The second piece I posted is the first in what I hope to be a new series of articles attempting to give readers a first-hand experience of what it's like to ride some of my favorite coasters. The first one is on Busch Gardens' Verbolten, which opened last year as a replacement to an old favorite, Big Bad Wolf. I was very skeptical about this one when I first heard about it. Ii remember it being described as a "family-type coaster," which it is definitely not!

Stay tuned for more tales of coasters coming soon!
