So then, Verbolten is unofficially open! The ride operated from 1.30pm til ride close at about 8.30pm yesterday with no technical problems at all and it is hoped that it will remain open for the majority of the weekend, with the official opening still being May 19th. The good thing about this soft opening is that we now have reviews and a POV albeit from a few rows back!
The general consensus is that this is a great addition to the park that fills the gap in the parks coaster line up perfectly. Some reviews of the ride can be seen in this
article on BGWFans.com.

The detail in the theming is very impressive indeed, reminds me of the theming quality at Europa. Definitely a step up for BGW which is fantastic.
