (which is a great ride, by the way). The dark-ride section is intriguing (the track layout looks great).

 

I agree, I like the idea of the two parks having two totally different coaster experiences. Not that I don't love having SheiKra and Griffon, I just prefer the parks coming up with something a little more than an extra immelmann.

Personally I think Busch shouldve built the first giga diver.

 

I'm still waiting for a Twist/Dive - a dive coaster where the coaster twists on the drop - that way when you crest the top and are held you are looking at bare ground and not the track ahead of you...

Just wanted to let you all know that we just pushed out 12 pictures of the bridge before Verbolten's drop. LINK REMOVED!. Not all of them are new, but they're all full quality. Enjoy!

 

PS: Like last time, you don't need to sign up to see them, but if you like them, please consider doing so.

Could someone explain to me what a drop track is?

 

A drop track is when the coaster train stops into a MCBR/ block type segment, comes to a complete stop, and the whole track piece drops along with the train. At the bottom of the drop, the track piece reconnects with another track piece and completes the ride.

 

There is only one other coaster in the world that has a drop track, and that is Th13teen at Alton Towers. There are a couple videos on YouTube that have clear shots (with nightvision, of course) of what goes on in the drop track section.

Skip to around 1:40 and you'll see it.

The big difference between Verbolten's drop and Thirteen's drop is that Thirteen's sends the train backwards afterward, while Verbolten will continue forward.

For those of you wondering what an experience on verbolten would be like, here's a video of an existing model:

 

But the experience on Verbolten will be nothing like that. This is a completely different ride, in every last sense of the word. From the launches to the special effects to the huge drop down to the Rhine. Just because this is another Zierer with similar seats doesn't mean that these rides are going to be similar. At all.

On the contrary - that three-rail track is there for a reason. It seems like those turns and spirals in the event building are going to be pretty intense.
