As the train enters the show building, it is accelerated forward thanks to the LSMs.  Once indoors, the train is met by darkness and the sound of wind.  Lightning bolts flash and a loud crash is heard as the trains reach the end of the launch section.

This lightning bolt is probably a reference to the ride's name.  The German word "verboten" translates to "forbidden" in English.  The lightning bolt in the Black Forest, and the bolt hidden within the letter V in the Verbolten logo, may be responsible for the play on words.
