Friday, May 18, 2012 #631 - Verbolten at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

On this week's show, Mike heads to Williamsburg, Virginia to take on Busch Gardens' newest roller coaster - Verbolten!

Verbolten isn't your typical roller coaster.

It's an immersive thematic attraction that sends passengers twisting and turning through the forbidden Black Forest.

There are a ton of great surprises and some of the most detailed theming Busch Gardens has ever done.

Throughout the show, Mike will describe the entire new attraction area as well as the ride itself.

He'll interview Larry Giles, Busch Gardens' Vice President for Design and Engineering.  He'll tell us what it was like to take on such a massive project and what guests can expect from Verbolten.

He'll also interview SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment's Corporate Director of Creative Development, Brian Morrow.  Brian was responsible for the attraction's storyline and rich theming.  He'll give us the attraction's back story and tell us about some of the unique aspects of the ride.

Plus, you'll get to ride along with Mike and his brother Greg as they "Brave the Black Forest" for the first time!

Back in Indiana, EB will have the results of our weekly poll question, play a Live Trip Report from Six Flags Great Adventure's opening day AND he'll have a new clue for our SOUNDWAVE Contest!

It's a jam-packed all-new episode of The Original Theme Park Podcast!
