The 88-foot drop from the bridge down to the river is nearly identical to the big drop on Big Bad Wolf. In fact, the concrete footers used on the previous ride were reused on Verbolten. This was done to minimize the environmental impact of the new ride. The reuse limited the number of changes to the lake and the trees surrounding the ride.
The park refers to this body of water as the Rhine River, but it is actually the western branch of the Brewery Road Lake.
